La Paillade lost their last league match away to Olympique Marseille. Expected goals of 2.8 to 0.5 in favour of Marseille indicates perhaps it was a fair result.

The Red and Whites also lost their last league match at home to Stade Rennais FC. Expected goals of 2.6 to 1.1 in favour of Reims indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match. Moussa Doumbia missed a penalty for Les Rouges et Blancs15 minutes from time. When another was awarded a few minutes later, Jens Cajuste took over penalty duties to get the score back to 2-3. Sadly, they couldn’t find the breakthrough to complete the comeback and this was how it ended.
After his penalty miss, it remains two years since Doumbia last scored for Stade Reims. He is 8/1 to end his long scoring drought with a goal against Montpellier HSC on Sunday.
