Betting Tips for the game
Reims’ form over the past two months has been a complete mixed bag with four draws, four wins and two defeats in their last ten games across all competitions. The good news is that Reims have been a strong side on home soil of late, having won three of their last four league outings. This leaves Reims 8th in the Ligue 1 table, just four points behind the top four.
Caen, on the flip side, have endured an awful run of form over the past three months, winning just two of their last 15 competitive fixtures. They were winless in ten games across all competitions prior to their 2-1 home victory against Toulouse on Wednesday. The most worrying thing is that Caen are winless in seven competitive trips at the moment, although they drew the most recent three of these.
Reims looked impressive on home soil recently, so our betting tips and predictions expect Reims to win at odds 1.80.

Reims are the 8th best home team in the division at the moment, having collected 15 points from their nine league fixtures. Although they are winless in the last three home meetings with Caen, Reims looked more than decent on home soil in Ligue 1 over the past few weeks. They face a Caen team that have lost four and drawn three of their last seven competitive trips. Our preview anticipate Reims to win at odds 1.80.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Three of Reims’ last four games in Ligue 1 have ended with under 2.5 goals. On the flip side, Caen have netted just six goals in their nine league trips so far this season. In addition, the previous meetings between these two sides haven’t been very exciting, with four of the last five fixtures being low-scoring affairs. Our total goals prediction fancies under 2.5 goals at odds 1.53.

First Goalscorer odds
Mathieu Cafaro seems to be Reims’ in-form player at the moment, as he has scored twice in his last six Ligue 1 appearances. Cafaro is now the team’s joint top scorer with three goals under his belt. Our first goalscorer prediction is Mathieu Cafaro at odds 7.50.
