Servette has already dealt with one opponent in qualifying, but whether Reims will become the next victim of the Swiss – we have prepared our prediction. Who will be stronger?
Servette last season fully justified the forecasts of the fans – Alain Geiger’s team got a ticket to the European competition. The “pomegranates” came to the finish line on the fourth line in the table, ahead of “Lugano”, “Lucerne” and “Zurich” in a bitter struggle.
In the new season, Servette has already managed to play one official match – in the Europa League they managed to deal with Ruzomberok without any problems, three unanswered goals were shipped to his goal.
Reims became one of the main surprises of the last season in the French Ligue 1 – at the time of the stoppage of the championship, the team of David Guyon was in sixth place in the table, thus ending up in the Europa League.
The new season is not very successful for the red-whites – after a draw with Monaco (2: 2) in the first round, Reims suffered two defeats from Lille and Angers with the same score 0: 1 and went to 16th place in the table.
Servette conceded more than one goal in only one of their last four games
Reims have scored in only one of their last three matches
Reims conceded more than one goal in only one of their last seven matches
Reims made it to the Europa League at the end of last season, where they were distinguished by an extremely reliable defense – Guyon’s men at the time of the stoppage of the championship had the best defense of the tournament, conceding only 21 goals in 28 matches. The emphasis on defense will obviously be made by the French and today, Servette will also play cautiously, given the format of one match, so you can hardly count on a scoring extravaganza.
We believe that the match will not be effective. Forecast – total under 2.5 goals . In BC Parimatch such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.67
