Match Preview

Les Coureurs welcome Olympique Lyonnais to the Stade de la Meinau on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Lyon have won each of the last three in this head to head and are undefeated in six, in all competitions. This includes a 3-1 win in the reverse fixture back in September in Lyon.

RC Strasbourg Alsace come into the match on a run of eight league games undefeated and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four at home. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Racers won their last league match at home to RC Lens. Expected goals of 2.7 to 1.2 in favour of Strasbourg indicates it was likely a fair result. It was a tale of two penalties for Strasbourg with Ludovic Ajorque stepping up to score midway through the second half. Kevin Gameiro volunteered when they got another just minutes later but saw his effort saved. Thankfully, the second goal wasn’t needed as the final score of the match was 1-0.

Ludovic Ajorque extended his lead by one as RC Strasbourg Alsace’s top scorer with eleven goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 2.8/1 favourite to score against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais, come into the match on a run of three away league games undefeated. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Kids won their last league match at home to SCO Angers. Expected goals of 1.7 to 1.6 in favour of Angers indicates Lyon didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. Les Gones's Moussa Dembele was in good form as he scored a brace of goals against Angers. He could have had a hat trick but for a big miss just minutes before Tetê’s winner 10 minutes from time. Dembele now has 12 goals this season in the league for Lyon and is 2.625/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 3-2.
