Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
In-form PSG will be aiming to overtake Nice in top position in the standings when they take on Reims in a highly-anticipated Ligue 1 game. Les Parisiens faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over Montpellier at the weekend, but les Rouges et Blancs are tough to beat at home. Vitinha is pushing for a recall to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the last league fixture, while both Randal Kolo Muani and Achraf Hakimi are banned for the match, while all Danilo Pereira, Keylor Navas, Marco Asensio, Sergio Rico, and Nuno Mendes continue to miss out with injuries.
Reims, on the other hand, are eager to represent France in European competitions next term. William Still is doing a great job with the Stade Auguste-Delaune outfit and seeing that his men are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. As for the home side, Teddy Teuma is sidelined through suspension, while the likes of Munetsi, Diakite, Edoa, and Nakamura are out of contention with injuries.
