BT Sport, from 2pm Sunday

Lille v Strasbourg BT Sport ESPN, 2pm
Strasbourg have beaten Lille twice this season – 3-0 in a league match in August and 2-1 in the French Cup on Thursday – and look value to land the hat-trick.

Lowly Lille are in serious risk of relegation and can take nothing for granted against Strasbourg, who have won their last two games.

Recommendation
Strasbourg
1pt 13-5 general

Key stat
Lille have kept one clean sheet in their last nine home fixtures.
