Ligue 1 Tips: Strasbourg to continue the fight for top-three spot
After five winning tips from his last seven selections on French football, James Eastham looks at the latest round of games taking place this weekend...
High goals the smart selection
Bordeaux have been involved in high-scoring games all season. With 79 goals conceded in their 33 games to date, they have one of Ligue 1's worst defensive records of all time. Twenty two of their 33 games (67%) have had Over 2.5 Goals (the division's highest tally), with 17 out of 33 (52%) having Over 3.5 Goals (also the division's highest tally).
Motivation gives Strasbourg the edge
Strasbourg are locked in the battle for a Champions League spot and took another step towards securing a top-three spot for when they beat direct rivals Rennes 2-1 in midweek. Strasbourg head into this game on an 11-match unbeaten run (W5-D6-L0) and should be able to field their strongest starting line-up, too.
