Reims hosts Saint-Etienne in a match from the 33th round of the French Ligue 1
Reims hosts Saint-Etienne in a match from the 33th round of the French Ligue 1. We are going to examine this clash on Sunday evening in our predictions football 1×2.
Reims are having a good season. They are 7th in the league with 48 points and a record of 11 wins, 15 draws and 6 losses. In their last five games in the league Reims won only once – against Nantes, made three draws and suffered one defeat.
In their last game David Guion’s boys visited Monaco at the Stade Louis II and fought for a point. The game ended with a 0-0 draw, which was a second consecutive draw for the visitors.
Right now Reims are just 3 points behind the 6th Montpellier, so they can even improve their position in the standings.
In the same time Saint-Etienne are doing even better. They are 5th in the league with 53 points. Their record in the league goes like this: 15 wins, 8 draws and 9 losses. In their last five games Saint-Etienne are doing pretty good – three wins, one draw and one loss.
In their last game in the Ligue 1 Jean Louis Gasset’s boys enjoyed a 3-0 win over Bordeaux at home. Wahbi Khazri opened the score via a penalty kick, while the right back Mathieu Debuchy surprisingly scored two goals in the last 15 minutes of the game.
Saint-Etienne have a realistic chance to overtake Olympique Marseille at the 4th spot. They are currently just one point behind the former European champions, so a win against Reims woud allow them to return at the 4th place.
That’s our predictions football 1×2 for the Ligue 1 fixture between Reims and Saint-Etienne on Sunday evening. These two teams are both performing pretty well in the league this season, so it shall be a competitive game.
