Strasbourg – Lille: Preview & Prediction
This Sunday, the stadium of the Meinau will tremble with the reception of Lille. The Alsatians, promoted in Ligue 1, suffered during the first day, so they will have to react at home.
Before sinking in 2009, Strasbourg was thus in Ligue 1 and at that time, the Lillois had won a victory in Alsace, on the score of 1 goal to 0.
Lille can therefore go for a performance at the Meinau, especially as the Strasburgers have just sank in Lyon, a 4-0 defeat. They performed well on the preparation matches, but only in front of Ligue 2 teams.
Strasbourg did not make great recruitments in the offseason, but the Alsatians recorded the signatures of Benjamin Corgnet, Jonas Martin or Pablo Martinez.
Strasbourg will be under pressure against the Lille, especially as the protégés of Thierry Laurey will move 3 times over the next 4 days, in Montpellier, Guingamp and Monaco.
Strasbourg will therefore already be under pressure, especially as Lille seems to be on a new dynamic with the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa. The Argentinian technician has given breath to the North with the arrival of many players this summer.
With Pépé, Malcuit, Luiz Araujo, Thiago Mendes and Ezequiel Ponce of Granada, the LOSC can look forward to some great things in this French Championship.
Moreover, during the first day of the Ligue 1, Lille easily won in front of FC Nantes, 3 goals to 0 (De Preville, El Ghazi and Alonso). The LOSC confirmed its good victory obtained in friendly against Rennes (4-2), in the final game of preparation.
Lille can therefore envisage a performance in Alsace and why not imagine a victory of the Lille. The “wizard” Bielsa is in place!
