Reims vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 24 May 2019
Kick-Off 20:05 UK / 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune II (Reims).
Reims returned to winning ways last weekend when they edged past Bordeaux 0-1 away at Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
The victory secured Les Rouges et Blanc a top-half finish which is a huge accomplishment if we know they featured the second division football this time last year.
David Guion’s troops will thus have the honour of playing host to the new Ligue 1 champions and competitions heavyweights in a festive atmosphere on Friday evening at Stade Auguste-Delaune II.
PSG have secured the title defense long time ago and the lack of motivation caused a run of somewhat slower form in the last couple of months.
Thomas Tuchel’s men were winless in three successive matches in all competitions (two losses and a draw).
They have really been misfiring, but still found wind in their sails following back-to-back victories over Angers and Dijon in last two rounds.
Reims vs PSG: Head-to-head
Les Parisiens were the dominant force in the history of this match-up.
They won six, drew two and lost only one of nine meetings with Les Rouges et Blanc.
Each of last seven head to head to head games saw three or more goals scored, while both teams were on the scoreline in all of last five clashes.
Reims vs PSG: Prediction
We have reasons to expect a goal fest in this last round fixture as neither of two teams should pay special attention to their defensive displays here.
The hosts shipped three goals in two consecutive league losses to the likes of Nimes and Caen before beating Bordeaux last time out.
This will be the music to the ears of Kylian Mbappe who took his league tally to 32 goals with a late brace in the drubbing of Dijon six days ago.
PSG failed to keep a single clean sheet in last five away outings in all competitions. This is why we find the value in backing the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score bet at 1.72 odds.
