PSG VS STRASBOURG PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Paris SG has many advantages when playing at home Parc des Princes. So the home team is highly appreciated for a win.
PSG’s form in the last 5 matches: W W D L W
Only finishing in 2nd place last season made Paris SG unable to successfully defend their throne. Therefore, they are very determined to take the throne this season. But with what Paris SG showed in round 1, the former champion is being questioned by a big question mark for determination. Coming to be a guest of Troyes, the rich man from France was much appreciated. However, it was very difficult for Paris SG to win 2-1.
Although not the most optimal squad, Paris SG still owns a better team of players than the home team. If they keep playing like that, they can hardly earn more victories. Notably, this victory helped coach Mauricio Pochettino’s students cut off a series of 2 draws and losses. Calculating the last 5 matches played, this team’s win rate is 60%.
Strasbourg’s form in the last 5 matches: D W W L L
Strasbourg is receiving a lot of skepticism after what they have shown in recent times. Looking at 4 pre-season friendlies, Strasbourg has 2 wins but also 2 defeats. So that preparation was not appreciated at all. Notably, up to now, Strasbourg still has 3 consecutive defeats. One of them is the opening match in Ligue 1 recently.
Holding the home advantage of the Stade de la Meinau to welcome Angers, Le Racing could not get any points. They had to receive a 0-2 defeat in the end. It is worth mentioning that Strasbourg still accepted half a goal, so they lost this match. Entering the trip to the Parc des Princes to come here, teachers and students Julien Stéphan are underrated.
Select: PSG FT.
Confrontation history is leaning in favor of Paris SG. After 35 encounters from 1993 until now, Paris SG has beaten Strasbourg 24 times. In addition, there were 7 more matches where the two teams drew. So what Strasbourg can do is only 4 victories.
The last time Strasbourg could earn themselves a victory came from the first leg of Ligue 1 2017/18. Right after that was a series of 8 consecutive unbeaten matches for Paris SG. With the first leg last season, Paris SG won 4-0 at home.

In order for rookie Troyes to concede first in round 1, Paris SG still has a lot of work to do to improve the defense system. It was also the 5th goal that the former Ligue 1 king had to receive after the last 5 matches. Meanwhile, the attack still plays effectively with 7 goals.
Strasbourg’s defense can hardly stand the attack that PSG brings in the next match. Looking at the last 5 matches played, Strasbourg has received 8 goals. On average, they conceded 1.6 times a game. On the contrary, the attack opened fire a total of 6 times.
With Over/Under 3.25, the last 5 matches of Paris SG have won Under 4 times, corresponding to a rate of 80%. On the Strasbourg side, Under won 4 times in the last 5 matches they attended.
