Reims vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.

Reims were poor in midweek as they drew 0-0 at home with Dijon and the club will get another bite of the cherry so to speak when they remain at home for this next encounter.

Reims are in 15th place and five points clear of the bottom three but they are not out of the woods and have remained a frustrating team. One feels that they just need a couple of wins in a row to run off in the distance but they don’t seem to be managing it.

Still Reims have gone their last 4 games unbeaten which is good and at home they have won only twice but they have gone their last 3 without defeat.

Saint Etienne have 19 points and Reims could go past them with a win. The club have drawn their last 3 games in a row. Their last draw was significant as they held PSG to a 1-1 result.

St.Etienne are unbeaten in their last five and whilst their attacking play has not been great they have become a difficult side to beat.

Reims vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

This could be a close game on paper but it is possible that Reims have missed a beat and are just not putting in very good performances.

This is the type of game in freezing conditions and with no fans present that could end in a draw but if Saint Etienne think positive they could come away with victory here.

The market in this game is quite wide open, and we are confident the away side after their very good draw against PSG can come here and get all three points, and with their price being decent this is our only choice for this encounter.
