Reims vs Olympique Lyonnais Prediction 17 August 2018

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade Auguste Delaune II
Match date: 17.08.2018 at 19:45

On August 17 2018 at 19:45 at the Stade Auguste Delaune II in the upcoming regular match of the French Ligue 1 the local Reims are playing against Olympique Lyonnais. Both teams started their ways in the national championship with victories and this time they will have a chance to prolong their series. Lyon have really high class while Reims are playing at home this time.

In the first game of the season the Red and Whites unexpectedly outplayed rather solid Nice away from home with 1:0 score. They scored a fast goal and then got back to their defense and kept the winning score till the very end. In the previous season Reims won the Ligue 2 showing similar performance and using those same tactics. So, the grands may have a lot of problems playing against the beginners of the national elite division.

As for Lyon, they outplayed Amiens without any serious problems in the first match as they scored a goal in each of the halves. During the preseason campaign the Turners were participating in the International Champions Cup and had a good chance to prepare for the upcoming season. Yet, they will probably get closer to the top of their performance closer to September when they will have to start participating in the Champions League.

Lyon are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match and yet they aren’t the obvious ones. It seems to us that it’s going to be really open football where they will both hope for the positive results.
