Reims vs Montpellier Prediction & Match Preview

Reims vs Montpellier
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th October 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.

Reims are in sixth place after 9 games and have lost just once in their last four matches. Their last game ended in a 1-0 win away to Rennes which was seen as a very good result.

Reims remain unpredictable, they infamously beat PSG in Paris a few weeks ago and then followed that up by losing at home to then bottom club Dijon. You never quite know what Reims team will turn up.

The home side could break into the top 4 with a win at the weekend. The problem is in front of their home fans they have been poor this season with just one victory.

Montpellier are in 7th place on the same points as Reims so this makes this an interesting game and it could become really competitive as a result. The away side have only lost 1 in their past five and are in decent form. Their last game ended in a good 3-1 win over Monaco who had just found their form.

Reims vs Montpellier: Head to Head

  • Last season Montpellier won this fixture 1-0.
  • 3 of the last 4 games to take place at Reims have ended in Montpellier wins.
  • 4 of the last 10 games have ended with the same correct score of 3-1.

Reims vs Montpelier: Prediction

As far as this season is concerned the clubs have had equal starts, and Reims will be banking on home soil to win, but they have been poor, do they have a complex playing in front of their home fans who have understandably been demanding over the past few poor seasons?

What we must remember is that Montpellier’s away form is poor- they haven’t won on the road all season and their last result finished in a 1-0 loss to Strasbourg.

Let’s back Montpellier on the double chance, we have zero confidence in Reims playing well at home at the moment and the away side can cause them some problems.
