Les Coureurs welcome Paris Saint Germain to the Stade de la Meinau on Friday for this Ligue 1 match. Due to cup football and the cancelled Ligue 1 season due to the pandemic, this will only be the second home match for the Racers in seven in this head to head. Strasbourg have shipped four goals to PSG in each of the last three matches in this head to head.
RC Strasbourg Alsace come into the match on a run of seven home league games undefeated. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
The Racers lost their last league match away to LOSC Lille. Expected goals of 0.5 to 0.4 in favour of Strasbourg indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match. It was a match pretty devoid of attacking quality in truth which left both teams ripe for a sucker punch to snatch all three points. It was Lille who landed it to ensure Strasbourg went home with nothing. The final score of the match was 1-0.
Ludovic Ajorque failed to get a single shot on target here but remains RC Strasbourg Alsace’s top scorer with twelve goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 2.9/1 making him the most likely against Paris Saint Germain on Friday.
Their opponent on Friday, Paris Saint Germain, come into the match on a run of five league games undefeated. They have picked up 13 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
The Parisians shared the points in their last league match at home to RC Lens. Expected goals of 2.2 to 0.7 in favour of Paris Saint Germain indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match, especially facing an opponent with only ten men for over half an hour.
It was Lionel Messi's goal that proved enough to secure the point Paris Saint Germain needed to reclaim the league title from Lille. Messi now has four league goals this season for PSG and is 2.6/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

RC Strasbourg Alsace team news
Ismaël Doukouré (patella tendon irritation) will be unavailable for Les Coureurs due to injury on Friday. Suspension also rules out Lucas Perrin after his fifth yellow card of the season against Lille.
RC Strasbourg Alsace may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against LOSC Lille in their last league match. A recall to the starting XI for Habib Diallo would be the most likely option despite showing little in attack as a sub against Lille.
Paris Saint Germain team news
Injury will rule out Julian Draxler (knee injury) and Leandro Paredes (torn groin) for the trip to the Stade de la Meinau.
Paris Saint Germain may look to shuffle their deck voluntarily having drawn against RC Lens in their last league match. Although, Ángel Di María will have shown little in his 15-minute cameo to suggest he should be recalled to the starting lineup here.
