Lyon resumed duties after the winter break by securing a routine 2-0 win over 5th tier Bourges at the weekend and that should boost their confidence ahead of this game.
Meanwhile, Strasbourg would consider this game a trickier one as they haven’t played any game since the turn of the new year.
Lyon’s failure to beat Montpellier just before the Christmas break has seen them remained in the 3rd position ahead of this round of fixtures.
There is a massive 15 points gap between them and runaway leaders PSG so their most realistic target at the moment is to finish inside the top four.
Lyon haven’t been perfect in their home games as they have won just two of their last four home games, and that explains why PSG have pulled far away from them this season.
Strasbourg are also struggling to play when they are not at home and this game is set to be another tough day at the office for them.
Lyon have a pleasing recent record against Strasbourg. Tuesday’s hosts have won four of the last five renewals, while they won by two goals to nil when the teams met in the league earlier this season.
