Caen vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 11th May 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen)
Caen are in fight back mode and it would be a very special story indeed if the club were able to survive in Ligue 1 this season after looking destined to be relegated.
Currently they are in a play off position of 18th and are 3 points behind Monaco. They have gone their last 3 games unbeaten after back to back wins against Nice and Dijon and they drew disappointedly against Guingamp 0-0 in their last game. But back at home they will feel confident to try and pull off a good result against Reims.
Reims have fallen apart in the last 6 weeks and have been back to the poor team from the beginning of the season. The club were 5th a few weeks ago and now they have slipped to 9th place. They have gained just 3 points from their last 15 and have no wins for almost two months.
Away from home they have drawn their last two games and their last match was a disaster ending in a 3-0 home loss against Nimes. The club have 49 points and once upon a time they looked like finishing in a Europa Cup place but they are now a huge 13 points from that target and their dream has ended for another season.
Caen vs Reims: Head to Head
Earlier this season Caen were able to draw 2-2 at Reims.
The last time the teams played here was in 2016 when Reims won 2-0.
4 of the last 7 meetings have seen both teams to score.
Caen vs Reims: Prediction
Caen are in better form and have the motivation to win and are at home, all of this equates to a home win and that is what we will bank on. Reims are in very poor form and we do not know what would motivate them here especially if Caen get off to a good start. And that is the key to success here Caen must score early, and they must take risks, they need to ask themselves how much do they want survival. We will back them and believe in them to get all three points.
