Reims

Capable of being online betting’s top picks, Reims and Bordeaux shall engage in a tight match that will not only ensure a stronger finish, but also a chance to participate in the European competition. 

 

Match Date: 15 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune II

Team Form    

Reims

A win at Roudourou did not only propel Reims rank to the  7th  spot, but also opened the possibilities of making it to the European competition.

 

What looked to be an unlucky day for Hubert Fournier turned out to be a blessing in disguise. After granting Guingamp the lead via an own goal by Anthony Weber, the club returned to its winning ways when Odair Fortes and Floyed Ayite scored the match’s winning goals.

 

With the said result, Reims is now five (5) points behind the coveted appearance in the Europa League. But before they achieve such success, they need to be more consistent with their performance first, as clubs such as Lyon and Marseille are also eager to make their presence felt in the international scene.

 

Reims’ first step to the European appearance begins with a match against Bordeaux. They will face the club with a satisfactory team form that is consists of two (2) losses, three (3) wins and a draw.

 

Bordeaux

Les Girodins slumped to the 8th spot of the table after a late rally from current table leaders, Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

 

Goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alex settled the score for Bordeaux. The incumbent champion’s strong second half  forced them to wave the white flag and endure another defeat.

 

But despite the defeat, Bordeaux is not necessarily a weak opponent and this is something that Reims should be wary of as they are more than ready to unleash their frustration on the pitch.

 

Bordeaux currently sports three (3) losses, two (2) wins and a draw. This may not be the best form, but given the fact that they are still one of the clubs to make it to the league’s top 10, makes them a strong contender. Moreover, just like Reims, Bordeaux also entertains the idea of clinching a spot in the Europa League.

 

Prediction:  Draw

Both clubs eye for a strong finish this season and it is less likely for them to throw the white towel first. Given this aspect at hand, there is a high possibility for this club to end in a down the wire stalemate.
