Reims vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 29th September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade August Delaune (Reims)
Reims gave a decent fight against PSG in Paris in midweek but still lost 4-1 which tells you how hard it is to beat the team who didn’t have Kylian Mbappe in their side but did have the likes of Edinson Cavani and Neymar. Reims actually took the lead before predictably losing the match.
This latest loss has seen Reims drop to 14th place and they have no wins in their last 5 games which includes losing 3 of those. They have picked up just 50% of their points at home and will need to increase that or they could be in trouble this season. Whilst they have only conceded 1 goal at home which is the best record in the league they have also only scored 1 goal at home which is the worst record in the league.
Bordeaux come here with more confidence and have gone their last 3 games unbeaten. They have won two of those in a row with victories over Guingamp and Lille. If Reims win this game they would go above Bordeaux so there is a lot to play for here. Away from home Bordeaux have lost 66% of their games with just 1 win which was against the poorest side in the league- Guingamp.
Reims vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- The last time the teams met here was in 2016 where Reims won 4-1.
- Bordeaux have no wins here since 2007.
- In the last 3 meetings both teams have scored.
Reims vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Reims have been really poor since the 3rd week of the championship but they did show a lot of character against PSG even if they went on to lose the game heavily. If they can show this against a weaker team like Bordeaux and they are at home perhaps they can get something from this game. They do have a good record over Bordeaux and Bordeaux seem more comfortable playing their football at home. So we will opt for a home win and predict the half time score for smaller stakes.
