Reims vs. Lyon Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
Reims vs. Lyon
Fabio Grosso, who began his tenure at Lyon with a loss, is determined to correct the errors from last weekend as Les Gones take on Reims at the Stade Auguste-Delaune this Sunday.
Reims suffered a 1-0 defeat to early high-flyers Brest in their previous outing, whereas Will Still’s team secured a 2-1 victory over Lille on Tuesday.
On their third attempt, Reims finally secured three valuable points in September, following a 2-2 draw with Metz and a 2-1 home defeat to the red-hot Brest team before the international break.
Reims vs. Lyon
Their visit to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to face Lille resulted in quick goals from Mohamed Daramy and Keito Nakamura, who scored within four minutes of each other, with Nakamura’s goal coming from a beautiful passing sequence. However, Benjamin Andre’s 79th-minute header made for a tense finish.
Reims goalkeeper Yehvann Diouf found himself in a difficult position as the Lille captain scored, but the hosts couldn’t mount a comeback in the remaining time. Still’s team continued their early push for European qualification.
What to remember – Reims vs. Lyon
With Lyon struggling to make an impact in the attacking third, the absence of Lacazette, even though he has only scored once this season, will further challenge Grosso’s quest for his first Lyon victory. Reims, while inconsistent at home, have shown their ability to capitalize on opportunities, and they have the potential to extend Lyon’s struggles with a fourth win of the season.
