|Ahead of this round 28 game both teams find themselves in the lower part of the Ligue 1 (L1) table and will be hoping to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone – just one point separates them.|
|In seven previous meetings at the Stade Michel-d’Ornano in L1 history, Caen have won five and the other two were drawn. Caen has proved to be an unhappy hunting ground for Strasbourg as they have never won a single clash in L1.|
|Currently on a bad run of three straight games without a win in the league, including a 2-0 loss to Dijon last weekend, Caen did at least show signs of promise after beating Lyon 1-0 in the quarterfinals of the Coupe de France in midweek.|
|Strasbourg sit 14th in the league and come into this game after two straight games without a win, including a 5-2 loss to league-leaders PSG and a goalless draw at home against Montpellier last Friday. To compound matters, Thierry Laurey’s side were also knocked out of the Coupe de France by third division side Chambly earlier this week (1-0).|
|Players to watch: Caen French striker Ronny Rodelin has been directly involved in 45% of his team’s 20 goals. He has a record of five goals and four assists in L1 so far this season.|
|Rodelin will go head-to-head with Strasbourg’s top scorer Jean-Eudes Aholou who has five goals this season – including two goals in his last three matches.|
|Stat attack: Caen haven’t lost any of their last six fixtures against Strasbourg in all competitions (W2, D4, L0) and have drawn the last three on the bounce. With only 20 goals scored in 27 L1 matches, Caen have the worst total goals tally in the league.|
|Strasbourg are on a run of four straight away league losses, conceding at least two goals in each of these. With 29 goals conceded in 13 away L1 matches, Strasbourg have the second-worst away defence in the championship.|
