Lille vs Reims Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

  • Lille claimed a 1-0 win against Reims when the pair met for their reverse league fixtures in August
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in each of the club’s last six meetings in Ligue 1
  • Lille sit 19pts and 11 positions above Reims in the Ligue 1 table

Lille to Claim all 3pts at Home to Reims this Weekend

Lille kept the pressure on Lyon and PSG courtesy of a 1-0 away win against Nimes last time out. Mid-table Reims made it five games without defeat as they secured a 3-1 home win over Saint-Etienne last weekend, but 11 positions and 18pts still separate the hosts from Sunday’s guests. Lille have already beaten Reims once this season when Jonathan Bamba scored the only goal at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II back in August.

When these two teams have gone head-to-head in recent seasons, the matches have always been closely fought and low-scoring. Each of the last six league meetings between Lille and Reims have produced under 2.5 goals and both clubs have picked up two wins, two defeats and two draws during that period.

With four wins, one draw and one defeat from their last six league games, Lille head into this weekend’s clash as the form favourites. Reims have been in decent form themselves but remain the underdogs for Sunday’s contest. Three of Lille’s last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals as have two of Reims’ last four outings, so you can see why we’re expecting another closely fought 90-minutes on Sunday.

We’re predicting a win for the home side this weekend and have backed a final scoreline of 2-0. Lille have outperformed Reims this season and already have one win under their belts against Sunday’s guests. However, Reims haven’t conceded more than two goals in any of their last six matches, but the home side have looked strong at the back with three clean sheets in their last five attempts. All of which makes an end result of 2-0 look likely.
