A huge defeat to Lyon pressures Montpellier to steal the spotlight against Stade de Reims. Many are waiting to see the adjustments that the club shall observe in its attempt to heal a wounded ego.

 

The contenders

Stade de Reims

The online betting favorite, Reims was able to jump into the league table’s 14th spot after netting an equalizer against Nantes. The club is on its way to recovery after suffering two (2) consecutive losses. They were able to snatch a win prior to the Nantes stalemate and while it is true that ending a match in a draw was the least of its expectations, Reims nonetheless, did an impressive job rather than leave the match without grabbing a single point.

 

Montpellier

Rolland Courbis refused to comment on the outcome of Montpellier’s match against Lyon and chose to focus on their opponents instead.

 

Last week,Montpellier suffered a 5-1 thrashing from Lyon, which caused a drop in its Ligue 1 ranking. Courbis, instead of sharing commentaries regarding his team’s performance, chose to praise his opponent instead.

 

Montpellier fell out of Ligue 1’s top ten (10) after the said defeat.

 

Possible head turners

Reims ‘s trusted midfielder, Diego could readily feature in the upcoming match. His seemingly unstoppable attack on the pitch makes him a dangerous force that could be lethal to Reims’ existence.

 

Prediction

Stade de Reims 1-1 Montpellier
