Strasbourg vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 3rd April 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Reims is just three points away from a spot in the Europa playoffs and has done enough justice to their top-tier placing. They are unbeaten in their last five league games, and with Marseille, their closest competitor, taking on Bordeaux this week, has a good chance to climb a spot higher this Wednesday with a win.
Strasbourg is at the other end of the spectrum, compared to Reims’s recent form. The former is winless in their last five league matches and has fallen out of the equation for a playoff finish at the end of the season. Their recent string of winless matches has been the main culprit.
Strasbourg vs Reims Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last six matches in a row had goals from both teams.
- Reims has been unbeaten for the last ten years.
- Only once has a game at this venue failed to produce goals at either end of the pitch.
- Five of the last six meetings had over 2.5 match goals.
Strasbourg vs Reims Prediction
Reims is winless in their last straight 15 games and remained so in 27 of their last 30 attempts. They have also avoided a loss in their last eight away fixtures in succession. On the other hand, Strasbourg is on multiple winless streaks overall, as well as at home. The team avoided a win in their last eight matches, and in the last four at home.
Importantly, for the last ten years, Reims has never lost against this opponent. And with Reims furiously chasing a spot in the playoffs, expect them to extend their unbeaten streak against Strasbourg for one more match-day.
Strasbourg may be struggling for a win, but their offense has been making good returns. They found the back of the net in 21 of their last 22 home ties, and in 20 of their last 25 overall fixtures. Furthermore, the last six h2h games in a row also had the same stat to show.
Count on these two spirited sides to produce a match with goals at either end of the pitch.
