Strasbourg is welcoming Olympique Lyonnais to Stade de la Meinau in round 7 in the French Ligue 1.
Strasbourg has been in terrible form, and they have won only 1 of their last 6 games in Ligue 1 so far this season. With only 3 points, 4 scored goals, and 13 conceded goals, Strasbourg is in 18th place in the standings. In their latest Ligue 1 games against Lille at home, Strasbourg has had 45% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 80% of the correct passes. Strasbourg was bad on both ends in this game, and they have ended up losing this match 0-3. Chahiri has scored 2 goals for Strasbourg so far, while Mitrovic and Ajorque added 1 goal each. Mothiba and Sels are both injured, and they will not be playing in this game. Strasbourg was solid last season, but they are not playing well this season, especially on the defensive end where they are averaging just over 2 conceded goals per game. I don’t think Strasbourg will have as much luck as they did last season, and it will be hard for them to secure Ligue 1 spot if they don’t get their offense going and if they don’t stabilize their defense.
After dominantly winning the first game of the season, Lyon hasn’t won any of their last 5 games in Ligue 1. I suppose a piece of good news is that Lyon has lost only 1 game so far, but they have 4 draws in their last 5 games. With 7 points, 7 scored goals, and 5 conceded goals, Lyon is in 14th place in the standings. Depay has scored 4 goals for Lyon, while Aouar and Dubois each added 1 goal. There are no injuries in Lyon as of right now, but Lopes is in quarantine because of the Coronavirus. In their latest Ligue 1 match against Marseille at home, Lyon was the dominant team with 67% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 19 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Lyon conceded a goal in the 16th minute, but thanks to Marseille conceding a red card, Lyon had a solid chance of tying the score or even winning a game. In the 28th minute, Lyon scored a goal from the penalty kick. The result hasn’t changed again in this match, and it ended in a 1-1 draw. Lyon will not be playing in the Champions League or the Europa League this season, and this is the perfect opportunity for them to get back to the top of Ligue 1 if they can keep their best player at the club during the winter transfer window.
Strasbourg is just a weak, weak team, and we are getting Lyon at a fantastic price in this match. Lyon is the better team, they play better soccer, and it’s time for them to get back on the winning track.
