Strasbourg – Lyon, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR STRASBOURG - LYON
For Strasbourg, the season is going well over now. 9th place after 27 rounds is not a bad achievement. The problems in the team have recently been related to the drop in shape. After 5 consecutive wins in Ligue 1, there were 5 consecutive games without success, and we believe that this may be due to a relaxation, because it has long been clear that Strasbourg will not get relegated and this is always the first thought of such teams, when the season begins. This means they have accomplished their goal.
For Lyon, things are going well lately and they come after two consecutive wins, one coming for the cup. In these victories, Lyon scored 8 goals and conceded 1 goal in each of the matches, but the football they demonstrated was extremely spectacular and beautiful. For the kids, a huge test in Spain next week is coming vs. Barcelona for the Champions League, so they will think about this match.
Because Strasbourg is a very attacking team when it comes to their home games and Lyon is a overall offensive team, we think we will see goals. Still, Lyon will be a bit disconcerted, because of the match with Barca. Before the Champions League matches most of the teams don’t play at full concentration, unless the match is a key game or big derby. 4 of the last 6 games between the two teams ended with BTTS, but none of the ones which did not had BTTS, was a visit of Lyon. Prediction – BTTS at 1.82.
- Strasbourg has not scored a goal as host in Ligue 1 only once this season
- Lyon have scored at least 9 goals in their last 12 away games in Ligue 1
