Match preview

In ninth place ahead of this round, Strasbourg host a troubled Caen side having lost only one of their last six Ligue 1 (L1) home outings (W3, D2, L1).
The ‘Strasbourgeois’ come into this clash on the back of a great home performance, having held league leaders PSG to a draw (1-1) in midweek. Interestingly, the hosts have lost only one of their last nine L1 fixtures (W3, D5, L1), albeit registering only two clean sheets in the process.
Caen are on a slippery slope ahead of this match, and have failed to win any of their last eight L1 fixtures (D3, L5). The visitors travel here trying to put an end to their recent five-game winless streak on the road (D2, L3), recording just one victory from their last 17 L1 away trips (W1, D5, L11).
On top of this, they have recorded the lowest average number of shots on target (two) per away match, thus failing to score in three of their last four L1 fixtures on the road. It should be noted, though, that Caen’s last five L1 games have seen them alternate losses and draws, with the visitors losing last time out.
Players to watch: Strasbourg’s top scorer, Lebo Mothiba, has scored seven goals and provided one assist in L1 so far. He will face off against Caen striker Claudio Beauvue, who has three goals in L1, all scored in the second half.
Stat attack: Strasbourg have the lowest amount of shot attempts at home in the league (83), averaging 10.38 per game.
With five goals scored in eight away games, Caen have the third-worst away offensive record in the league.
Strasbourg have been awarded the second-lowest number of corners per home game in L1 so far, averaging 3.75 a game.
