It is clear looking at these Lyon vs Reims odds that the hosts are the expected winners, though not by too big of a margin, especially considering their recent run of form and six wins in their last seven league games.

On the other hand, Reims have traditionally fared well against Lyon and they remain four points ahead of them in the standings at this point, so it makes sense not making Lyon a huge favourite in this game.

In the last five duels, Lyon only managed to beat Reims once, along with a couple of draws and two wins for Reims. Surprisingly, the situation is the same for their overall H2H record, with Reims having the lead here as well – 30-16-17.

Lyon preview: As hot as they can be at the moment

With six wins in their last seven Ligue 1 matches and 12 wins in their last 15 games in all competitions, Lyon have managed to completely turn their season around after spending some time in the relegation zone as well. At the moment, they are 10th in the standings and if they can keep winning, we might even see them get involved in the battle for European football.

When it comes to team news, Orel Mangala remains out with an injury and Clinton Mata will miss this match to serve a suspension.

Reims preview: Still in the top half of the standings

Despite their shaky and inconsistent form recently, Reims are currently 9th in the standings in Ligue 1 and they are still in pursuit of a place in Europe for next season. However, a loss to Lyon would put a big damper in those hopes, so this is a crucial match for Reims.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Stambouli, Teddy Teuma, and Maxime Busi are out with injuries, while Thibault De Smet is suspended.

Player to watch: Alexandre Lacazette

It's hard to go with anyone else as a player to watch from this Lyon's team since Lacazette scored 13 goals in the Ligue 1 and the next best scorer in the team has four goals.

Will Lacazette again do well against Reims?

In his 11 duels against Reims so far, Alexandre Lacazette has managed to score five goals, so it won't be surprising at all seeing him find the net against this team once more.
