Lille 17/10 to beat Strasbourg in Friday’s Ligue 1 showdown
Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Lille win
Odds: 17/10 @ Bet 365
Simply trying to close the gap on runaway league leaders PSG, Lille will travel to the Stade de la Meinau on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Strasbourg will still be believing that they can secure European football this season, they have hit a worrying run of form. In their 25 Ligue 1 appearances this season, they have recorded nine wins, nine draws and seven defeats, scoring 40 and conceding 29 in return. Despite sitting just two points adrift of jumping into sixth position, Strasbourg have now failed to win any of their last three Ligue 1 matches. More worrying Friday’s hosts have now won just two of their last seven matches at the Stade de la Meinau.
As for the visitors, continuing their very impressive run of form in the second half of the season, Lille remain in pole position to secure Champions League football this season. In their 25 Ligue 1 matches this season, they have won 15, drawn five and lost five, scoring 42 and conceding 22 in return. Now sat second in the table, they also now hold the best attacking and defensive record in France’s top-tier. As for their recent run of form, Lille are currently unbeaten in their last six Ligue 1 matches, winning five of those contests.
