Reims vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 7th March 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaun.
Reims up and down season continues but the club still has a chance to finish in a European place and will try and get all three points at home to Brest.
The club are in 8th place with 38 points and have remained unbeaten for their last 3 games, though two of those have ended in draws. Their last match was impressive getting a 1-1 draw at Monaco though.
Reims biggest problem this season is that they have drawn 11 of their games and that is the most in the league, it is 40% of their matches, and has really hampered their season so far. The club have won 19 points at home from 39 with just one win from their last four games here, although that win was their last game played here when they beat Rennes 1-0.
Even though Brest are down in 14th place they are only four points adrift of Reims and so a win could put them right behind the hosts and close the gap up. Brest are seven points clear of the drop and they should be fine but will feel another two wins should seal it. The club lost their last game at home to Angers 1-0 and they have just one win from their past five and it is clear to think that the club are not in good form coming into this game.
Reims vs Brest: Head to Head
- The teams have not played here since 2017 when Brest won 1-0.
- The last 4 meetings have all seen under 2.5 goals.
- From the last 8 meetings at Reims, Brest have won just twice.
Reims vs Brest: Prediction
Reims just have more quality and should win this game and we think that they can get off to a positive start and take an early lead, that is what will be key here.
Brest have just one win in their last five away games and it is worth remembering that they have lost over 50% of their games on the road.
Reims need to be disciplined though as Brest will have their chances and remain a threat, but we think they will have enough to get the job done at the weekend.
Reims vs Brest: Bet Tips:
Reims to be winning at half time at 2.75 (7/4)
Reims to score 3+ goals at 5.00 (4/1).
