Lille looks to get back to winning ways against Strasbourg

Zeki Celik Lille vs Strasbourg Betting Odds Preview Ligue 1 France soccer

Having suffered a minor setback last time out in defeat at the hands of defending league champions PSG, Lille will be hoping to get back on track on Friday night when Strasbourg pays a visit. Their early game means that victory could lift Lille back up into second place – temporarily, at least – with Montpellier not playing until Saturday evening.

  • Lille has won all six of its most recent home games.
  • Strasbourg is unbeaten in its last five league outings.
  • Lille has won three of the last six meetings between these two teams.

Lille vs Strasbourg Game Center

Strong home form should see Lille safe

There is no denying that Lille has turned its Stade Pierre-Mauroy home into something of a fortress. The side has won six home games in a row and will be confident of stretching that run to seven contests this Friday when an in-form Strasbourg side comes to visit.

Lille had been PSG’s closest challenger until defeat at their hands last time out. Nevertheless, they remain third in the table with eight wins from 12 matches played so far.

Strasbourg, by way of comparison, has been climbing the table themselves of late. An unbeaten run of five matches has seen them climb up to seventh, just four points behind Lyon in fourth place.

But it is home side Lille that comes into this match as the red-hot favorite to take the points and end Strasbourg’s impressive run of form. You can back Lille to get back to winning ways at just -125, while Strasbourg is out at +333 to record what would be a hugely impressive victory on the road. A draw is priced in the middle at +260.

Lille to make short work of Strasbourg

Despite going five games unbeaten in the league, Strasbourg has actually only won two of those matches, and none against a side of the caliber of this Lille outfit. We are therefore expecting Lille to take the points with relative ease, and while it is never easy trying to predict the exact scoreline of any game, a 3-1 win for the home side is priced competitively at +1400.

That result would thus allow you to back OVER 2.5 goals in the game, which comes in at +100, as well as both teams to score, which is at the much shorter price of -125. To boost those winnings, then, start thinking about placing some combo bets, which allows you to select multiple outcomes at higher odds – leading, of course, to higher potential earnings.

For example, a Lille win coupled with both teams to score comes in at the higher price of +275, while a home win and OVER 2.5 goals in the game is at +187. You can also opt for a combo of both teams to score and OVER 2.5 goals in the game, which is priced at +130, while a total of OVER three goals in the match sees the odds rise steeply to +240.

Lille to make a fast start?

In their last away match in Ligue 1, a 1-1 draw at bottom club Guingamp, Strasbourg suffered the ignominy of going behind just six minutes into the game. They were able to salvage a point from the game but you get the feeling that if Lille get their noses in front early, then they could well run away with this game.

You can therefore back OVER 0.5 goals in the first 10 minutes at +333, with Lille at +700 to be in front by the end of that time period. An early goal could dampen the spirits of the visitors.

Lille should have this match under control from the off and you can back them to win to nil (without Strasbourg scoring a goal) at +200. The home side is at the much shorter price of -225 to win either half – which they should do with ease – while you can back them to score in both halves at +175 and actually win both halves at +400.

For Lille, a win would get them back on the right track and up into second. Expect Strasbourg’s unbeaten run to come to an end as the home side jumps back into second spot.
