📏 Form Guide

Reims, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-2 Ligue 1 success versus FC Lorient.

In that match, Reims managed 48% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 2 on target. For Reims, the scorers were Arber Zeneli (17') and El Bilal Touré (59'). At the other end, FC Lorient had 20 attempts at goal with 8 on target. Terem Moffi (32') scored for FC Lorient.

It has been all too rare in recent times that Reims have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Reims have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 7 goals along the way. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, of course.

Heading into this fixture, Reims have not registered a win against RC Lens in their last 3 league matches.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that RC Lens:

  • have not won against Reims when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

👥 Head to head

📋 Team News: Reims

Hugo Ekitike (Hamstring Injury), Moreto Cassamá (Injury to the ankle) and Jens Cajuste (Hamstring Injury) won’t be able to feature for Reims boss Óscar García.

ℹ️ Team News: RC Lens

Owing to a fully healthy group to choose from, the RC Lens manager Franck Haise does not have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this game. Jean-Louis Leca will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

🧠 Prediction

Reims will really need to work well to hit the back of the net against this RC Lens outfit who we reckon will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.

Therefore, we predict a good battle with a 0-1 winning margin for RC Lens when the full-time whistle blows.

There should be little in it.
