Strasbourg won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 0-3 Ligue 1 defeat in their last game at the hands of Lille.
In that match, Strasbourg managed 45% possession and 14 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. LOSC Lille Métropole got 12 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Zeki Çelik (21'), Renato Sanches (53') and Burak Yılmaz (68') scored for Lille.
Strasbourg have been quite ineffective in attack in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 4 against opponents over the course of their previous 6 matches. In those games, Le Racing have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 13. We will have to see whether or not that trend will be continued on in this game.

Team News: Lyon
Owing to an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just a single fitness problem for the Lyon boss Rudi Garcia to contend with. Anthony Lopes (Corona virus) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Strasbourg will need to push hard to be putting a goal past this Lyon side who should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a very competitive game with a 0-1 win for Lyon at full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
