Lyon vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 11th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).
Lyon has been on fine form all this season, especially at home. Their target to qualify for the Champions League is still very much alive, and as it is every year, the team targets home games with much more vigor. Les Gones also has an added target of matching the achievements, or at least to not fall far behind of their women’s team, that has seemed virtually unstoppable in recent years.
The struggling away form of the team has been a cause of worry for Reims’s fans. David Guion’s men really cannot catch a break too, as a tricky schedule has forced them to face tough teams back-to-back, on the road in the last month.

Lyon’s impressive home record extends over their rivals for this match, too. The total five matches against Stade at this ground saw four home wins. On top of that, Reims was winless in seven of their last eight away games. The weekend tie will most probably result in a Lyon win.
Guion’s men have scored against Lyon in three of their last four h2h games at this ground. The Kids have conceded at least a goal in eight of their last 11 home-ties. Expect both teams to get on the scoresheet in this match.
