Lyon vs Strasbourg Prediction 5 August 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Parc Olympique Lyonnais
Match date: 05.08.2017 at 19:00

On August 5 2017 at 19:00 in the upcoming regular game of the first matchday of the French national elite division Ligue 1 at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais the local club with the same name plays against Strasbourg.

Lyon had a comparatively good previous season last year and this season they are starting a new chapter in the history of the club. In the previous season the Lions took the 4th place in the standings with 67 points gained and 77:48 goal difference. These results let Lyon make it to the group stage of the Europa League. As for the squad of the team, they have to start the season without one of their most important players who was bought by Arsenal from London.

Just a few years ago Strasburg took part in the third league of France. Yet, after they solved their financial problems, they got the new ambitions which let them make it to the national elite division this year. In the previous season Strasbourg took part in the Ligue 1 where they won 19 times, drew 10 times and lost 9 times with 21:30 goal difference which let them win the golden medals of the league.

The statistics of the matches played between Lyon and Strasbourg show the advantage of Lyon, obviously. Last time they met was in 2010 and Lyon won in that away match 1:3 in the national cup. Lyon look much stronger and they really need to divide their energy to be successful in all of the tournaments they take part in.
