Montpellier vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 25th October 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.

Reims come into this game with the real threat of relegation which sounds incredible as we are only in October but we have seen this in past seasons when a club starts as poorly as Reims have and cannot get good form.

Currently Reims are 19th and have lost 5 games and drawn two with no wins. They are already 5 points from safety and last weekend they lost 3-1 at home to newly promoted Lorient.

Reims have won 1 point from their last 15 on offer and this fixture looks very tricky for them although Montpellier are not in the best form.

Montpellier are in 8th place with 11 points and have started the season in decent form but their current form has seen the club go three games without victory. Last weekend they dropped another two points by drawing against Monaco and they have also recently drawn against bottom club Dijon.

Something is missing from their usual pacey game, the question is can they find it again when they take on Reims at home?

Montpellier vs Reims Head to Head

  • The last time the clubs met here was in 2019 when Reims were able to win 4-2.
  • Reims have won the last 3 meetings against Montpellier.
  • There is a 50% chance based on recent games to see over 3.5 goals.

Montpellier vs Reims: Prediction

Montpellier will be the favourites to win this game and they have easily a better team than Reims. But Reims have always upped their game when playing good sides and we think the club can put in a good shift here.

Montpellier’s recent form has been worrying, and maybe the value here is to back Reims but on the handicap so if the game ends in a draw we would still be covered and win.

Of course we must also remember that Reims have a good recent record over Montpellier and the club have put in two extra training shifts ahead of this game, so we will back Reims to get something for us at the weekend.

Montpellier vs Reims Bet Tips:

  • Reims to beat Montpellier on the handicap with a +1 goal start at 1.72 (8/11)
  • Highest Scoring Half: 2nd half at 2.10 (11/10).
