Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade de la Meinau will host Saturday’s Ligue 1 game between Strasbourg and Clermont, the two teams with totally different ambitions in the season finale. Strasbourg are eyeing a spot in European competitions, while Clermont’s main goal is to secure the elite division survival. Both Nordin Kandil and Abdul Majeed Waris are injured for Le Racing, who are eyeing their 11th home win of the process.
The visitors, on the other hand, recorded a very important 2-1 win over Montpellier at the weekend to move on the cusp of avoiding relegation. Clermont, though, have already suffered ten defeats on the road this season, which is probably the main reason why we predict Strasbourg will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s showdown. Florent Ogier is back from suspension, while all Arthur Desmas, Jason Berthomier, and Cedric Houtondji have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away team.
Highlighted Player (Adrien Thomasson):
A midfielder with a keen eye for a precise pass, Adrian Thomasson is a French international who plays for Ligue 1 side Strasbourg. Thomasson is a versatile asset who can be equally deployed in a number of different positions up front, including a holding position at the centre of the park.
He began his professional career at Evian in 2012 and spent three years with Les Roses before moving to Nantes in 2015. One league match shy from entering the 100-game club, Adrien Thomasson scored nine goals for the Canaries before joining Strasbourg in the summer of 2018.
As a player who likes to hold on to the ball and build play from behind, Thomasson boasts impressive passing ability. Albeit an attacking midfielder who can play on both wings and in advanced midfield position, this French footballer also makes quite a contribution in defense.
