Reims to win @ 21/20 (2.05)
We are tipping a narrow win for Reims in this game. The hosts may have not done well so far at home but they should take advantage of the visitors’ struggling defence. The visitors have found results hard to come by, winning only twice in 10 trips in Ligue 1 so far.
Under 2.5 @ 1/1 (2.00)
While Reims should win this game based on our analysis, it will be a narrow one. They average only 1.1 goals at home. Defensively, the hosts have leaked an average of 1.1 goals on home soil, which makes them hard to break down compared to Bordeaux that has leaked an average of 2.9 goals in 10 trips.

Reims vs Bordeaux Game Preview, Team News and Predicted Lineups
Five wins and nine draws from 22 games have condemned Reims to the 14th spot on Ligue 1 table. The visitors haven’t done well either. Bordeaux has recorded four wins and eight draws from as many matches, a performance that put them nearly at par with the hosts. In this fixture, both sides look to improve their performance to at least secure a place in the top half of the table.
While Reims has scored 11 and conceded 11 goals in 10 home games, the visitors have netted 15 and leaked 29 goals in 10 trips. So, based on these stats, it goes that Reims have not done well in front on fans even though they have tried to keep their defence tight. On the flip-side, Bordeaux has done pretty well in scoring goals away from home.
However, a leaking defence has been the biggest undoing in their 10 trips so far. An average of 2.9 goals leaked in 10 trips and 15 scored means Bordeaux are more likely to concede than score in this game. But because they average at least 1.5 goals in 10 trips, finding the net at least once in this trip is also possible for Vladimir Petkovic and his traveling squad.
On the other hand, the hosts can only hope to exploit Bordeaux’s weak defence in this game even though they average only 1.1 goals at home. We think Reims stand a chance of bagging a narrow win in this game.
Reims will be without 8 players in this game. Konan, Doumbia and Toure have been taking part in AFCON while Lopy, Berisha, Busi, Mutesin and Zeneli are sidelined with injuries. The visitors will make this trip without Traore, Costil, Briand, Lacoux (red card), Mensah and Onana.
Reims predicted lineup: Rajkovic, Busi, Foket, Gravillon, Faes, Abdelhamid, Mbuku, Matusiwa, Cajuste, Locko and Ekitike.
Bordeaux predicted lineup: Poussin, Pembele, Medioub, Mexer, Mangas, Otavio, Fransergio, Elis, Adli, Dilrosun and Hwang.
