France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st April 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims)
Reims have not won for 4 games which has really damaged their bid to finish in a European place. However they have drawn their last two games and lost just 1 match in their past 15.
Their last game ended in a 0-0 result away to Monaco. Reims are in 7th place on 48 points and they are 5 points adrift of 4th and Saint Etienne, the task is obvious on Sunday and that is they must win this game.
Saint Etienne have been brilliant this season and are currently in a Europa League position. If they want the Champions League then this is a must win game because they have slipped 6 points behind 3rd placed Lyon.
Saint Etienne’s form is very good with 3 wins from their past 4 games and their last defeat was at the beginning of March against Lille. Away from home the club have won just 4 games which has been their problem this season, but they have gone their last 2 matches on the road unbeaten.

Reims vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
Reims have not had good results against Saint Etienne but we think there is a chance this weekend that can change. Reims have less to lose, and they have been very consistant this season especially at home and they rarely lose at their stadium.
It is possible we will witness a very close game but Reims know how to use their wingers and will try to set the pace of the game, something their opponent will not like. Reims home win for us.
