Strasbourg – Lille : Preview & Prediction
Lille, 8th, made a difficult trip to Alsace to challenge Strasbourg, 9th 1 point behind. The LOSC is on a bad series since the formation of Christophe Galtier has lost its last 3 matches in Lyon (2-2, 3 tab 4) in the League Cup, in Paris (2-0) and on the lawn of Epinal (2-1) in the Coupe de France. This huge disappointment with this National 2 club confirms the state of crisis among the Mastiffs and the northern difficulties to impose themselves far from Pierre Mauroy. In Ligue 1, LOSC remains on 1 rout in Monaco (5-1) and on 1 failure in Dijon (1-0). Strasbourg, which has taken 18 points out of 21 at stake during the last 7 receptions in Ligue 1, will be a formidable opponent for Lille. The Alsatian club remains on 2 successes at home against Toulouse (4-2) and against St Etienne (2-1). The formation of Thierry Laurey, who has just been released from the Coupe de France by Marseille (3-1) this Wednesday evening, has nothing to be ashamed of this elimination as the quality of play proposed has been of good quality. The LOSC could pay the price for the Strasbourg reaction.
Lille have won only 4 times in their 18 trips this season.
