Nantes managed a 2-3 victory on the road at Strasbourg last time out, thanks to goals from Lucas Evangelista and Emiliano Sala, along with an own-goal from Stefan Mitrovic. On the other hand, Reims have suffered a narrow 0-1 home loss at the hands of Montpellier two weeks ago, in a game in which they had a better ball possession and over 20 goalscoring attempts.

Betting Tips for the game
Nantes have finally got to winning ways last time out in Ligue 1, having won 3-2 away at Strasbourg. The bad news is that Nantes have won just once in their last seven home fixtures in Ligue 1. However, Nantes’ home record against Reims have seen them win three and drawn three of their six meetings.
Reims, on the flip side, managed to win two consecutive games in this early part of the season, but they have lost their most recent two. The positive thing is that Reims have been a decent side on the road, having lost three of their last 15 trips. Furthermore, Reims have won two of their last three meetings with Nantes in Ligue 1.
