Latest performances in all competitions
Strasbourg welcome Lille to the Stade de la Meinau as they lock horns in yet another round of the French Ligue 1.
Julen Stephan’s side secured their first win of the season with a 2-3 victory over Angers last weekend. Goals from Kévin Gameiro, Habib Diallo and an own goal from Miha Blazic were enough to give the French man his first win of the season, despite the home side getting two goals of their own through Adrien Hunou and Miha Blazic.
The French coach will be keen to see his side keep the stride and secure their second win of the League season when they take on Lille.
However, the game against Paulo Fonseca’s side has yielded just one draw and four defeats for the home side in their last five meetings. This game, therefore, represents just more than another three points for Julen Stephan and his boys.
Possible Strasbourg starting line-up
Matz Sels; Lucas Perrin, Alexander Djiku, Gerzino Nyamsi; Anthony Caci, Adrien Thomasson, J. Bellegarde, Sanjin Prcic, Frederic Guilbert; Kevin Gameiro, Ludovic Ajorque.
Injured: Nordine Kandil, Lebo Mothiba, Ludovic Ajorque
Lille on the other hand will be chasing their sixth win of the season and their second in consecutive matches.
Paulo Fonseca’s side secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over Lens last weekend, and the 2020 Ligue 1 champions will be looking to secure yet another crystal three points against Julen Stephan’s side.
Lille sit in seventh place in the Ligue 1 tables after nine rounds of football, five points off the Champions League berths.
Lille come into this game as the better team out of the two teams, but for them to keep their Champions League qualifications alive, Les Dogues will be keen to pick up another three points as they chase the top four.
Possible Lille starting line-up
Lucas Chevalier; Akim Zedadka, Jose Fonte, Taigo Djalo, Ismaily; Benjamin André, Andre Gomes; Jonathan Bamba, Jonathan Bamba, Remy Cabella; Jonathan David.
Suspended: Angel Gomes, Bafode Diakite
Strasbourg 1-3 Lille
