Strasbourg vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 31st January 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Strasbourg have been in really good form and after a nightmare 2 months and are unbeaten in the league in their last 4 games.
Three of those matches have ended in wins and last weekend the club drew against Dijon with that match finishing 1-1. The club are in 15th and could move 2-3 places up depending on how other results play out.
At home Strasbourg have only won 30% of their games but we shouldn’t take too much notice of this as their recent form has significantly improved and they have won their last 2 games at home beating Nimes and Saint Etienne and they scored six goals in those games.
Reims are in 14th and have the same points as their hosts with only goal difference being the difference between the two sides. Reims form has improved like Strasbourg’s and they have just 1 loss in their last five and last weekend Reims won their sixth game of the season beating Brest at home by 1-0.
Strasbourg vs Reims: Head to Head
- Strasbourg won this fixture 3-0 last season.
- 3 of the last 4 league games has seen just one team score.
- From Ligue 1 games there is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Strasbourg vs Reims: Prediction
This is a tough game for both sides and we don’t expect to see classic. It is a game that could be low scoring even if history says different.
The reason for this is because whilst both sides have shown improvement they are not away from danger of the bottom three and could get sucked in if they have a few poor games.
The best option here is to back the draw, doing this for full time can be risky so let’s pick the draw at half time, where the value is decent.
Strasbourg vs Reims Bet Tips:
Half Time Result: A draw at 2.00 (1/1)
Under 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13)
