Paris vs Strasbourg

RC Strasbourg in short

Founded in 1906 as FC Neudorf, Racing Club Strasbourg Alsace played their first competitive matches in the German league in 1909 and won their first trophy in 1952: the French Cup. Their glory years came in the 1970s, when they won their sole French league title, in 1979, and went on to reach the quarter-finals of the European Cup the following season, before losing to an Ajax Amsterdam side featuring a young Frank Rijkaard.

Relegated on several occasions in the 2000s, Racing found themselves in the CFA2 (the fifth tier of French football at the time) in the 2011/12 season. Climbing their way back up through the leagues in the years that followed, they made their return to Ligue 1 Uber Eats in 2016/17.

The club ended the 2019-20 campaign at 10th place, just ahead of Angers and Bordeaux. In addition to that one league championship triumph, Racing have won three Ligue 2 BKT titles, three French Cup and two League Cup.

The last trophy won by the club is a League Cup in 2019 against Guingamp.
