There will be an important fixture at opposite ends of the standings on Saturday, as Strasbourg and PSG clash. The hosts need one more point to mathematically ensure their survival this term, while PSG need a point to secure the top-flight title.
Ligue 1 Preview
PSG can secure their top-flight title this weekend, as they require just a point to mathematically see off Lens. The Parisians have been in fine recent form, as they have landed victories in each of their previous three matches. PSG put themselves on the verge of the league title last week, as they landed a 2-1 win on the road against Auxerre. Kylian Mbappe was the standout star in that fixture, as he netted twice inside the opening ten minutes.
Despite struggles this season, PSG have already picked up 84 points after 36 rounds of fixtures. Only four previous champions have registered more points at this stage of the season, and they could claim a record-setting eleventh title with a positive result this weekend.
Strasbourg will also be playing for important points this weekend, as they require just one more point to secure their top-flight status in the league. They already look on course to achieve that target, as they sit six points clear of the drop zone with a superior goal difference over all the sides located below them.
Their recent form is also fairly encouraging, as they have won three of their last five matches, and have gone three without defeat coming into this fixture. Strasbourg’s home form has been a crucial advantage in recent months, as they have won five of their previous seven.
Strasbourg vs PSG Head to Head
Strasbourg has claimed just two wins in 30 previous league clashes against PSG. Their most recent win was a home success in December 2017. At home, Strasbourg has lost two of their last eight matches against PSG, with four matches over that period ending in draws.
Strasbourg vs PSG Prediction
The home record of Strasbourg deserves a lot of respect coming into this fixture, but it’s incredibly challenging to overlook the form that PSG have been in over recent weeks. But, both teams need a point, meaning that a draw could be a good outcome for both.
