Racheté l’été dernier, Strasbourg n’a plus gagné depuis décembre en L1. La grogne monte.

An opponent who has not won in Ligue 1 in 2024, angry supporters, a change of system… hellip; If there had not been a change of coach, we could compare Strasbourg and Marseille.

Deprived of Angelo (pubs), Sylla (thigh), Sebas (knee), Sahi (recovery), Mothiba (knee) and Fila (knee), he only has ;a winger in his squad, Bakwa. What can be further review of the game diagram…
