Reason For Strasbourg vs Lyon Predictions

  • Lyon have won only one of their six Ligue 1 games, four of which ended level
  • Both teams have scored in each of the last five meetings between the pair

Lyon’s woes may continue at struggling Strasbourg

Lyon just haven’t been able to get going in Ligue 1 and they are in danger of emulating last season’s disappointing seventh-placed finish.

Lyon have won only one of their six league games this season and they have failed to win on all three of their away trips to Bordeaux, Montpellier and Lorient.

The on-going speculation linking talisman Memphis Depay to a move away and the hangover from their Champions League semi-final defeat to Bayern Munich haven’t helped their cause. Another tough test is in store at Strasbourg.

However, Strasbourg aren’t the force they were last season and they have lost five of their six Ligue 1 games.

The hosts boast the joint-worst defence in the division with 13 goals conceded alongside rock-bottom Dijon, who they recorded their only win of the campaign against.

With that in mind and both teams difficult to trust, backing the net to bulge at both ends makes appeal. Strasbourg netted twice in a 3-2 defeat at Monaco, so aren’t completely devoid of promise.

Both teams have scored in each of the last five meetings in Strasbourg. We also predict a 1-1 draw – Lyon’s last two games have finished that scoreline and February’s showdown between the pair also ended that way.
