Reims vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th February 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.
Reims keep picking up the points most weeks and most are draws but it has got the club out of trouble as they continue to climb the table.
The club are in 13th place and are seven points clear of the bottom three and they would still welcome 2-3 victories just to make sure of survival, but they should be fine in their current form.
At home Reims has just 4 wins so far which isn’t good at all although the club are unbeaten this year at home as they have chalked up so many draws.
Montpellier got a very good win over Rennes last weekend and they are eight points clear of Reims. Montpellier are showing very good form and have won their last 3 games in a row and are unbeaten in their last four.
What has been so encouraging for the club is that they have scored 8 goals in their past 3 games and that includes beating Lyon and they should be the favourites to win this encounter even if they are the away team.
Reims vs Montpellier: Head to Head
- Reims have won the last 3 meetings against Montpellier.
- Last season Reims won this game 1-0.
- There is a 60% chance to see over 3.5 goals.
Reims vs Montpellier: Prediction
Earlier in the season Reims actually went to Montpellier and beat them 4-0 but that seems a long time ago now and Montpellier are a much better equipped team now.
The form is with Montpellier and if they can control the pace of the game then we think they can come out of this one as comfortable winners and we will be backing them to get the job done.
Montpellier are good value to win this and coming to Reims is not an easy ground to play at but the away side has more of the technical ability to see this one out.
Reims vs Montpellier Bet Tips:
Montpellier to beat Reims at 2.75 (7/4)
Montpellier to score 2+ goals at 2.50 (6/4).
