Reims vs PSG Prediction
Reims took their place in the semis after defeating defending champions Strasbourg via penalties. Meanwhile, PSG made mincemeat out of their opposition in the Quarters, as they eliminated St. Etienne with a 6-1 scoreline.
By all means the favorites for this encounter are the Paris outfit. They are easily the absolute best team in France by a mile, and are often considered to be one of the best teams in the world.
As of now, they are considered to have one of the best attacking line-ups in the whole of Europe, and the team have been showing justice to that tag with some incredible displays.
Moreover, PSG are unbeaten in their last 15 games (of which an astounding 13 were wins), and were unbeaten in 27 of their former 30 fixtures (of which 25 were wins).
On the road, they are on a streak of six wins, and scored a total of 19 goals from their prior five away matches alone. They are also invincible in 14 of their last 15 games on the road, and of those, 13 were wins.
On the other hand, Reims are winless in their previous five match-ups, and were so in ten of their preceding thirteen. At home, they have a total of just two wins from their past six appearances, and just four from their preceding twelve.
In addition, PSG recorded five of the last seven h2h wins, and had scored four or more goals in two of the prior four h2h encounters. They have also not failed to score against this opponent in the previous seven years, and scored twice or more in six of the past nine.
Furthermore, PSG are at the top of the Ligue 1 table, and have a lead of twenty points over the eighth-placed Reims. Thomas Tuchel’s men have also scored a total of 50 goals so far from their 20 fixtures, almost thrice as that of the 17 by Reims.
Considering all these factors together, it’s apparent that PSG are the overwhelming favorites to post the three points this Wednesday.
