Reims vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 27th September 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.
Since Reims is so close to Paris there is a little rivalry in this game, and the home club have upset PSG on some occasions in the past.
Reims will have to do that on Sunday evening because they have begun the season in appalling form. They are yet to win this season and have 3 defeats and one draw. They come into this game having lost their last 3 in a row.
Last weekend felt like a new low as Reims lost to Metz who hadn’t won yet and had themselves been on a 3 game losing run. So what is wrong with Reims the same club who finished in a Europa League qualifying position last season? One is they have sold off some key players namely Axel Disasi to Monaco and that is a big loss for the club.
The other is the Europa League, Reims have been focused to qualify for the competition proper but they were knocked out in midweek, in short it has been a terrible few weeks for the club.
PSG have had their own troubles with Covid-19 affecting the club and they lost their first two games of the season. But the champions have bounced back and won their last two and now have crept up to 8th place.
The good news for the club is that their best team is back. Kylian Mbappe will play and so will Neymar, Angel Di Maria will also be there and the club are looking stronger week by week.
Reims vs PSG: Head to Head
- Reims have won the last 2 league games between the clubs.
- The last time the teams met at this stadium was at the beginning of the year in the Coupe de la Ligue where PSG won 3-0.
- PSG have not won at this stadium since 2013.
- In the league 6 of the last seven games have seen both teams to score.
Reims vs PSG: Prediction
Reims are very poor at the moment but they always raise their game against PSG. However the club had to travel to Europe in midweek for the qualifying of the Europa League, PSG could rest and of course PSG have the better team.
PSG do struggle here but in the cup they put that right and we think we could see a similar score here, it is very hard to go against PSG. They are not 1st and are chasing the top position.
The difference in quality between the two sides is too big and whilst in the past Reims had one or two players to give PSG cause for thought that doesn’t seem like the case now. Away win.
