Reims vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 24th January 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).
Reims good run of games ended last weekend although it didn’t feel like a surprise as they lose away to Lille. The game was close though and the final result was only 2-1.
Reims are in 15th but victory could see them move up one or two places. The club have collected 8 points from their last 15 and are now six points from the bottom three. They have significantly improved but are not out of the woods yet.
At home Reims only have 3 wins from their 9 games but they are undefeated in their last four games and their last home game ended in a 3-1 win over Saint Etienne.
Brest come into this encounter in 12th place and have 26 points and all in all it has been a good season for the club so far.
However there is no denying that Brest have had poor form and have lost 3 from their last four games including back to back matches ahead of the Reims game.
Brest’s last game ended in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Rennes and on the road the club have won just 20% of their games and have one of the poorest away records in Ligue 1.
Reims vs Brest Head to Head
- Last season Reims won this fixture 1-0.

Reims vs Brest Prediction
Reims are very unpredictable in their games this season, and if they don’t start well they tend to make heavy weather of a game.
The value then might be in backing Brest to win on the handicap, they have been poor away from home but are the type of team that can be a banana skin to Reims if they start slowly.
Brest’s tactics will be to absorb the pressure as Reims will have plenty of the ball and then to counter attack and our choice of bet covers us in case the match ends in a draw.
