Nantes vs Reims
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 15th September 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.
After starting the season with a 2-1 loss at Lille, Nantes have been picture perfect and have gone their last 3 games undefeated. This includes back to back wins coming into this game. Those victories came against Amiens and Montpellier.
Whilst Nantes are not scoring many goals, just 4 so far they are also not conceding too many and have shipped just 3 prior to this game. With a new coach, there is a new direction and the team are working hard that’s why they come into this match in 7th position.
In 6th place is Reims who have lost one game so far, away to Brest but they are playing good football especially at home, the biggest concern could be their travels, it was the difference between European football last season.
Reims beat Lille 2-0 in their last game before the international break and also beat Marseille away from home. Reims are still at that stage where were not sure what type of performance we are going to witness from a side who always threaten to finish in a top six position but never do. Could this be the season to change all of that?
Nantes vs Reims: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 0-0.
3 of the last 4 meetings have ended under 1.5 goals.
Reims have not at Nantes for over 20 years.
In the last 8 meetings Nantes have just 1 win with quite a few games ending in draws.
Nantes vs Reims: Prediction
The truth is both sides are very equal coming into this game and there isn’t anything in this one. This could be a match where both sides simply cancel each other out and we could be looking at a draw.
Backing the draw as a full time result has always been risky business and so instead we will back the draw at half time. There isn’t usually many goals in these games and so we will also back under 1.5 goals, for small stakes.
We don’t expect to see a great game as both teams might just be happy to get a point each.
