Reims vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).
Reims have really tailed off in the last few weeks and lost the pace with chasing pack. They are in 7th place and haven’t won a game for 5 weeks.
What has been worrying for the club is that they aren’t scoring many goals either, which is never good. They have scored 1 goal in over 360 minutes of football.
The flipside is that the club have developed a mean defence. Indeed, currently they have the best in the league and have conceded just 7 goals all season. At home they have incredibly only conceded 2 goals.
Home form is a problem for the club not so much in the game that they lose as currently it is just one but they have drawn 4 so far that equates to 60% of games. Despite these problems and setbacks Reims could go into the top 6 with a win and are only four points behind 3rd place.
Bordeaux are in 4th place with 22 points and if Marseille and Angers do not get points at the weekend and they win they could go 2nd . It has been one of Bordeaux’s strongest starts to Ligue 1 in a while. They come into this game in good form having no losses in their last 3 matches.
The club are unpredictable on the road but have won 11 points from a possible 21 which is actually good enough to be the 3rd best away side in the league.
Reims vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 0-0.
- Bordeaux have not won at Reims since 2007.
- There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Reims vs Bordeaux: Prediction
We’re backing Reims to get the win. It has been too long, and Reims usually go through poor spells and then good; and this could be the match to start that up again. They have an overall decent record over Bordeaux and Bordeaux do not have a good record away here.
We will also back under 2.5 goals, given how Reims defence has been so good and this is a match that could well be decided by just one piece of magic, perhaps a set-piece and an odd goal.
