Lille were dumped out of the Europa Conference League midweek on penalties but are still in the hunt for a Champions League spot. For Strasbourg, it looks set to be a season of safety and mid-table mediocrity, but could still look to claim a major scalp this weekend.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Lille expected to run riot at home

Draw: 14/5 (3.8) – 26.3%

Away: 19/4 (5.75) – 17.4%

Despite losing midweek, Lille have been in astonishing form domestically this season and that's not likely going to change at home on Sunday to a mid-table Strasbourg side. If you are on the same page as us, then avoid a dull outright winner market and instead flick through our free betting tips for the entire weekend.

The only way we'd be slightly tempted to back a Lille win this weekend would be with a -1 handicap. Even then, it may not be worth the risk for little returns, however, it could be an easy route to profit.

While these two sides are separated by 12 places in Ligue 1 this season, Strasbourg did record an impressive 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture. However, Lille had previously dominated this fixture winning three in a row, while keeping a clean sheet in each of those wins.

Lille preview: A win would boost Champions League hopes

While Lille could be vulnerable following their midweek heartbreak, their home form is way too good for them to not be clear favourites. Just the single home defeat back in September has blotched an almost perfect home campaign which is likely to continue this Sunday.

Predicted lineup: Chevalier (GK) – Ismaily, Alexsandro, Yoro, Santos – Andre, Bentaleb, Gomes – Cabella, David, Zhegrova

Strasbourg preview: Uptich in form has renewed optimism

A previous run of eight straight games without a victory had Strasbourg fans raging and the club hurtling towards the bottom three. However, Patrick Vieira has managed to turn things around by picking up 10 points from their last four matches and has them safe for another season.

Predicted lineup: Bellaarouch (GK) – Sow, Perrin, Sylla – Delaine, Sissoko, Santos, Guilbert – Ali Abdallah, Gameiro, Bakwa

Lille's Jonathan David

Player to watch: Jonathan David

Jonathan David has always been one of the finest finishers in France since he joined Lille back in 2020. Since making his debut, the Canadian international has netted 68 goals in Ligue 1 alone, so it's no surprise he's being hotly tipped to leave this summer.

Is David set for a brace?

David is Ligue 1's second tops corer this season – only behind Kylian Mbappe – with 17 goals and as of late he's found playing at home very comforting.

Lille's deadly striker has scored six goals in his last four matches, including a hat-trick and a brace, so in this vein of form, not many would be against him finding the back of the net multiple times.
