RC Strasbourg Alsace quickly rose through the ranks in this decade after a few unfortunate years in the 3rd flight of French football. However, since they arrived in Ligue 1, they are yet to make it to the upper half of the standings. This marks them as underdogs, though they finished in a relatively reasonable 11th place for two consecutive seasons now.
As such, most Ligue 1 betting predictions are anticipating another middle-low placement. As expected, the Top 3 Finish betting odds are a hefty 26.00. On the flip side, it would take a disaster to get them anywhere near the relegation zone. Considering coach Laurey did not make any notable changes to the lineup or general approach, we don’t expect any surprises from Les Coureurs one way or another.
Strasbourg Key Players
The changes to Strasbourg’s roster this year have been minimal. A few loans ended bringing some of the less-seen players back into the fold, and Porto’s centre-forward Majeed Waris has been signed on – though he spent the previous season on loan anyway.
Strasbourg are noted for their defensive approach focusing on counterattacks. With that in mind, their backs are a key part of the lineup – players like Mohamed Simakan and Kenny Lala are responsible for a good chunk of the goals Strasbourg scores. Their tactics also often rely on maintaining control of the midfield, utilizing players such as Jean-Ricner Bellegarde and Ibrahima Sissoko to always stay on top of the opposition and keep up the pressure.
Le Racing are a club without prominent rivalries in the top-flight. They have been going in and out of Ligue 1 for most of their existence and are not considered a top club in France. Therefore, none of the major French sides such as PSG, Lyon or Lille consider them rivals.
The Derby de l’Est between FC Metz and RC Strasbourg is the only Ligue 1 rivalry Le Racing are part of. Both clubs are situated in eastern France and hence the geographical connection in terms of football. Matches between Metz and Strasbourg generate plenty of attention, locally, but are far off from being of the same stature as other most prominent rivalries.
Moreover, when it comes to more local animosities, Vauban Strasbourg could be considered a rival. Matches with the Championnat National 3 do not occur that often and have no emotional importance for RC Strasbourg fans.
Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace was founded in 1906. Despite its long history, Strasbourg never quite managed to establish itself as one of France’s leading football clubs. Interestingly enough, despite being one six French clubs to have won all three major trophies in the country – league title, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue – Strasbourg would get relegated once every ten years since the 1950s.
Historically speaking, the club has had a troublesome history. It changed nationality three times – much like the region of Alsace – and even went through total liquidation, in 2011. The FFF decided to reinstate the club into the fifth division of French football and Strasbourg’s rise back to prominence began. Today, RC Strasbourg are in search of stability and will be determined to put the problematic past behind them.
