Ligue 1 2021/22: Strasbourg’s impressive season so far

Strasbourg are fourth in the 2021/22 Ligue 1 table, only one point behind third place Nice and five points behind second placed Marseille. They have a four point lead over fifth placed Rennes and are well on course to finish in a Champions League spot. This is after Strasbourg finished 15th in the league last season. They are currently only one point behind their last season tally of 42 points.

The following visualisation shows Strasbourg’s rankings in the league for some of the key metrics. Data was collected after 24 matchweeks.

Strasbourg’s biggest strength this season has been their goal scoring. With 46 goals in the league, they are the second best for goals scored only behind table toppers PSG (52 goals). At the opposite end, conceding 29 goals, Strasbourg rank above average for goals conceded as well, ranking 8th in the league. One of the metrics that Strasbourg ranks in the bottom half is for Average Possession. With only 48.5% average possession in the league, they rank 12th in that metric.

Strasbourg have impressed and attracted a lot of people’s attention this season. After a below average start to the campaign, they have shown some level of consistency to gradually climb up the table. If they are to continue this form and finish in a European spot, it will be one of the most amazing stories in recent times.
