Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lorient will be aiming to overtake PSG in top position in the standings when they welcome Reims to their Stade du Moustoir on Saturday afternoon. Les Merlus are having a perfect start to the season, with the team sitting in second place, only one point behind star-studded league leaders PSG, and they are surely capable of beating les Rouges et Blancs on home soil. A man to watch in the home team will be Nigeria international Terem Moffi, who scored a brace in a 2-1 win over Brest, while Laurent Abergel has joined Gedeon Kalulu and Adil Aouchiche in the recovery room.
Reims, on the other hand, are on a five-game winless run in the French top flight. Even though Oscar Garcia’s men managed to hold Messi-less PSG to a goalless draw at the weekend, we are tempted to put our money on the in-form hosts this time out. As for the away side, Junya Ito has yet to serve his ban, while all Jens Cajuste, Maxime Busi, Rafik Guitane, and Thomas Foket should miss out with injuries.
