Competition: Ligue 1
Market: PSG win and both teams to score
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
Desperate to widen their advantage at the top of the Ligue 1 table, PSG will travel to the Stade de la Meinau on Wednesday night in a matchup that historically produces plenty of goals.
Starting with the hosts, while Strasbourg did spend the majority of last season at the heart of a relegation scrap, it has been a much brighter start for Thierry Laurey’s side. Picking up a 4-1 win away to Rennes last weekend, Le Racing have lost just one of their last nine matches and will be eyeing up a surprise European push this campaign. While they may have lost the last two meetings against PSG across all competitions, conceding nine goals, Wednesday’s hosts do have pleasant memories when facing the defending champions at the Stade de la Meinau. Picking up a 2-1 win last December, Laurey will be looking for top goalscorer Lebo Mothiba to carry on his impressive start. The forward has six goals this season and is almost averaging a goal per game.
As for the visitors, coming off the back of a shock 2-2 draw with Bordeaux over the weekend, former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel will know the importance of bouncing back. Already holding a 14 point advantage at the top of the table, the defending champions are yet to be beaten in any of their opening 15 goals this season. Now scoring 48 goals this season, the Blues have also scored 14 goals in their last five league matches. In a star-studded squad, one man to watch for the visitors will be the world’s most expensive player and Brazil captain Neymar. The 26-year-old is Ligue 1’s leading goalscorer and has now found the net in his last three matches for PSG.
