The Ligue 1 returns with another round of fixtures this weekend as Lyon take on Strasbourg at the Stade de la Meinau on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent so far this season and are in desperate need of a victory.

Lyon have performed well below their full capacity this season and have managed only seven points in their six games. The away side is currently in 14th place in the Ligue 1 table and has an excellent opportunity to move up the table this weekend.

Strasbourg are dangerously close to the bottom of the table at the moment and have lost four of their last five games. The home side has won only one match so far and will have to improve against a strong Lyon side.

Strasbourg vs Lyon Head-to-Head

Lyon have a predictably excellent record against Strasbourg in the Ligue 1 and have won seven games out of a total of 11 matches played between the two sides. Strasbourg have won only two games against Lyon and will likely take a defensive approach to this game.

The previous meeting between these two sides last year resulted in a 2-1 victory for Lyon. The away side has a potent forward line and has the upper hand going into this game.

Strasbourg vs Lyon Predicted XI

Strasbourg Predicted XI (4-3-1-2): Bingourou Kamara; Anthony Caci, Alexander Djiku, Mohamed Simakan, Kenny Lala; Ibrahima Sissoko, Jean Eudes Aholou, Jean-Ricner Bellegarde; Adrien Thomasson; Ludovic Ajorque, Habib Diallo

Lyon Predicted XI (4-3-3): Anthony Lopes; Sinaly Diomande, Jason Denayer, Marcelo, Leo Dubois; Maxence Caqueret, Thiago Mendes, Houssem Aouar; Moussa Dembele, Memphis Depay, Maxwel Cornet

Strasbourg vs Lyon Prediction

Lyon have a powerful squad and the likes of Memphis Depay and Houssem Aouar should be able to guide their side across the finish line. The away side has not been at its best in the past few weeks and Rudi Garcia will want his team to turn the season around.

Strasbourg have a new forward threat in Habib Diallo and will hope that the striker can inspire his side to a victory on Sunday. Lyon have a well-rounded squad, however, and are the favourites to win this game.

Prediction: Strasbourg 0-2 Lyon
