Lille have enjoyed a really impressive season but are now fighting on just one front after their UEFA Europa Conference League elimination at the hands of Aston Villa in midweek. The northerners were the better side over both legs for the most part but after a 3-3 aggregate draw they suffered 4-3 defeat in the penalty shootout of their quarter-final tie.

Under the management of former Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca, Lille have played an excellent, easy on the eye and progressive style of football throughout the campaign which has been balanced with a cohesive defensive line-up that has produced over 20 clean sheets across all competitions.


Much like Lorient, Strasbourg have been a Ligue 1 side at the centre of off-field supporter protests against an American-led takeover. The famous Alsace-based outfit have become a feeder club to Premier League side Chelsea and performances have remained underwhelming throughout the campaign following the appointment of Patrick Vieira last summer.

The visitors do, though, come into this one on the back of an improvement in their form of late. They came from behind last weekend to defeat Stade de Reims by three goals to one with Kevin Gameiro, Abakar Sylla and Moise Sahi overturning Keito Nakamura’s opener. That means they have collected ten points from their last four matches in Ligue 1.



Paulo Fonseca will be without key midfielder Nabil Bentaleb as he is out suspended. Both Samuel Umtiti and Raphael Fernandes are also missing with injuries.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Chevalier; Santos, Yoro, Alexsandro, Gudmundsson; Gomes, Ounas; Yazici, Haraldsson, Zhegrova; David

UNAVAILABLE: Bentaleb (Suspended), Fernandes (Injured), Umtiti (Injured)



Matthieu Dreyer is out suspended for Strasbourg this weekend with the likes of Lebo Mothiba, Emanuel Emegha and Angelo Gabriel unavailable due to injury.

PREDICTED XI (3-4-2-1): Bellaarouch; Guilbert, Perrin, Sow; Senaya, Santos, Sissoko, Delaine; Bakwa, Diarra; Gameiro

UNAVAILABLE: Dreyer (Suspended), Emegha (Injured), Angelo Gabriel (Injured), Mothiba (Injured)



This one really could well be a one-sided affair. If Lille are anywhere near their performance level in both legs against Aston Villa in their UEFA Europa Conference League quarter-final tie then they should comfortably defeat Strasbourg. The visitors are going to eventually finish in the middle-of-the-table but they have been really underwhelming. Lille’s impressive defence and home advantage makes them firm favourites as they aim for a top three finish and UEFA Champions League qualification.
