Reims vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 30th August 2020
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.
Reims started the season good or bad depending on how you look at it. The famous French club earned a 2-2 draw away to Monaco on the opening weekend. That looks like a good result until you dive deeper and see that they had taken a 2-0 lead in that game.
Monaco were able to come back into the game and come back and all in all it looks like 2 points dropped for Reims. The club will be happy to return back home but they will be facing a tricky tie in having to play Lille.
Lille drew 1-1 at home to Rennes but that was expected to be three points for the club and they were clearly the second best side in the game with Rennes having plenty of opportunities. Going away to Reims is never an easy game.

Reims v Lille: Prediction
This should be an open game. There is the chance that a limited number of fans will be able to attend this game possibly 2,000. But the atmosphere at Reims isn’t usually the best anyway and sometimes games can take a long time to get going.
This is an unpredictable match but going on last week if Reims can keep their discipline then they have a good chance at getting a home win. They just need to start with aggression and confidence.
It will be interesting to see if Lille play an extra player at the back because last week their defence was all over the place and they really struggled at times.
