Olympique Lyonnais is welcoming Strasbourg to Groupama Stadium in round 24 in the French Ligue 1.
Lyon is still in great form, and they are still winning games. Lyon is on a 3-game winning streak, and they have scored 8 goals while conceding only 1 goal during this streak. Lyon is one of the best offensive teams in Ligue 1 with 47 scored goals, and they are now in second place with 49 points, just 2 points away from the top. Defensively, Lyon is also doing a fantastic job, and they have conceded only 20 goals so far. Depay has scored 11 goals and added 6 assists, while Ekambi added 10 goals and 5 assists. There are no injuries or suspensions in Lyon at this time, but Mendes and Guimares are in danger of being suspended. Lyon was playing against Dijon on the road earlier this week, and they were the dominant team with 63% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. Lyon has scored a goal in the 22nd minute, which was enough for a 0-1 win, and for another 3 points. Alongside Lille, Lyon is the most consistent team in Ligue 1 this season, and I think they might win the title this season.
Strasbourg was actually playing well lately, and they have had a 3-game winning streak, but Strasbourg hasn’t won any of their last 3 Ligue 1 games. During these 3 games Strasbourg gas scored 3 goals while conceding 4 goals, and they have 2 draws and one loss. Thanks to those 3 wins, Strasbourg has gained some distance from the relegation zone, and they are now in 15th place with 25 points, 32 scored goals, and 36 conceded goals. In their last game against Brest at home, Strasbourg has had only 41% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. Strasbourg was leading 2-0 in the 70th minute, but then everything went downhill for Strasbourg. Their defense lost focus, the offense stopped producing and Strasbourg has conceded 2 goals in the last 10 minutes of the game. The final scored of this match was 2-2. Ajorque has been in great form this season, and he has scored 3 goals and added 3 assists so far. Sels and Simakan are injured, while Ajorque is in danger of being suspended. Strasbourg is a decent team, but not good enough to be in the top half of the table, at least this season.
The trends are heavily on Lyon’s side in this matchup, but they haven’t won their last 2 home games against Strasbourg. Lyon is in much better form here, and they are the better and more consistent team in this matchup. Once again, I’m taking Lyon and the goals here.
