Lyon and Reims are playing against each other in a match of round 20 of Ligue One. Over the week The Kids were knocked out in the ¼-finals of the French League Cup after a defeat at home against Strasbourg with 2-1. In the league, Lyon are on the third position, with two points behind the second team – Lille, but with a game less. At home, The Kids are underperforming and have just six wins in ten fixtures.
Reims didn’t play during the week and will be feeling fresher than their opponent on Friday. The guests have played just one game in 2019 – victory with 2-0 versus Lens for the League Cup. Reims have improved their performance and recorded only one loss in the previous six fixtures in Ligue One.
In the recent months is hard for Lyon to achieve a victory in the league. The Kids have won just half of the previous ten games in Ligue One – three of them were against Angers, Monaco and Guingamp. On the other hand, Reims’ form in the recent fixtures is impressive. The guests have shown that they are not afraid to play against the top teams of France and were unbeaten in their two away fixtures in December against Lille and Marseille. We expect similar development on Parc Olympique Lyonnais and new failure for The Kids.
