Next Saturday at 7:00pm GMT, on matchday 8 of the Ligue 1, we will see RCSA play Lille at the Stade de La Meinau.

This clash sees ninth placed RCSA, welcome fourteenth placed Lille to the Stade de La Meinau.

RC Strasburg’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 10 points this season

Can RCSA make it three out of three, having turned over RC Lens 0-1 and FC Metz 3-0 in their last two games?

That’s a run of two wins for RCSA. Their position is ninth in the League, and they have 10 points having won three fixtures, drawn one game, and lost three meetings.

RCSA have won two games, drawn one game, and lost one game of their four League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture, would take RC Strasburg’s points from 10 to 13, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

RCSA will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (11). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Habib Diallo (3), Ludovic Ajorque (3), and Adrien Thomasson (2). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with RCSA so far, having conceded 11 goals in their last matches so far.

RCSA’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Julien Stephan, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.

This season’s Ligue 1 campaign, has so far seen Lille achieve eight points

It was three points secured for Lille in their last fixture, beating Reims 2-1 at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.

They currently sit in fourteenth place, with a total of eight points having won two games, drawn two matches, and lost three fixtures.

Playing away from home, Lille have drawn two games and lost two meetings.

Winning this fixture will see Lille on 11 points.

Lille’s squad will likely be depleted of three of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
