Important information about Reims vs Nantes

A hard-fought battle is in the offing

Reims is content to build its ranking in Ligue 1 by taking one point at a time. Literally. Playing so many draw games reveals their tactics which complements the way this team was built. Reims has at least one important player that seems to excel among the average ones. Folarin Balogun, a 21-year-old center forward who was loaned by Arsenal, scored seven goals this season which is impressive when it comes to the strength of the French league with the team he is playing for at this point. Unfortunately for the hosts, they have availability issues for this game. At least four players are injured while Bradley Locko is suspended, it is going to be a tough challenge for coach Will Still to find players that will make sure Reims are competitive this weekend.

Reims predicted starting 11: Diouf, Flips, Gravillon, Abdelhamid, De Smet, Matusiwa, Lopy, Ito, Doumbia, Zeneli, Balogun.

Nantes has its issues, they are circling the relegation zone, but they are gaining some confidence after going undefeated in their last three matches. Playing away from home has been a struggle for coach Antoine Koumbare's side, they are the only team in the league without an away win. They do have three draw games in the process. The problem for Nantes in that aspect is how many goals they allow. The average is above two per game which is an important part of their season. They don't play offensive football, but somehow their back line is struggling to keep opposition forwards at bay. Reims should be a different kind of opponent as they don't expect much of attacking football.

Nantes' predicted starting 11: Descamps, Merlin, Pallois, Girotto, Centonze, Moutoussamy, Chirivella, Simon, Sissoko, Blas, Ganago.

Team News:

Reims: Marshall Munetsi, Maxime Busi, Rafik Guitane, and Thomas Foket are injured, while Bradley Locko is suspended.

Nantes: Kader Bamba is suspended.
