Reims vs. Lille OSC Match Analysis and Prediction

Rivals Reims and Lille face off when they meet at the Stade Auguste Delaune in round 33 of the French Ligue 1 in Wednesday’s game, with a kickoff at 8 pm.

On Sunday afternoon, Montpellier and Reims ended their winless runs when they drew 0-0 in the Stade de la Mosson.

Montpellier have not won any of their last three games—they lost to PSG and Nantes in that time—but will be happy to take away a point from a game against third-placed Reims.

Oscar Garcia’s men are 13th in the Ligue 1 table, one place above where they finished last season.

This weekend, they play bottom club Lille, who have beaten Reims three times in their last four meetings, including a 3-2 victory at the Stade Pierre Mauroy earlier this season. With six games left, Lille are two points above the relegation zone with just two wins from their last nine games.

Elsewhere, Lille is sweating over recent results. They were beaten 2-1 by Lens in a thriller at the Stade Pierre Mauroy on March 25.

Polish striker Przemyslaw Frankowski and Arnaud Kalimuendo scored for the visitors before Xeka halved the deficit on the stroke of halftime.

Lille have now failed to win any of their last three games; they have picked up just two points from a possible nine since beating Nantes 1-0 on March 19.

Reims Team News

Reims will be without French teenager Hugo Ekitike, who picked up a hamstring injury in February. He is also joined on the club’s injury table by Anastasios Donis, who is set to sit out his fourth game on the trot.

Lille Team News

For Lille, Gourvennec will miss key defender Sven Botman, who has been out with a muscle problem since March’s Champions League match against Chelsea. In addition, goalkeeper Ivo Grbic is sidelined with a collarbone injury, while defender Gabriel Gudmundsson has also been ruled out by an injury he suffered at the weekend.

Prediction and Odds

Gourvennec’s players have endured an underwhelming title defense so far, but we think they will return to winning ways on Wednesday.
