Le Havre vs Reims
2017/18 French Ligue 2
Date: Monday, 6th November 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Océane (Le Havre).
A top battle is on the prospects in Ligue 2 this Monday when Le Harve welcome league leaders Reims.
Le Havre are one of the sides that made a racing start to the season by winning the first four matches of the campaign. Things have fallen apart since as the team managed 3 wins from the next 8, losing 4. The inconsistent run pushed them down to 7th in the league table and opened up a 7 point gap with Reims at the top of the standings.
One thing that still remains solid for Le Havre is their home form. The team is unbeaten in their 6 games with 4 wins and 2 draws. They conceded just once during the period, while scored a massive 14 goals.
Reims sit at the top of the table with 30 points and they can take advantage of Nime’s slip on matchday 14 to extend the lead at the top to 5 points. They have the form on their side with 10 of their 13 matches so far being wins, while the other three resulted in defeats.
When Le Havre’s form is only limited to their home ground, Reims are impressing across all venues. Away from home, they won 5 of their 7 and are ranked one in away record at the moment.
Le Havre vs Reims: Head-to-head
Reims are unbeaten in their last five Ligue 2 h2h meetings by winning 3 and 2 draws. However, the two meetings at Le Havre during the period are 1-1 draws.

Le Havre vs Reims: Predictions
Unarguably, Reims are enjoying an outstanding first half of the season. But Le Havre’s home record this season clearly points out the fact that the visitors must have to break some sweat to get something out of Monday’s clash. Also, the home side are unbeaten in their last head-to-head meetings at this very ground. So, my main bet will be will backing Le Havre on a double chance to win or draw.
