Reims vs Lyon Match Preview
Lyon travel to Reims just days after hosting Toulouse for their League Cup clash midway through the week as the busy schedule continues and Rudi Garcia’s men have to find a quick fix after a disappointing 0-1 loss to Rennes now behind them, where they failed to build on high team spirits after making it to the Champions League knockout stages with a 2-2 home draw against RB Leipzig.
Les Gones have been scoring goals on the road and will have high hopes they can build on such records here, having beaten Strasbourg (1-2) and Nimes (0-4) on two trips since early December. We now expect them very motivated to bounce and keep up with the top 3, desperate to close the six-point gap to 3rd placed Lille.
Reims have plans of their own, though, and they sit two points clear of Lyon with a game in hand. They proved themselves a very tough nut to crack and their mid-week win over Montpellier (1-0) in League Cup was their third in a row – after also beating St Etienne (3-1) at this ground and Toulouse (0-1) on the road in two December outings.
Red and Whites saw just one loss in their last 11 outings across competitions and we’ve seen them show off in some very tough games along the way, including a 0-2 win at PSG, a 1-1 draw against Bordeaux, a goalless draw against Monaco and more. David Guion’s outfit feel like a dark horse in the chase for the top 4 spot early in the campaign and they’ll certainly want to build on the impression.
We do expect them to show off and we feel they should have what it takes to capitalize on Lyon’s recent hiccups, as we go for a Double Chance – Reims to win or Draw at 1/2 with bet365 – which has caught the eye of heavy hitters already.
We feel we should be in for a narrow occasion and a lot could depend on their ability to keep it together at the back once again. With that in mind, we hope not to see many goals at Auguste-Delaune II Stadium and we’ll go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with William Hill.
