We offer a forecast for the match of the French championship, in which Reims will host Lorient on 17 October. What to expect from the underdog battle? – the answer is in our material.
Last season, Reims performed very successfully and managed to take the sixth final place, which brought a ticket to the qualification of the Europa League. If in the first round of selection for the UEL group the “ red-whites ” defeated “Servette” (1: 0), then at the second stage they left the rally, losing to the modest “Fehervar” (0: 1 pen.).
David Guyon’s charges failed to start the new season . After six rounds, the team drew only twice, which brought two points and the penultimate place in the standings. In the last duel, the hosts unexpectedly took away points from Rennes (1: 1).
Due to the busting of cards, Manetzi will not be able to play .
“ Lorient ” in the last season of Ligue2 gained maximum momentum, and four defeats in five matches at the finish did not prevent the team from winning this championship and reaching the elite division. In the debut match of the tournament, the Merluses outplayed Strasbourg (3: 1), but then everything did not go as the fans of the club expected.
For five rounds Christophe Pelissier’s charges unexpectedly drew with Lyon (1: 1) and lost four matches, losing in the last round away to Metz (1: 3), for which we gave a forecast.
Le Goff , Marveaux , Saunier and Homavu will not be able to take part in today’s game .
Opponents have lost 3 of their last 4 matches
Lorient have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches
Reims won 6 of their last 10 home games
The last personal match ended with the victory of “Lorient” (1: 0)
01/29/18 Reims Lorient 0: 1
08/26/17 Lorient Reims 2: 1
The teams had a disgusting start in the new season, but if the hosts gave part of their strength to the qualifications of the Europa League, Lorient is still looking for their game.
In our opinion, today we will face a meeting of rivals of equal strength, the outcome of which can be decided by only 1-2 goals. Most likely, it will not do without goals, as opponents concede more willingly than scores, on which we propose to play a bet.
Our prediction is that both will score and we bet on this on the line of BC Fonbet with odds of 2.10
