Reims vs Angers French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Reims vs Angers
Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).

Reims don’t just need a win they need a goal. The club have only scored one goal in the league in 6 weeks. Ironically that came away to PSG, but Reims are not playing good football and need a major boost to get going after starting the season well.

Reims have drawn 4 of their last 5 games and those all ended in dour 0-0 results in between that they lost 4-1 at PSG. They are in 17th place but do at least have a 4 point gap between them and the bottom three.

Angers are in 10th place and have won just 1 game from their last four. Reims would overtake them with a win so there is a lot to play for in this game. Away from home Angers have won 2 and lost 2 but what is important is that they have won their last two which came against Dijon and Monaco.

Reims vs Angers: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met here was in 2016 where Reims won 2-1.
  • Angers have not won at Reims for 10 years.
  • Reims have won the last 3 games in a row when being at home.

Reims vs Angers: Prediction

The bookmakers have made Reims the favourites to win this game but the odds are wide open and they are not odds on to do so. We are going to back the home side because they have already showed much potential earlier in the season and surely their goal drought and lack of wins at home can’t go on. Angers have a terrible record here and have to travel across France for this fixture, so all of this will be against them.

Reims vs Angers: Betting Tips
