Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Montpellier play host to Reims at their Stade de la Mosson on day 15 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. La Paillade failed to beat Reims in the previous six meetings between the two sides in the French top flight, and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. Midfielder Joris Chotard is banned for the match, but forward Stephy Mavididi is back after serving a two-game ben.
Les Rouges et Blancs, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Nantes. Reims are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Montpellier, and seeing that the two teams played out a goalless draw earlier in 2022, under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Forward Alexis Flips misses out through suspension, while defensive trio Andrew Gravillon – Maxime Busi – Thomas Foket is injured.

Highlighted Team (Reims):
Reims are a French football club founded in 1931. Reims welcome their rivals at Stade Auguste Delaune, which can hold up to 21,684 people. Believe it or not, Reims won six Ligue 1 titles (1948/1949, 1952/1953, 1954/1955, 1957/1958, 1959/1960, 1961/1962). To make things even better for the fans, Reims participated in the European Cup final on two occasions.
In 1956 they faced Real Madrid in the title game and despite taking the lead after six minutes, the French side eventually suffered a 4-3 loss to los Blancos at Parc des Princes. Three years later Reims had a chance to get their revenge on Real Madrid, but the Spanish giants once again won the European Cup, with Mateos and Di Stefano finding the net in the 2-0 victory over Albert Batteux.
The club’s most notable footballer is Just Fontaine, who scored 13 goals for France at the 1958 FIFA World Cup finals. Reims’ home colours are red and white, with the team wearing white when playing on the road.
