Lille vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 17th January 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).

Looking at the clubs different positions Lille will be the favourites to win this match and they come into this game in 3rd place and are in with a big chance to have a title challenge.

Lille have 39 points the same as PSG and are only 1 point behind Lyon in 1st place. Lille’s form has been good although they did lose recently against Angers which was a set back and a win their would have seen them in 1st place now.

From the last 10 games Lille have won 20 points and have been solid this season and at home they have lost just once. The worry for Lille is that they have gone their last 2 home matches without victory, is that a trend or simply a blip?

Lille did get back to winning ways in their last game as they beat Nimes away from home 1-0.

This is a difficult game for Reims who are in 14th place but the club are going through their best period of the season. They have gone their last 5 games undefeated and on form would be in 12th place.

Reims beat Saint Etienne 3-1 in their last game and have gone their last two matches away from home unbeaten with a win over Bordeaux and a draw against Marseille.

Lille vs Reims Prediction

Lille are odds on at home but they are still odds that could be worth taking on as they should win this game.

However Reims are very good at raising their game against quality sides they have done this time and again.

Lille has the quality to get a good win here but the fact is that they rarely do against Reims and games can be very close. This is why it could be worth taking on the away side on the handicap, not only will they raise their game they are in the best form of their season.
