Reims welcomes Strasbourg in a match from the second round of the French Ligue 1
Reims welcomes Strasbourg in a match from the second round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s discuss this clash at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II in our winning football previsions.
Reims had a fantastic start of the new season, managing to beat Olympique Marseille at the legendary Stade Velodrome. Andre Vilas-Boas’ debut for Marseille went pretty bad, because Reims won this game with 2-0. Both goals were scored after the halftime break, when Boulaye Dia and Suk Hyun-Jun put the ball in the net behind Steve Mandanda’s back.
Arguably Olympique Marseille were the big favourites in this match, but we shall admit that Reims did a terrific job at the Velodrome. Can they actually keep this level of performance? It’d be curious to see this.
In the same time Strasbourg kicked off their Ligue 1 season with a home draw. Thierry Laurey’s boys hosted Metz at the Stade de la Meinau, but the game ended with a 1-1 draw. Adrien Thomasson opened the score for Strasbourg, but Metz’ Mouhamadou Diallo equalised just two minutes after the halftime break.
Meanwhile Strasbourg continue to perform successfully in Europa League. The French side qualified for the playoffs of the competition, eliminating Bulgarian side Lokomotiv Plovdiv after two 1-0 wins. Just few days ago these two teams met at the Stade de la Meinau and Strasboug won the game with a winning goal from Kevin Zohi after just 7 minutes of playing.
These are our winning football previsions for the Ligue 1 clash between Reims and Strasbourg on Sunday. The hosts are feeling very confident right now after their terrific win against Olympique Marseille. This is going to be their first home game for the season, so they will want to do well in front of the fans. But Strasbourg are having a better match practice at the moment, so let’s see.
