For the first game of these quarter-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue Lyon takes action only three days after the last match where they defeated Bourges Foot (2 nd level French football) by 2-0, ensuring the qualification for the next stage of the Coupe de France.
Lyon vs Strasbourg Today’s Football Prediction
This welcome to Strasbourg takes place in the midst of a series of several games in Lyon in a short time, even because the team of Bruno Genesio returns to work already on Friday, again at home against Reims, for the championship.
Championships where Lyon occupy the 3rd place to two points of Lille in the 2nd position and with advantage of two under Montpellier and Saint-Étienne.
Strasbourg have not competed since 22 December, when they received and beat Nice 2-0 to Ligue 1.
It was the team’s first win in four games without a win, although in the previous game they had celebrated their qualification in the Coupe de la Ligue, eliminating Marseille in the penalty shoot-out after a 1-1 draw at regular time.
The next game in Strasbourg is to count for Ligue 1, is scheduled for Sunday and will face Toulouse, out of doors.
In the championship, the team is making a good campaign, occupying the 7th place with the same 26 points of Rennes, Reims and Nice, but only one of Marseille.

Good game in perspective, in a “kills” between two teams with more quality in the offensive process than in the defensive. Both have met this season, in the first leg of Ligue 1 in August, with Lyon having beaten Strasbourg 2-0 at home.
This will be a reprint of this game, but in a different situation, even because Lyon should promote some rotation in the starting lineup, played for the Cup on Saturday, Friday returns to play for Ligue 1.
Since Strasbourg comes from two weeks without officially competing, it may come better prepared for the game, I believe it scores, but to play out against a weak Lyon defensively but with their virtues recognized at offensive level will hardly end without suffering in the same way.
Prediction of the Day: Both teams to score
