Tip Lille Osc - Racing Strasbourg
A run of six matches unbeaten for Strasbourg has Lille among their victims after a 2 – 0 win in the League Cup in October and Lille, who have suffered back to back losses will want to get a measure of revenge, especially after their loss to league leaders PSG on Friday, left them nine points off and in third place on Ligue 1 standings. A first area of concern for Lille should be in defence as they have conceded in eight of their last 10 matches, though they have managed to score in seven. The lack of clean sheets is not an issue that will worry Lille alone, Strasbourg too have their own concerns, having managed just two in the last 12 matches. However, Strasbourg have scored in each of their last 10 matches ahead of this game. With three wins and as many draws in their last six matches, Strasbourg have the right impetus going to this game but they should be wary of this Lille side that has shown a lot of promise in the season. Lille are unbeaten at home in Ligue 1 this season, with six straight wins. They have not lost any of their last nine league matches at home, and eight of those are wins. Strasbourg do not have much to brag about in their away matches in Ligue 1; they have not won any of their last five and their only away win in Ligue 1 this season has come at Bordeaux. That win is their only victory in the last 16 Ligue 1 away matches. They have lost 10 in the process.
Key points Lille Osc - Racing Strasbourg

Lille have eight straight home wins in Ligue 1.
Strasbourg have one win in 16 away Ligue 1 matches.
Conclusion Lille Osc - Racing Strasbourg
Strasbourg have four wins in six matches against Lille and 10 in the 24 previous meetings between the two sides but going into Friday’s game, Lille are favorites, not just because of their higher placing on the table but with the dominant displays they have had at home in the season. In their last meeting in October, Strasbourg picked a 2 – 0 win in the League Cup clash but it will not be that easy at Lille’s backyard. Thrice in the last five matches, Lille have scored three goals at home in Ligue 1 and they have eight straight wins there in the league as well, scoring two or more in seven of the eight. On the flipside, Strasbourg have conceded two or more in three of their last five away matches in Ligue 1. A bet on Lille winning and over 2.5 goals would thus suffice here.
