Lille – Reims Predictions

  • A return of just two losses so far this 2020/21 Ligue 1 (L1) campaign (W11, D6, L2) has taken Lille to within a point of top spot. A lot of that has to do with their habit of scoring first, which they’ve done in a league-high 73.68% of their top-flight fixtures this campaign (W11, D3). In turn, they have returned a superb HT record of: W10, D6, L3.
  • The hosts were one of just two L1 sides yet to lose a home match (W6, D3) when they suffered a 2-1 home loss in their last league outing here. That result also continued a recent trend too, as four of their last five L1 home fixtures – goalless draws excluded – have witnessed all of the match goals arrive inside one half.
  • A run of five games without defeat (W3, D2) has pulled Reims clear of the relegation battle for now. Much of that success has been built on quick starts, which has seen Reims score first within 20 minutes on three occasions during that run, and they have not conceded before the 70th minute across the last three.
  • Scoring first should be a priority, as the visitors have lost just one of the last 20 away league games in which they netted the opener (W10, D9, L1). A fast-paced start could be on the cards too, considering that the opener has been scored within 30 minutes in all but one of Reims’ ten top-flight road trips so far.
  • Players to watch: Lille’s Jonathan Bamba has been the game’s first scorer in four of his five goalscoring league games this term. Reims’ own danger man could be Boulaye Dia, who has scored four goals across his last five L1 appearances, with three coming before HT.
  • Hot stat: Just one of the last 17 top-flight H2Hs has witnessed the away side on the day score before HT.
