Reims vs Lens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 13th February 2021
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).
Reims come into this match with disappointment as they have already been knocked out of the Coupe de France after losing at home 4-3 against lower league Valenciennes.
That is a bitter blow to the club as the cup was their only chance to win silverware this season. Last weekend was another poor result too as they lost 1-0 away to Lorient.
Reims are in 14th place and have 28 points and it could be possible to move up 2-3 places depending on other results and the club have picked up 7 points from their last 15 on offer.
Lens come into this game unbeaten in their last 3 and are in sixth place and 8 points ahead of their hosts. Last weekend they drew at home 0-0 against Rennes.
On the road Lens have won 50% of their games and have been very impressive lately beating Montpellier and Marseille away from home. Lens have not lost away from home in over 1 month.
Reims vs Lens: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here in the league was back in 2015 when the match finished 0-0.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture we were treated to an 8 goal thriller that finished 4-4.
- There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Reims vs Lens: Prediction
Reims come here with some confidence shot and one has to wonder what that cup match took out of the team?
Lens are on a good roll in the league and have really proved themselves away from home and we should be backing them.
This isn’t an easy game for Lens who will have to create many chances and dictate the pace of the game but Lens are a better side this season and with Reims we have seen them feel too sorry for themselves on plenty of occasions and the feel good factor is certainly with the away side.
