Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Reims will look to recover from a 2-0 loss to Lens when they take on Le Havre in the Ligue 1 round 17. Les Rouges et Blancs have recorded four wins at home so far this season and they are seen to pick up all three points from Wednesday’s clash as well. All Maxime Busi, Marshall Munetsi, and Josh Wilson-Esbrand are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The visitors, meanwhile, did well to beat Nice 3-1 in their last league match, with the team climbing to top ten, but seeing that they have recorded only one win on the road this season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Forward Samuel Grandsir misses out through suspension, but he should be the only absentee in the visiting team this time out.
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.
