With only two rounds remaining of the current Ligue 1 campaign, a few things are about to fall into place, when Strasbourg welcome PSG at Stade de la Meinau.
Sitting top of the table, PSG claimed 84 points after 36 rounds, while Strasbourg have amassed 39 points. This ranks the latter as number 15 in the Ligue 1 before the next round.
PSG are hugely favoured to knock out Strasbourg from this competition. The latter will obviously put up a fight this coming Saturday but an away win still seem the most likely scenario.
Strasbourg step into their next home match this coming Saturday having scored a nice average of 1.9 goals in ten matches. They managed a total of 19 goals, while also allowing 12 goals against. That is an average of 1.2 goals against per match. They were able to hang on to a clean sheet four times in those matches.
PSG scored an average of two goals in ten matches for a total of 20 goals. They also conceded 11 goals or an average of 1.1 per game, as they managed two clean sheets.
The last time the pair played each other PSG came away as 2-1 winners, and rest assured they have a similar outcome in mind this coming Saturday.
Strasbourg vs PSG Prediction
Strasbourg look well suited to take on any opponent presently, as their last 3 matches saw them gain 7 points. They ran out 0-2 and 2-0 against Nantes and Nice respectively. Their winning streak came to an end against Troyes, who claimed a point in a 1-1 draw. Strasbourg managed a strong return of four wins from their previous six matches on home soil in the Ligue 1. They drew none though, while losing twice in this series. They scored ten goals and conceded five times.
PSG look fabulous with three wins on the trot, starting off against Troyes, who were defeated by 1-3. Then, AC Ajaccio got outclassed in a 5-0 win, before beating Auxerre by 1-2. PSG collected a maximum six wins in their previous six away matches in the Ligue 1, which no away team naturally currently does better. They outscored their opponents by 14 goals to four along the way.
Head-to-head encounters tend to bring out the best in both sides, when it comes to goals. We see no reason for this trend to end here, and we expect an entertaining match once again between Strasbourg and PSG.
PSG won 11 of their previous 11 encounters with opponents from the bottom six of the Ligue 1. They scored 35 and conceded nine goals and collected 33 points.
