Reims vs Amiens
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 2nd March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims)
Reims are in brilliant form coming into this weekend and can the team start to dream? Reims are known as one of the first teams to light up European football in the 1950’s with the introduction of the European Cup and they are just 5 points from a possible Champions League qualification.
Maybe more realistically the team will be looking to try and finish in a Europa League spot but this season has been superb considering they have come back up from Ligue 2.
Reims are in 6th place and they have won 4 of their last 5 games and have not lost a match for over 3 months. At home they have lost just 2 games all season and have won back to back home matches, their last home game was a win over Rennes by 2-0.
Amiens are in 17th place but they do have a 4-point gap over Caen, but are still in a danger zone. Their last game ended in a 1-0 win over Nice which was an excellent result for the club.
Away from home Amiens though have the worst record in the league where they have lost 9 of their 13 games and won just 2. They have lost their last 3 games in a row and have scored just 6 goals on the road, which is also the worst record in the league.

Reims vs Amiens: Prediction
From all the Ligue 1 games this weekend this is the game where we feel very confident to see the home win. It is true that Amiens have claimed some very good result over Reims in recent seasons, but Reims are in the form of their lives right now and it is difficult to see the club slip up at home to a team in 17th.
Reims need to keep winning and at least picking up points at home, and they have every chance to win this game. We think they can ease to a professional victory here and take home all 3 points.
