As expected, PSG is heavily favored to defeat Strasbourg. That’s why our soccer expert picks are focused on the prop bets. Despite the five-point gap between the two, this is an interesting match. The league’s top scorer will be on the field and, regardless of the result, Strasbourg is used to putting up a good fight, especially at Parc des Princes.
PSG Winning All the Way
While PSG isn’t meeting expectations, we’re still talking about a powerful squad with plenty of talent to spare. Prior to the international break, the Parisians defeated Rennes 3-1. The first half finished 2-0.
As for their last match at home, they crushed Marseille 4-0, and let’s not forget that the Olympians are considered a title contender. The first half also finished 2-0.
In other words, I expect PSG to win at halftime and fulltime. Having an incredibly deep roster has a lot to do with that. Can you imagine being a defender and having to face Kylian Mbappe, Goncalo Ramos and Ousmane Dembele in the first half and later Randal Kolo Muani and Bradley Barcola in the second? That’s what Strasbourg’s defensive unit will face on Saturday.
Strasbourg is used to putting up a good fight, especially when these two collide in Paris. Last season, PSG suffered tremendously to win 2-1. In fact, Mbappe scored the winner in the 96th minute.
Only one of their last five encounters at Parc des Princes finished with a difference greater than two goals. Plus, Strasbourg managed to score in three of those last five meetings. Yes, PSG is expected to win and will win, but make sure to include both teams to score in the match – yes in your betting online ticket as well.
Kylian Mbappe Ready to Roll
The only reason for PSG to remain heavily favored in the Ligue 1 odds to win the Ligue 1 title, again, is Mbappe. After a rocky offseason, the 24-year-old striker decided to stay and currently is the league’s top scorer with seven goals. Needless to say, Mbappe is the way to go when it comes to anytime goalscorer.
There’s also Achraf Hakimi, who has scored three goals, including one against Rennes. The thing with Hakimi is that he plays as a right-back. The silver lining is that he’s offering a great price because of that.

As for the visitors, Lebo Mothiba is your best Ligue 1 betting option. Mothiba, who plays as a center-striker, is the team’s top scorer with two goals. He’s also in charge of taking penalties, which increases his chances of scoring tremendously. Same goes for Mbappe.

PSG vs Strasbourg Betting Predictions
There’s no doubt PSG vs Strasbourg is one of the best soccer matches for October 21 in Ligue 1. PSG is a victory away from the top spot, while Strasbourg will try to avoid a third straight defeat. Otherwise, they will fall closer to the relegation zone than the top 10. That’s the perfect recipe for an entertaining match. In the end, PSG will get the three points, but I do expect both to score and the total, which is set at three goals, to go over.
