Les Coureurs welcome RC Lens to the Stade de la Meinau on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Strasbourg are chasing a first league double in this head to head since the 1996/97 season after winning the reverse fixture 0-1 back in September.

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

The Racers’ last league match, away to FC Lorient, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.4 in favour of Strasbourg indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match. Le Racing will be getting extra finishing sessions in this week having failed to score despite creating 1.3xG worth of chances. Jean-Ricner Bellegarde and Kevin Gameiro were particularly wasteful in front of goal, missing five of the Racers’ 13 shots between them including the game’s only two big chances.

Blood and Gold won their last league match at home to Clermont Foot. Expected goals of 1.8 to 1.1 in favour of Clermont Foot indicates Lens didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created.

Quantity over quality was the order of the day here as Lens came from behind to win after peppering the Clermont goal with 20 shots without creating a single big chance. The final score of the match was 3-1.

Arnaud Kalimuendo Muinga is RC Lens’s top scorer with seven goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.75/1 to score against RC Strasbourg Alsace on Sunday.
