Reims vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 5th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.

Reims ended a slump in form in style by beating Angers 4-1 away and the result was made even better by the fact that they were losing the game. The win has propped the side up to 7th place and they are just two points shy of 4th place.

Form has been poor for the club with just 1 win in five and they have found it hard to score goals, although getting 4 at the weekend will hopefully have recharged their batteries.

Home matches have been dominated by draws with 6 from 11 games so far. Whilst the club have only conceded 6 goals at home this season they have also only scored 9.

Nice beat Lyon in a big game for the club and they will hope to have made a statement with that. The club are in 8th place and have the same points as Reims. They have gone the last five games unbeaten and haven’t lost a match since the beginning of December.

Still Nice do not have a good away record winning just 2 all season and have earned just 2 points in their last 5 away games.

Reims vs Nice: Head to Head

  • Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
  • Since 2011 Nice have only won once at Reims.
  • Reims have not won at home to Nice since 2013.

Reims vs Nice: Prediction

It’s very difficult to predict what Reims will do. This is the same team that earlier in the season went to Paris and beat PSG 2-0 and then lost at home to Dijon in the next game when Dijon were in the bottom three. This sums up Reims completely.

What we do know is they struggle to score goals at home, and we are going to choose under 2.5 goals. We will also back the half time correct score as a draw and in favour of Nice who are in very good form and gone 2 months without a loss.

Reims vs Nice: Bet Tips:

  • Under 2.5 goals at 1.50 (1/2)
  • Half Time Score: 0-0 or 1-0 to Nice at 2.25 (5/4) and 5.00 (4/1)
