Next Wednesday at 7:00pm GMT, on matchday 7 of the Ligue 1, we will see Lille play Reims at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.

Currently sitting in eleventh place, Reims will travel to Lille, who are four·places lower in the League and sit in fifteenth place.

With the Ligue 1 season well into its stride, Lille have managed to gain five points

A loss to RC Lens away, and then FC Lorient at away is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the Ligue 1. Lille will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Lille have a huge task to over-turn their rivals in this game, having already lost two games this season. Their position is fifteenth in the League, and they have five points having won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost three fixtures.

Lille have won one game and lost one game of their two League matches at home this season.

Victory for Lille would take their points tally to 8 so far this season.

Going into Wednesday’s game, Jocelyn Gourvennec without three of his players, due to illness or injury.

This season’s Ligue 1 campaign, has so far seen Reims achieve seven points

Reims will be hoping for a win, following a disappointing 0-0 home draw against FC Lorient in their last game.

With four draws in six fixtures, Reims need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. They currently stand eleventh in the League, with seven points having won one game, drawn four fixtures, and lost one game.

Reims will travel to Lille with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory and two darts.

Winning this fixture will see Reims on 10 points.

It is likely that four key players will miss Wednesday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Oscar Garcia and his Reims team.

Lille v Reims – Head-to-Heads.

When these two sides meet, a draw is never usually the expected outcome. In the past 17 matches, Reims have won seven victories and Lille six wins. Their most recent encounter in this competition was January 2021 and the score line ended up with a 2-1 away win for The Red and Whites. With both sides conceding goals in their most recent game together, the probability of both sides scoring on Wednesday is 49.02%.

The probability of a Lille win is 58.48 percent.
