Strasbourg vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 9th February 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Strasbourg come into this match in 9th place after they beat bottom club Toulouse 1-0 in midweek. The club have won 3 of their last 5 games to put themselves right in the mix for a Europa League spot. The problem the club has is no consistency.
At home they have won 6 of their 11 games but they did lose their last match here going down to Lille 2-1.
Reims are in 7th but have the same points as their hosts and only goal difference separates the clubs for now. Whilst Reims have lost just 1 game in their past four, their season has been dogged by a lack of goals and draws.
True they did recently beat Angers 4-1 but that was clearly a rare result for the club. Away from home Reims has the 5th best record in the league but they have still lost 4 games. However along with PSG they have the best defensive record away form home conceding just 9 goals so far this season.
Strasbourg vs Reims: Head to Head
Last season in the league it was happy times for Strasbourg who won this fixture 4-0.
From the recent 4 games played at Strasbourg, Reims have just one win.
The last two meetings have had the correct half time score at 0-0 on both occasions.
Strasbourg vs Reims: Prediction
This won’t be an easy game for Reims but we will take the club to win this game because their whole season has seen them winning games away from home where the thinking was that they wouldn’t. The team also left to play at Strasbourg a couple of days before they normally would as they try and create a camaraderie within the team.
European football could well happen for the club and Strasbourg are at this time a direct rival to their dreams.
