PSG vs Strasbourg Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A comfortable home win is the tip when PSG welcome Strasbourg to the Parc des Princes for a French Ligue 1 fixture on Sunday. The Parisians have a 100% record at home this season and a -1 handicap is recommended at odds of 1.90. A correct score tip of 3-0 is predicted at odds of 7.50.

Paris Saint-Germain FC Form & Team News


PSG progressed to the final of the Coupe de France on Wednesday after claiming a 3-0 victory over Nantes. Goals from Marco Verratti, Kylian Mbappe and Dani Alves earned them a comfortable win. Mbappe was also on target as the Parisians defeated Toulouse 1-0 in their previous Ligue 1 fixture.

Thomas Tuchel's men have suffered just one defeat this season and are 20 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1. They have a 100% record at the Parc des Princes and are short priced at 1.08 to win. A -2 handicap tip offers more value at 1.90 considering PSG’s recent dominant victories at home.

PSG will be without several attacking players with the likes of Julian Draxler and Angel Di Maria joining the injured list. Mbappe is expected to continue to lead the line for the hosts having scored 10 goals in his last 10 matches in Ligue 1.

RC Strasbourg Form & Team News


Strasbourg are coming off a 4-0 victory at home against Reims in their midweek Ligue 1 clash. Braces from Anthony Goncalves and Nuno Da Costa were enough to seal the win on Wednesday.

Thierry Laurey's men have been in poor form lately as Wednesday's triumph ended a run of eight matches without a Ligue 1 victory. They are also on a four-match winless run away from home and are backed at a massive 23.00 to beat PSG while a draw is valued at 12.00.

Lebo Mothiba is the top scorer for Strasbourg this season with eight goals but the striker has just one goal in his last 10 Ligue 1 matches. 

PSG vs Strasbourg Head-to-Head


PSG have a 20-4 advantage with five draws from 29 previous matches against Strasbourg. The Parisians have won five of the last seven meetings but were held to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at the Stade de la Meinau.

The Champions claimed a 2-0 victory over Strasbourg in the Coupe de France this season with Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria getting the goals.

PSG vs Strasbourg Match Up


Mbappe has shouldered the attacking responsibilities for PSG following injuries to several first team players. The striker has 10 goals in as many matches and his pace and directness should prove too much for the visitors to handle.

Mothiba has looked off colour for Strasbourg in recent weeks and is likely to find the PSG backline a difficult one to breach at the Parc des Princes.
