On Sunday, October 18, the program of the seventh round of the French championship will start with the match Strasbourg – Lyon, the forecast for which we propose below.
“Strasbourg” did not start this championship in the best way. The fact that the team is in a weak form is clearly shown by five defeats in the six already played rounds. And it is not only the defense that is the weak side of the team. She also scores a little.
For six matches, they managed not to miss only from “Dijon” (1: 0), which takes the last place in the standings. The victory in this very meeting brought Strasbourg three points, which are now on the balance sheet. In other matches the team lost to Lorient (1: 3), Nice (0: 2), Saint-Etienne (0: 2), Monaco (2: 3) and Lille (0: 3) ) conceding at least two goals per game. Now the future hosts of the match have 13 goals conceded, and only Angers got more from their goal net.
Lyon have a good chance to change their unpleasant away statistics. The team has not won on the rivals’ fields since February, already four matches in a row – two defeats and two draws.
Not very stable “lions” started the current championship. Although stability can be called the way the team plays a draw. For six rounds she already has four draws. Basically Lyon played like this because of poor implementation. The only match when the team scored more goals per match is the opening match of the championship with Dijon (4: 1). Then there were draws with Bordeaux (0: 0), Nimes (0: 0), Lorient (1: 1) and Marseille (1: 1), as well as a defeat at Montpellier (1 : 2).
Strasbourg have won just one of their last four matches at home.
The forecast “both will score – no” has played in three of Strasbourg’s four previous matches at home.
Lyon have won just one of their last seven away games.
In four of Lyon’s six matches in the current league, the bet has played “total under 2.5”.
In the last five head-to-head meetings on the Strasbourg field, the forecast “both will score” was played.
16.02.20 Lyon Strasbourg eleven
11/30/19 Strasbourg Lyon 12
09.03.19 Strasbourg Lyon 2: 2
01/08/19 Lyon Strasbourg 12
08.24.18 Lyon Strasbourg 20
Both teams approach the match with utmost motivation. Lyon intend to end a five-game losing streak in the championship, and Strasbourg to get at least one more point. Face-to-face meetings, as a rule, are effective. There was time to work on the mistakes, so the opponents are unlikely to get hung up on defensive actions.
