Lyon vs Reims Betting Tips

Lyon vs Reims Prediction 1: Lyon to Win

If you look at how the season has progressed so far, it might seem obvious that Lyon will easily win this game. After all, they have won all of their league matches while Reims have lost two and drawn one. However, we have a different perspective on this game. We believe that Reims will put up a strong fight and manage to secure a point.

Lyon vs Reims Betting Tips

There are a couple of key reasons for our belief. Firstly, Lyon has not yet played an away game this season, and towards the end of last season, their performance on the road was not very impressive, with only two wins in their last seven away games. Secondly, Lyon hasn't won a game at Reims since 2015. In fact, in the five times they have faced each other at Reims since then, they have notably drawn each of the last three matches.

Lyon vs Reims Prediction 2: Under 2.5 goals

Reims has been the home team in the most recent head-to-head encounters, and given that none of the last four matches of this type have exceeded that threshold, it makes sense to start this under 2.5 goals prediction there. Recent results are less persuasive for an under 2.5 prediction, but Reims went under 2.5 in their most recent game, and considering that they'll likely aim to frustrate Lyon tonight, we think it's the best value wager as well.

Lyon vs Reims Best Tips From Betimate

  • Lyon 2-0 Reims

If everything plays out as expected, Reims will undoubtedly find it difficult to overcome a Lyon squad that will almost surely control this game. At the conclusion of the match, Lyon won convincingly 2-0.
