Lille take on the visitors Strasbourg at the Grand Stade Lille Metropole in the 13th tour of the Ligue 1 Conforama. The match will be played in the eponymous city Lille on Friday, November 9th.
Lille have lost their two previous matches in a row. One of those losses was exactly from Strasbourg for them in the 1/16-finals fixture of the Coupe de la Ligue. Thereby Les Dogues are likely to be super motivated for their game against Le Racing in the Ligue 1 Conforama on Friday. The team of Christophe Galtier is on the third place in the table right now behind Montpellier after they lost to Paris Saint-Germain with a 1-2 score last tour. Talking about their fixture against Les Parisiens Lille looked pretty solid in the first half of that game and created a lot of goal attempts in it. That was some good stuff from Les Dogues considering that PSG had an incredible starting eleven in that game. The Squad of Les Rouges et Bleus is one of the best in the world at the moment. Lille showed quite a good playing style against them. Thereby the team of Christophe Gallier has all the tools needed to compete for the highest places in the Ligue 1 Conforama this season. In their last three matches Lille lost to Paris Saint-Germain with a 1-2 score, to Strasbourg with a 0-2 score in their 1/16-finals fixture of the Coupe de la Ligue and beat Caen with a 1-0 score.

Strasbourg have been looking really solid so far this Ligue 1 Conforama season. They are on the seventh place in the table with seventeen points to their credit after starting twelve tours. However, their weak place has been their away fields performances recently. Even though Le Racing have lost only twice on the away fields so far this season to Marseille and Lyon their overall performances there have been pretty bad. In their recent league match against Montpellier the team of Thierry Laurey has barely saved the draw for them on the last minutes of that game. It has been obvious that they have been struggling against the top tier French teams on the away fields recently. Thereby it is likely that Le Racing will lose to Lille on Friday. In their last three matches overall Strasbourg drew against Toulouse with a 1-1 score, beat Lille with a 2-0 score in their 1/16-finals fixture of the Coupe de la Ligue and drew against Guingamp with a 1-1 score. They have also had a friendly fixture recently where they have beaten Xamax with a 3-1 score.
Lille have been the best home team so far this Ligue 1 Conforama season except for Paris Saint-Germain. They have won all of their matches in front of their home crowd so far in the league. Thereby Les Dogues are likely to get the seventh victory at the Grand Stade Lille Metropole this season for them on Friday over Le Racing.
Prediction for the match: Lille to win.
