PSG vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 16 May 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes.
PSG are facing imminent embarrassment. They were knocked out of the CL, and now they are about to lose the Ligue 1. Their only way remains to deliver wins in both their remaining games, and hope Lille to drop points. Against the dismal Reims, expect a huge win for PSG.
As of now, the Parisians are placed second in the table, trailing three points below the first-placed Lille. Since Mauricio Pochettino’s men have a huge lead in goal difference, they would need just the same number of points as that of Lille to lift the title.
However, the toppers are in terrifying form, and seem in no mood to stop anytime soon.
All the defending champions could do now is make sure that they post six points on the board from the last two fixtures, and hope for the best.
Meanwhile, Reims are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment based on recent form.
In fact, they are one of the only two squads in the table to stay winless in the past five games in the league, and they are also struggling to find the back of the net consistently.
In addition, they also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years.
As such, expect a win for PSG this Sunday at their home.
PSG vs Reims: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Pochettino’s men had recorded seven of the former nine overall wins.
- They had scored a total of 26 goals from the last eleven matches.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record barring a single meeting.
- The home team has also scored three or more goals in four of the last five clashes at this ground.
PSG vs Reims Prediction
The Parisians were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day by Rennes. In the meantime, Reims lost 0-1 at home against Monaco.
Going on, Pochettino’s men had won nine of their last fourteen overall fixtures, and they had won three of their former four appearances at home. Note that they had also scored a total of 11 goals in the process.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 13 of their preceding 15 overall games, and they have a total of six wins on the road in the past 16-month period.
Taking into account these observations, expect a huge win for PSG this weekend.
