Olympique Lyonnais vs Reims Prediction 11 January 2019

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Groupama Stadium
Match date: 11.01.2019 at 19:45

On January 11 2019 at 19:45 at the Groupama Stadium in Decines-Charpieu in the upcoming regular match of the 20th game week of the French Ligue 1 the local Olympique are going to play against their guests Reims. This is going to be the match between the ambitious fighters for the Champions League zone and the beginners of the league who managed to take their place in the middle of the standings immediately.

After 18 matches played since the start of the season Lyon have gained 32 points with 30:21 goal difference and now they take the third position in the standings. Yet, in the last month their results got much worse. They only outplayed Saint-Etienne 1:0 and Monaco 3:0 and lost drew Lille 2:2 and Montpellier 1:1 and lost to Rennes 0:2. Moreover, the year 2019 started for them with the kick-off from the Coupe de la Ligue by Strasbourg 1:2.

As for Reims, they are spending their first season in the national elite division after three years long break and they show really good results, in fact. At the moment the Reds are on the ninth place in the table with 26 points gained and 15:18 goal difference. This club chooses to concentrate on defense a lot which gives them their dividends. In the previous game they drew Caen 2:2 while before that they outplayed Strasbourg 2:1, drew Lille 1:1 and Marseille 0:0 and lost to Toulouse 0:1.

Despite the fact that the teams are really different in class, we still don’t think that the match will be very easy for Lyon. Reims are just great in defense and they are even better in defense than they do at home. That is why we don’t expect either team to attack a lot as they will both concentrate on the result on the first place.
