Strasbourg vs Lyon: Preview

RC Strasbourg Alsace form analysis

Strasbourg’s end of season form was underwhelming as they won 0, drew 3 and lost 2 of their final 5 league games.

They managed creditable draws against European hopefuls PSG (1-1) and Nice (0-0). However, defeats to mid-table Troyes (1-1) and Lorient (1-2) highlighted inconsistencies.

Strasbourg scored just 3 goals in their last 5 matches, with Habib Diallo getting 2. Lack of creativity and goal threat was an issue.

Defensively they were reasonably solid, conceding 5 goals while keeping 2 clean sheets. But they did leak multiple goals in defeats.

Their home and away forms contrasted – they were unbeaten in 3 home games but lost both away matches without scoring. Poor away form was a worry.

Overall, Strasbourg’s form declined after an impressive first half of the season. More attacking inspiration and improving their away record will be vital targets for the season.

Olympique Lyonnais form analysis

Lyon’s end of season form was inconsistent as they won 2, lost 2 and drew 1 of their final 5 league games.

Convincing wins came against Monaco (3-1) and Reims (3-0). However, defeats to Nice (1-3) and Clermont (1-2) highlighted ongoing issues.

Lyon scored 12 goals across the 5 games, with Lacazette grabbing 6. However, they were kept to just 1 goal in 2 matches, showing they can struggle against organized defenses.

Defensively there were lapses as they conceded 8 goals, while keeping just 1 clean sheet. Individual errors continued to cost them.

Their home and away forms contrasted – they remained unbeaten at home but lost both away matches, conceding 6 goals. Poor away form remained an Achilles heel.

Overall, Lyon’s form oscillated till the end of the season. More consistency is needed – both defensively and in breaking down stubborn opponents, especially away from home.

Strasbourg vs Lyon: Prediction

Both teams have improved considerably towards the end of the last season. A close contest with both teams scoring is expected. Their previous meeting in April ended narrowly in favor of Lyon.

Both teams have shown impressive goal scoring abilities. More often than not they have done their attacking duties early on.

Both teams to score @ 1.61 odds.

1st half: Over 1.25 goals @ 2.18 odds.
