Reims vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune.
Once again we have two struggling teams taking on each other in the French top flight. While the Red and Whites have been on a dismal run all through the season, the Eagles had begun their campaign on a positive note, and then completely let go of their form.
At present, they are one of the worst teams in the whole competition, and are conceding goals in plenty.
Going on, the season is about to enter its next phase, and teams are getting desperate for points – considering the impending relegation dogfight, and the race for the playoff spots.
Likely, it’s expected that these two under-pressure squads will deliver a high-scoring thriller at the Stade Auguste-Delaune this Sunday. Moreover, majority of recent h2h clashes at this venue also had witnessed both teams getting their names on the scoresheet.
Reims vs Nice: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw, and the match-up had taken place in February of 2020.
- Patrick Vieira’s men had recorded five of the previous eight overall wins.
- At this venue, every single encounter since 2015 has had goals from both teams. In fact, this past decade, barring two fixtures, 100% of encounters at this venue have had goals from both teams.
- The hosts are winless at this venue since 2015.
Reims vs Nice: Prediction
David Guion’s men lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Lyon. In the meantime, the Eagles lost 1-3 at home against Dijon. Note that Dijon are the absolute worst team in the league, and are placed dead last in the table.
Going on, Vieira’s men are also on a five-game losing run, and had conceded a total of 14 goals in the process. They had also conceded three or more goals in four of their past eight match-ups away from home.
On the other hand, their counterparts had conceded two or more goals in five of their last eight overall fixtures, and have lost all of their appearances at home this season – barring their encounter against Strasbourg, one of the weakest teams in the competition.
In addition, this past decade, disregarding two h2h meetings at this stadium, every single face-to-face clash had goals from both teams.
Likely, with either team being desperate for points, expect goals to come in plenty this Sunday.
