Lille hosts Reims in a game from the 17th round
Lille hosts Reims in a game from the 17th round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s examine this clash in our vip soccer bets for today.
Lille are having a wonderful season so far. Right now the Dogs are 2nd in the league, being only behind the absolute dominant in the country PSG. Right now Lille have 30 points won and a record of 9 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats. Their advantage in front of the 3rd Montpellier is one point, but it can be increased if they win against Reims.
In their last game Lille put an end to an unpleasant run of consecutive games without a win. Christophe Galtier’s team visited Montpellier and celebrated an important 1-0 win, thanks to a winning goal from Nicolas Pepe after just 6 minutes of play. This win allowed the Dogs to return on 2nd place in the league standings.
Meanwhile Reims are 12th in Ligue 1 with 21 points won and a record of 5 wins, 6 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five fixtures Reims won twice, made one draw and suffered two defeats, including against Toulouse in the previous round.
Reims hosted Toulouse at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II, but suffered a 0-1 defeat. The only goal in the match was scored in the last minute of the first half by Issiaga Sylla. In the second half Reims tried to fight back and at least equalize, but the visitors defended well and didn’t allow this to happen.
These are our vip soccer bets for the Ligue 1 clash between Lille and Reims at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. We believe that Lille are the favourites here. The Dogs will want to secure a second consecutive win in the league, which would allow them to remain on the 2nd place in the standings.
