Lens vs Reims Prediction & Match Preview

Lens vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 8th November 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert Delelis (Lens).

Four games without defeat ended for Lens in their last game when they lost 4-0 to Lille. The club have actually not played a game in the league since October 18th as so many of their players have got Coronavirus and their scheduled games had to be postponed.

Whilst the club would have had some rest they will also be quite rusty coming into this match but they do have 2 games in hand of other teams above them. In theory they could be 2nd if they win their extra games so there is a lot to play for.

At home is where Lens have built up their points and they have a 100% record here with wins over Saint Etienne, Bordeaux and at the beginning of the season PSG.

Reims have started very poorly but there are hints that the club could be turning a corner. They have climbed up to 15th place after winning back to back games beating Montpellier and Strasbourg and the club come here with some confidence.

Reims have actually earned more points away than at home and have gone their last two undefeated and gone to Rennes who have been impressive this season and claimed a 2-2 draw.

Lens vs Reims: Head to Head

  • The last time the clubs played here the game ended 1-1.
  • Reims have not won at Lens since 2017.
  • 5 from the last seven meetings has seen under 2.5 goals.

Lens vs Reims: Prediction

There is nothing much between the sides and it will be interesting to see how Lens come back after no games for the past few weeks.

Their latest loss against Lille should not be seen as the end of the world, Lille are simply on a different level and before then Lens had played some good football.

Reims have picked up form but can the club really win three in a row? Many pundits do not think they can, we are tempted to go for the draw, but for full time it could be risky so we will choose this method for half time.

Lens vs Reims Bet Tips:

  • Half Time Result: Draw at 2.00 (1/1)
  • Correct Score: 0-0 or 1-1 at 8.00 (7/1) and 6.00 (5/1).
