Team Form


Lille just missed the opportunity to dominate Ligue 1 when a stronger Paris Saint Germain forced them to settle for a draw. However, no matter how disappointing the result was, Lille will eventually use it as inspiration to succeed over Reims.

Lille almost got the better of PSG if not for Marko Basa’s own goal, which permitted the latter to equalize. But the damage is already done and the club needs to shift their focus to Reims.




In terms of the rank alone, Lille’s strength is already evident. They have won four (4) of their last six (6) matches. Preventing them to seek their redemption seems impossible. The figures already present an exemplary performance, which is further strengthened by their six (6) consecutive home victories. Lille know that Reims is a formidable force to reckon with. Thus, one can only expect the club to unleash a demolition job.



Reims is one of the worthy opponents that Lille will encounter. Although they are on a lower rank, it cannot be denied that they are still, part of the league’s top ten. Moreover, their current team form also speaks well of their abilities.


To note, Reims won three (3) of its last six (6) matches, not bad, considering the tight competition in the league. However, to win over Lille, Reims must overcome their opponent’s home court advantage if they want to win in the upcoming match.


Online betting top pick: Lille

Lille’s impressive home performance shall be their main strength in the match. Yet, expect Reims to put up a great challenge to the club.
