Reims vs Toulouse
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune II (Reims).
Reims are going to host Toulouse in the 16th round of French Ligue 1 on Wednesday evening.
After being promoted at the beginning of the season, the main goal for the hosts is to remain in the top flight. And they are doing very well so far as they are pretty far from the danger by sitting on the 9th place. Xavier Chevalerin and the lads have been putting very good performances lately as they’ve picked up ten points from the last five rounds. Although they are one of the most inefficient teams in the competition, their defence is really hard to crack.
Toulouse are set for another disappointing season being far from the battle for one of the continental spots. They are only two points ahead of the red line and the visitors have been searching for a victory for the last eleven rounds. They also have troubles in converting their chances into goals, but Alain Casanova’s side is playing bad in the back. The visitors booked just one away victory so far and they managed to find the back of the net just four times at away grounds so far.
Reims v Toulouse: Head-to-head
Reims managed to beat their rivals just twice in their head to head clashes and the last one took place back in 2014. In the last three encounters, the visitors were better twice while in the last two occasions the crowd was able to enjoy four goals per match. The nets didn’t remain still in most of the cases when these two sides were facing each other.
Reims v Toulouse: Prediction
Although they cannot be proud of the record against their rivals, Reims are in better momentum and they should take advantage of that for putting another good home display. We believe the hosts are more than capable of winning another three points.
We don’t expect this clash to be as efficient as their recent encounters since both sides find it hard to score. This is the clash of two very inefficient sides, and besides that Reims are one of the best defensive sides in the competition. Therefore, this clash should remain under 2.5 margin.
