Reims vs Nantes Prediction & Match Preview

Reims vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).

Reims have lost 8 matches from their 14 played and come into this encounter in 19th place.

The club have showed just a small glimpse of some of last seasons quality but overall have been very poor. Last weekend was enough loss as they were defeated 2-1 at Brest.

Reims have picked up just 2 points from their last 15 and at home they have lost 4 and won just once. One of the biggest worries for the club is the lack of goals scored, just 3 so far at home. Reims have lost 3 of their last four games overall.

Nantes are in 14th place and are four points clear of their hosts. Like Reims they come into this match in poor form and have been drawing too many games lately. Last weekend Nantes drew 1-1 with Dijon currently the bottom club.

Away from home Nantes have won just once from seven games and their last trip saw them lose 3-1 at Marseille, this ended a 2 game unbeaten run on the road. Victory would not change Nantes position but it would give them more of a safety net from the bottom three where they could pull off a six point cushion.

Reims vs Nantes: Head to Head

  • The last time the clubs played here was in 2019 when Reims won 1-0.
  • The last three meetings have all ended in under 1.5 goals.
  • Nantes have not won at Reims since 2011 and that was in the Coupe de la Ligue.

Reims vs Nantes: Prediction

There is absolutely no confidence with the two teams and when they kick off the weather conditions will be very cold too. This match has a draw written all over it.

Of course draws at full time can be a risky choice so we will back the draw at half time. We don’t expect to see many goals, Reims have really struggled to score at home and will be cautious here.

Nantes will probably be a mid table side and whilst they will have chances in this game one expects that they could be content with getting a point. Perhaps the two teams will surprise us but judging on how their seasons have been so far we doubt it and we do not expect an entertaining game.

Reims vs Nantes Bet Tips:

  • Half Time: A draw at 2.00 (1/1)
  • Under 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13).
