Strasbourg – Lille : Preview & Prediction
First relegation in the league, the LOSC may well propose a team redesigned at the Meinau, three days before welcoming the Alsatians in the North, this time on behalf of the 23rd day of Ligue 1. Dominated against Rennes (1-2 ) and Troyes (1-0) in their last two outings, the players of Christophe Galtier do not have the resources to go to the end in this Coupe de France while focusing on the objective maintenance. The SCR – tenth in Ligue 1 – is much more serene on a daily basis. Qualified thanks to a success against Dijon after extra time (3-2), Alsatians would enjoy this new encounter on their land to advance in a competition that suits them well. Punished at the RCS (defeat 3-0) early in the season under the leadership of Bielsa, Lille can he create a little sensation this Wednesday?
The LOSC fears for its future in L1 and will focus on receiving the RCS three days later, as part of the championship. Galtier should give playing time to his bench this Wednesday night.
