      Tip Reasoning

      • Strasbourg have won seven of their last ten matches in all competitions.
      • The hosts have also won six of their last seven games at the Stade de la Meinau with 15 goals scored along the way, however they’ve kept just two clean sheets in their last nine home matches.
      • Lille have lost each of their last three games and have picked up the fourth least points away from home this season in Ligue 1.

      Lille plagued by fatigue

      Lille finished last year in 2nd place with the team brimming with quality and free of the shackles that come with Champions League participation. However, since the departures of Nicolas Pépé, Thiago Mendes and Youssouf Koné, les Dogues have struggled to return to their former glory and currently sit 7th. The fatigue of so many games domestically plus the European matches has taken its toll and it has been evident in their recent tired performances. 

      Lille have already played seven matches since the beginning of 2020 and they have started to wain with their defeat to fourth-tier Épinal underlining that. It was an embarrassing loss in the Coupe de France against a team in the same division as Lille’s reserve side.

      Les Dogues have been rather unimpressive since the start of the decade with the defeat to Épinal being joined by their losses to 16th place Dijon and the narrow 3-2 win over fifth-tier Rain l’Etape in the cup. Their away form this season has been particularly poor with three losses in their last four on the road. They have also picked up the fourth least points away from home this campaign with just five of their 31 points coming on the road. 

      Strasbourg looking forward to home comforts

      Strasbourg should sense an opportunity for the win here. Thierry Laurey’s men have generally been plodding along rather nicely this season with them sitting 8th in the league, three places higher than their final position last year. They lost their most recent match on Wednesday 3-1 but it was an extremely difficult away trip to 2nd place Marseille in the cup so the Alsatians should remain upbeat despite the defeat. 

      Strasbourg have won seven of their last ten matches in all competitions and have been particularly dominant at home recently. Due to some unfortunate scheduling, each of the Alsatians’ six matches this year have been away from home and even though they’ve coped rather well with this challenge, they’ll be eager to return to the Stade de la Meinau. They have won six of their last seven matches in the east of France with 15 goals scored in the process.

      The hosts to get the important win?

      Strasbourg returning home will be a big boost for the Alsatians and we feel they’ll be able to get the win here as a result. They have generally been in good form and with Lille plagued by fatigue and in disarray, we’re backing the hosts to win. Strasbourg have kept just two clean sheets in their last nine home matches though so we expect both teams to score here as Lille have netted in 13 of their last 15 away games. We see this finishing 2-1 to Strasbourg.
