Lille vs Reims
Date: 22 September 2021, Wednesday
Kick-Off: 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy
Lille take on Reims on Wednesday evening at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy as the hosts look to get their second win of the season as they begin their climb up the points table.
The hosts who were last year’s Ligue 1 champions have not got off to a good start in their domestic campaign this season as they are currently sitting in 15th position in the table with 5 points on board after 6 league games as with 3 losses, 2 draws and 1 win.
The home side come into this fixture on the back of a 1-0 loss away from home to Lens which saw Lens’ midfielder, Przemysław Frankowski score a 74th minute goal to sink Lille.
In that game Lille had 54% ball possession with 6 shots on goal with just 2 shots on target compared to their opponents 13 shots on goal with 4 on target. This goes to show that Lille are finding it difficult to create and score goals so far this campaign.
The visitors currently sit in 11th position in the table with 7 points in the bag after 6 league games with 3 draws, 1 loss and 1 win.
The away side come into this fixture on the back of a 0-0 draw at home against Lorient. That game saw the hosts in that fixture have 42% of ball possession along with 10 shots on goal with just 2 on target.
The week before that, Reims won 2-0 away from home to Rennes in a game which saw goals in each half. Hugo Ekitike opened the scoring in the 26th minute of the game as substitute, N’Dri Philippe Koffi scored a goal in the 67th minute of the game to seal all 3 points for Reims.
Lille vs Reims Head-to-Head
- These two sides have faced each other 16 times in all competitions.
- 40 goals have been scored in this fixture.
- 5 goals are being scored per game in this fixture on an average.
- The previous meeting between these two sides saw Lille win 2-1 last season.
Lille vs Reims Prediction
The hosts are expected to win this game even after they have got off to a poor start this campaign along with a poor run of form where they have not been able to manage victories given the standard and quality that they have.
However, we back the odds at 1.75 for the hosts to win as it is about time that they turn the fortunes of their season in order to play European football next season.
Consequently, we have seen in the head-to-head statistics as well as the current Ligue 1 season that Lille are not good defensively. As a result, we back the odds at 1.95 for both teams to score.
