Lyon vs Reims Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Lyon can bounce back from their defeat at Lille when they host Reims in a French Ligue 1 fixture at the Groupama Stadium. Les Gones have claimed some impressive home wins in recent weeks and should have the edge over Reims who often struggle on the road.

Lyon Form

Lyon are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Lille in their previous Ligue 1 fixture. They were not at their best but created chances, the best one falling to Bertrand Traore who blazed over the bar late on.

Les Gones will be pleased to return to the Groupama Stadium where they are unbeaten in nine of their last 10 matches. Rudi Garcia’s men will take confidence from wins over Marseille and Saint-Etienne while a 1-0 Champions League victory over Juventus is also among their recent home results.

Moussa Dembele will be the one to watch for Lyon having scored six goals in his last nine Ligue 1 matches. He usually has support from Karl Toko Ekambi who has also impressed lately. 

El Bilal Toure is expected to lead the line for Reims but the striker has scored just one goal in his last three matches and is likely to find things difficult at the Groupama Stadium.
