Nantes vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 16th September 2018
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes).

Ligue 1 is back after the international break and Nantes fans will be hoping that their team has not lost momentum. After a slow start the Canaries went 2 games unbeaten just before the break producing an inspired 3-2 win at Strasbourg,

The club are in 16th place and are waiting for their first home win of the season after losing against Monaco on the opening day and then drawing 1-1 against Caen.

Reims have shown their relegation side in recent weeks which is unfortunate as they got off to an amazing start in the league with wins over Lyon and Nice.

But they come into this game having lost back to back matches against Amiens by 4-1 and then lost at home to Montpellier 1-0. Whilst they are an attacking side who can create chances there is no denying that they have been played very poor in their last two games. This has seen the club drop down to 11th with a 2 goal minus on goal difference.

Nantes vs Reims: Head to Head

  • The teams have not played here in 3 years where Nantes won 1-0.
  • Reims have no wins at Nantes in over a decade.
  • 4 of the 6 matches played in the last 10 years at Nantes has ended in a draw.

Nantes vs Reims Prediction

Nantes have shown a big improvement at the beginning of the month and at home they will be aiming to win their first game of the season. This is quite a trip for Reims to the other side of France and if we judge how poor they have played in their last two games we have to go for a Nantes win.

We will also back on the anytime goal market and we should expect few goals but many open goal chances for the home side who will press from the first whistle for all three points.
