REIMS VS MONTPELLIER PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Reims holds the advantage of playing at home at Stade Auguste-Delaune in this match. Surely they are having a lot of confidence when welcoming Montpellier.
Reims’ form in the last 5 matches: W W L L D
On the opening day, Reims had a trip to Nice’s home ground. Not as highly rated as the opponent, so it is not surprising that Reims suffers more inferiority in ball control time. That number of the away team is only 39%. Besides, Reims also only launched 5 shots. So the goalless draw is also considered a success for coach Óscar García’s students.
However, it should be noted that Reims’ performance is on the decline. 2 is the number of wins Reims has had in the last 5 games played. However, after defeating Chambly 2-0, Les Rouges et Blancs had 3 consecutive matches with all draws and losses. If the situation is not improved soon, Reims is unlikely to win the second round.
Montpellier’s form in the last 5 matches: W L W L L
Montpellier did not play too well away from home if looking at last season. With 19 matches away from home, this team only got 7 wins. The corresponding win rate is 36.8%. In contrast, Montpellier drew 8 and received 4 defeats. So the total away score of Les Pailladins last season was 29. With what this team is showing recently, the upcoming away match will not be easy.
Right on the opening day, Montpellier had to receive defeat at the Stade de la Mosson. Welcoming Marseille, Montpellier soon took a 2-0 lead in the first half. But the bad defense made the students of coach Olivier Dall’Oglio lose 2-3 backward.
