Reims host Angers at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II on Saturday night, with both aiming to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Reims only managed a nil-nil draw on the road at Nimes last time out in Ligue 1, in a game in which they had just two shots on target. On the other hand, Angers threw fought back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Strasbourg thanks to goals from Pierrick Capelle and Romain Thomas.

Betting Tips for the game
Reims started the season with two consecutive wins, but they are now on a seven-game winless streak in the league. This leaves Reims only 17th in the league table tied on 10 points with other four sides, just four points clear of the bottom three. The positive thing is that Reims are now back on home soil where they have lost just once in the last seven games across all competitions.
Angers, on the contrary, have enjoyed a strong run of form in Ligue 1 over the past month and a half, having lost just once in their last six games. They are winless in two league outings at the moment, but they did well to fight back from two goals down to salvage a point from their 2-2 home draw against Strasbourg. Angers have been decent on the road recently, winning their most recent two league trips.
Although Reims are winless in seven league games at the moment, they managed four draws over the past month and we fancy them to get all three points from this one. Our betting tips and predictions would back Reims to win at odds 2.10.
