Reims – Clermont Preview: Latest Form, News, and Potential Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Reims vs Clermont lineups.

Reims

Reims were unfortunate to lose 1-2 on their visit to Marseille last weekend. The display was pretty decent and Reims deserved at least a point for their efforts. Ito was a major threat in this match and he scored the goal. 

Reims are desperate to win soon as dating back to last season they have now lost 7 of their last 9 league matches. 

The main left-back De Smet and the useful midfielder Keita are ruled out due to injuries. Man City’s loanee Wilson-Esbrand had a shaky debut in round 1 but he could be given another chance from the off now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Diouf (GK), Foket, Okumu, Abdelhamid, Wilson-Esbrand, Richardson, Matusiwa, Ito, Munetsi, Khadra & Diakite 

Clermont

Clermont began the new season with an unpleasant 2-4 home defeat vs Monaco. The defensive concerns for the Lancers everyone talked about before the start of the campaign were on plain view in that match and Clermont could have easily conceded 2-3 more goals. 

Star centre-back Caufriez remains sidelined so the issues in defence remain. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Diaw (GK), Seidu, Wieteska, Pelmard, Zeffane, Gonalons, Gastien, Borges, Cham, Allevinah & Kyei

Player to Watch: Junya Ito

Reims rely heavily in attack on the speed and agility of their Japanese winger Junya Ito. Ito was involved directly (goal or assist) in 56% of the goals scored last season. He already netted his first goal of the new campaign in round 1 and Ito’s form suggests that he will be in the thick of the action again vs Clermont.
