PSG vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 26th September 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
Given how close the cities are this is very much like a derby when PSG meet Reims in the late night game in Ligue 1 to wrap up the midweek fixtures.
PSG have won 6 from six games after they came back from being a goal down to beat Rennes 3-1. It was the first time this season that Neymar did not score after starting the game. PSG as expected have been brilliant this season as they look to claim a 6th title in 7 years. From 3 home games they have won them all and scored 10 goals conceding just 1 which came against Angers and they will of course start as the big odds on favourites.
Reims have been promoted once again to Ligue 1 and their campaign did start off well with wins against Nice and Lyon. But they have faded in recent weeks and played another dull game in their 0-0 home result against Dijon at the weekend. Reims are now in 11th place and 10 points behind Paris.
Reims have not won a game in 5 weeks and away from home their last win came on the opening day of the season. They have scored just 2 goals so far on the road.
PSG vs Reims: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played in Paris, PSG won 4-1.
- There have only been 4 recent matches between the teams in Paris and PSG have won them all.
- The last 3 games in Paris have seen PSG score at least 3 goals against Reims.
PSG vs Reims: Prediction
PSG should win the game but they are massive odds on of 1/8 and represent zero value. Kylian Mbappe will be missing as he serves the last game of his suspension after his red card against Nimes. Edinson Cavani has lost some form but even with these problems PSG can usually score at will and are technically stronger than Reims.
Reims have been very poor this season after a good start but they do try and raise their game against better teams. With that said we will look into different markets.
