Betting Tips for the game

Nice have struggled towards the end of the previous Ligue 1 season, and that costed them a place in the Europa League this term. The main problem is that Nice have also had problems during their pre-season campaign, winning just once in five friendlies. That’s mainly because they have sold two of their last season’s best player this summer in the shape of Alassane Plea and Jean Michael Seri.

On the flip side, Reims have had an amazing Ligue 2 campaign last year, winning the title with 15 points more than the runners-up Nimes. Reims have been in good shape in the pre-season, losing just two of their six friendlies. They have already beat two Ligue 1 teams in their recent friendlies, which gives them a good chance here against Nice.

With Lille having lost some key players this summer and Reims being in good shape at the moment, we fancy the newcomers to secure at least a draw here. Our betting tips and predictions fancies Reims or Draw at odds 1.95.
