Strasbourg take on the visitors Lille at “Stade de la Meinau” in the gameweek two of France’s Ligue 1. The match will be played in Strasbourg on Sunday, August 13th.
Strasbourg have had a strong finish of the last season with 10-clash unbeaten run, 67 points gained and 63-47 goal difference allowing the club to become the champion of the French Ligue 2. In addition to those ten encounters the team has lost not a single time in six friendly matches during the summer break which resulted in the side’s undefeated streak has reached 10 wins and six draws and has been lasting since the 6th of March till the 5th of August. And it was the 5th of August when the new season of the Ligue 1 started and Strasbourg was thrashed 0:4 by Lyon on the road in the first gameweek. This is what the difference between the Ligue 1 and the Ligue 2 in France is.

Last season Lille occupied only the 11th place in the Ligue 1 resulting in the team’s staying beyond the Eurocups this season. During the summer “Les Dogues” have radically enforced the squad which enabled the side to enter the new season with 3:0 victory over Nantes, having demonstrated perfect play in defense and shown excellent effectiveness in offense.
Taking into account the last 10-15 years, the advantage in Strasbourg and Lille head-to-heads is on the latter side. In regards to the upcoming fight, the visiting team also looks to be the favourite as it has stronger and more experienced squad playing on a higher level. I believe that the visitors will take points.
Prediction for the match: Lille to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
