Strasbourg vs Lille – Coupe de France : On the only match this Thursday in France, counting towards the Coupe de France’s 16th finals
The local side Strasbourg and the visiting side Lille face off in the city of Strasbourg, at the Stade de la Meinau, on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season, after the Ligue 1 match where Strasbourg won comfortably by 3-0 at home.
The home side is making a very positive campaign so far, being on an excellent 12th place of Ligue 1, although they haven’t secured their spot in Ligue 1 for next season, but they have a clear advantage over the relegation zone at the moment.
The team is also making a positive run in the Cups, only being knocked out from the League Cup by leaders PSG, last month, and having an excellent opportunity here in the French Cup to brighten up their already great season.
The team is coming off a win in the league, after a less positive streak of results, where they’ve gone 3 matches without a single win.
As for the visiting side, they are making a season well below the expectations, only being on the fight to avoid relegation in Ligue 1, having already fired the manager they had at the start of the season, and being able to recover in the past couple of weeks from their poor initial spell.
The team, after a better period, like I’ve said, is now coming off 2 losses, against Rennes and Troyes.
Strasbourg vs Lille – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a knock-out match and on an encounter that can be, in a certain way, the season’s salvation for Lille or even Strasbourg, I believe we’ll have a close match without many action in terms of goals from both teams.
