Lyon vs Strasbourg Prediction, Betting Odds and Free Tips (12/10/2021)

Lyon to win the match

Lyon is the bookies' favourite to win this game. On our part, we think they stand a chance not because the bookies say so but because they are the better side in a struggling matchup. Both sides have kicked off the new season on a low note but home advantage should inspire the hosts to bag their second victory of the season. Also, note that Lyon defeated Strasbourg twice last season and haven’t lost to the visitors in the last five meetings.

Lyon to score first

With the arrival of Xherdan Shaqiri, Lyon should start playing an attacking game. The right-wing will especially be instrumental in their exploits on matchday. Shaqiri is a fast player who should combine forces with the attacking front to score the first goal against the struggling Strasbourg on matchday.

Lyon to win first-half

Lyon is also our favourite to go ahead at the break. The hosts should come back stronger after the international break. Moreover, building on away victory at FC Nantes before the international break should be the main focus for head coach Peter Bosz. Lyon boasts 14W and 2D in eight previous meetings with Strasbourg.

Match Preview: Expected Lineups, Team News and More

We are expecting a tense game after the international break when Lyon hosts Strasbourg for the fifth game of the season. Both sides have recorded only one victory. Here is how these teams are expected to be the lineup for the big game.

Olympic Lyonnais

Lyon is expected to field Anthony Lopes between the sticks. The defence will likely feature Leo Duboi, Jason Denayer, Sinaly Diomande and Emerson Palmieri. Thiago Mendes, Maxence Caqueret, Houssen Aouar and Karl Toko Ekambi are expected to start in midfield. Former Liverpool winger and Swiss international, Xherdan Shaqiri is also expected to start. At the front, Moussa Dembele is the favourite to lead the attack if head coach Peter Bosz opts for a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg failed to defeat Lyon last season but with only one victory in four matches, we expect the visitors to equally field a strong starting eleven. Goalkeeper Matz Sels is expected to start alongside defenders, Dimitri Lienard, Anthony Caci, Lucas Perrin, Alexander Djiku and Karol Fila. Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, Jean-Eudes Aholou and Adrien Thomasson are in contention for midfield. Kevin Gameiro and Ludovic Ajorque are currently the favourites to lead the attacking front in a possible 5-3-2 formation.
