2-1

Lyon enter this match in great form, with five wins in a row and 10 wins in their last 12 games in all competitions. On the other hand, Strasbourg have struggled lately, at least in Ligue 1, where they've lost four matches in a row.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Lyon clearly the favourites

  • HOME: 17/20 (1.85) – 54.10%
  • DRAW: 11/4 (3.75) – 26.70%
  • AWAY: 17/5 (4.40) – 22.70%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

As expected looking at their current forms, the bookies see Lyon as the expected winners in this game and we were frankly a bit surprised to see that they aren't even bigger favourites.

Team news and form guide

Lyon: Can a cup run secure Europe for Lyon?

Despite their great run recently, which we covered in our Ligue 1 predictions, their results earlier in the season pretty much put Lyon out of contention for a place in European competitions in Ligue 1. So, their best chance to achieve this is to win Coupe de France and given their current form, Lyon has every reaosn to hope. Meanwhile, Johann Lepenant, Corentin Tolisso, and Henrique are out with injuries.

Strasbourg: Looking for an upset to get to the semi-finals

While Strasbourg eliminated a couple of Ligue 1 teams to get to the quarter-finals in Coupe de France, such as Le Havre and Clermont, their upcoming duel with Lyon will certainly be their toughest test yet, especially given their current form and a four-game losing streak in the league. When it comes to team news, Lebo Mothiba, Moise Sahi, and Jeremy Sebas are on Stasbourg's injury list.
