Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 2-1 win over Rennes Strasbourg put an end to their four-game winless run in Ligue 1, but they have yet to escape the danger zone. Le Racing are level on points with Nice, who sit in bottom three, but, no doubt, the win over Rennes gave them a confidence boost. Strasbourg are tough to beat at home and they scored two goals in each of their previous three home games in the national championship. Caen, on the other hand, did well to beat Bordeaux in their last league match and thanks to the triumph they regained sixth position in the standings. Le Racing have a number of injury worries ahead of Tuesday’s football game against Caen, but seeing that Patrice Garande’s men struggle on the travels, we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils at Stade de la Meinau.
Highligted Player (Alexandre Oukidja):
Alexandre Oukidja is a French goalkeeper who began his professional career at Gueugnon. Nonetheless, he made no more than 1 appearance for the club and in 2006 he signed a contract with Ligue 1 club Lille. The shoot-stopper, who was born in Nevers (France) on July 19, 1988, though, did not make his first-team debut for les Dogues and it has to be noted that he played 84 games for Lille B. After ending his loan spells with Aviron Bayonnais and Royal Mouscron-Peruwelz respectively, Alexandre Oukidja joined Strasbourg in 2014 and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the French elite division at the end of the 2016/2017 season. Oukidja made no less than 12 clean sheets for le Racing in the 2016/2017 Ligue 2 campaign and it is more than obvious that he has established himself as a first-choice shoot-stopper at the club. It has to be noted that his contract with Strasbourg expires on June 30, 2018.
Highlighted Team (Caen):
Caen are a French football club that compete in Ligue 1. Caen were founded in 1913 under the name of The Stade Malherbe Caennais and back then Stade de Venoix was the club’s home ground. Nowadays SMC play their home games at Stade Michel d’Ornano and the capacity of the venue is 20.453. Caen finished the 1991/1992 Ligue 1 campaign in fifth position in the standings, 14 points behind champions Marseille and that is considered the club’s best result in the French top flight. In 2005 Caen made it to the Coupe de la Ligue final, but Strasbourg proved to be a big catch for Patrick Remy’s troops. The Stade Michel d’Ornano outfit play their home games in red shirts with blue stripes (vertical), while gray and black are their away colours. Nicolas Seube is the club’s most capped player and it has to be noted that he made no less than 477 appearances for SMC during his spell with the club.
