Sports betting enthusiasts may find a lucrative bet on Reims over Montpellier. Despite the draw against Nantes, Reims’ has managed to be included in the league’s top ten 10. 

Match Date: 01 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune II

Team Form


Reims went down to the 8th spot of France’s top-flight league after Nantes held them to a scoreless stalemate.


A little bit of disappointment lingers within Reims’ camp when they were unable to clinch a victory against Nantes. Instead of improving their rank, they even went down. However, the good side of it was that they are in a much better rank today than yesterday. In addition, it is much better to score a single point than to go home defeated. At any rate, Reims current form is still, a strong one.


To note, they have only lost once in their last six (6) matches and if they become more consistent, they have better chances of making a stronger finish in this season.



Montpellier’s 3-1 thrashing of Nice earned them their second consecutive win and propelled their rank to the 15th spot. The said victory can serve as the club’s catalyst as they visit Reims and move farther away from the relegation zone.


The above-mentioned triumph plays a significant role in Montpellier’s survival. Their current  rank does not immediately save them from exiting Ligue 1 since the season has not yet ended. Therefore, it is only fitting for the squad to get the upper hand against Reims or at the very least, force a draw.


To emerge as the victorious one is not impossible for Montpellier. Their form is also in tiptop shape. Like their upcoming rivals, they too, have only lost once in their recent matches and who knows, they might even score for their third straight victory.


Online betting’s top pick:  Reims

Reims get the advantage as they are playing in their own territory. Yet, they cannot dismiss the fact that Montpellier also poses the threat of forcing them to settle for yet another draw.
