Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Reims play host to Toulouse at their Stade Auguste-Delaune on day 20 of the 2023/2024 Ligue 1 campaign. Les Rouges et Blancs aim to move closer to the Champions League berth and they will not have a much better opportunity than this to return to winning ways. Oumar Diakite is back to contention after Ivory Coast suffered elimination in the Africa Cup of Nations last 16, while the likes of Ibrahim Diakite, Yunis Abdelhamid, Amir Richardson, Junya Ito, and Keito Nakamura are still on international duty.
Les Pitchouns, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Lens, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on Reims. As for the visiting side, Frank Magri is back from the Africa Cup of Nations, while both Logan Costa and Moussa Diarra are still on international duty with their respective national teams. Both Denis Genreau and Zakaria Aboukhlal are injured for the visiting side.
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.
