STS Vs NIC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Strasbourg encounter a sordid start to life in the new season of Ligue 1.
Finding themselves slumped in 19th spot after gameweek 1, for Strasbourg, the 2020-21 edition of Ligue 1 couldn’t have gotten underway in worse fashion. They were razed to the ground by Lorient in a 3-1 defeat which saw Strasbourg being outshone in every facet of the game.
The result was the perfect testament to the side’s plight in the 2019-20 season. With the team’s defence offering little in the way of resistance, determination and resolve, the side ended up sitting in 10th place with three winless encounters seeing their foregone campaign draw to an end.
Where they slumped in form, Nice went from strength to strength. The club managed to completely overhaul its predicament from a majority of the season to transpire a string of wins, ones which placed them 3 points and more importantly the 5 places above Strasbourg to qualify for the Europa League.
The side brought that electric form into the new season as well with a pulsating 2-1 win over Lens throwing open the doors of their new season. It’s a win the side will be looking to build on, a result we see them extending into today’s clash and registering a second win on the bounce.
Probable Playing 11
- Both Sels and Lebo will sit out the forthcoming encounter owing to their ongoing injuries.
- Youcef, Hichem and Robson are all entrapped in injuries while Nice will also see all of Stanley, Danilo, Wylan and Maolida fail to make the cut for them today.

STS Vs NIC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Strasbourg are going to require Eiji Kawashima to thrust every bit of perseverance and valour he can into the impending showdown. With a leaky defence hardly offering any favours to him, the goal-keeper is set to be overworked as he consistently asked to bolster the team’s backline.
Fortunately for the side, he’s a well versed shot stopper, someone we envision accruing a bevy of saves from the day.
STS Vs NIC Dream11 Defenders
While we don’t envision either side keeping a cleansheet on the day, its Nice who have a clear edge. Not only are they the better endowed backline but are also set to control proceedings and determine how play unfolds today.
It sees us opt for an all Nice backline for the affair. A trio of picks from the club will represent our side, one made up of Hassane Kamara, Dante and Andy Pelmard.
STS Vs NIC Dream11 Midfielders
Performer of the day for Strasbourg in their league opener, Mehdi Chahiri couldn’t have done more. Not only did he pop up with the assist for the only goal his side had on the day but he was persistently quiessential in transitioning the ball from defence to attack and keeping play moving quickly in midfield.
Adrien Thomasson was not at his best the last time around but we envision him coming back to form for this one. The attacking midfielder is someone bestowed with a sprawling skill set, one which makes him a formidable player to take on for defenders.
With an assist in his side’s 2-1 win, Pierre Lees-Melou showed what he’s capable of. And when he takes on a defence which shipped up three goals the last time around, this could easily end up being a tie where he goes on a rampage.
Slotting in next to him is Morgan Schneiderlin to see us opt for a one-two of picks from the side as well.
STS Vs NIC Dream11 Strikers
Amine Gouiri scored both of Nice’s goal in the side’s first encounter of the season to make him a must have pick for us today. He are pairing him up with the electric and enigmatic Kasper Dolberg, a two names who are bound to school a paper thin home side setup.
The scorer of the only goal in his side’s 3-1 defeat the last time around, Ludovic Ajorque will be wrapping up our Dream 11 for the forthcoming showdown.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Scorer of two goals in match one, Amine will captain our side while Pierre is the vice-captain.
