Reims vs. Lille Match Analysis and Prediction

Two sides who are eager to earn their first win in Ligue 1 in the 2020-21 campaign lock horns this weekend. Europa League destined side Reims will be playing host to side Lille. The match schedules for Sunday at the Stade Auguste-Delaune with kickoff at 2 pm.

Reims kickstarted their new campaign in Ligue 1 with a 2-2 draw to side Monaco. The same was replicated by their opponents Lille with a 1-1 stalemate against rivals Rennes in a heated encounter.

Reims started their first match of the season on a high note with two goals before the half time whistle. It was disappointing at the end of the last whistle with both sides sharing spoils with a two-goal comeback by Monaco.

David Guinon might have taken the disappointing results with mind fixed on high flying Lille this Sunday. One thing both sides share is their automatic qualification for the Europa League before the season curtailment.

The clash of the first week for Lille was a dramatic affair that saw the ref raise two red cards. After a horrific boot to defender Reinaldo, it led to a direct red card to Sacha Boey. As fate would have it, Reinaldo received a red card after a foul on Raphnha. Their recent histories show that both sides will not share spoils this weekend at the final whistle.
