Match preview

The Red and Whites welcome Clermont Foot to the Stade Auguste-Delaune in Reims on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match.

Les Rouges et Blancs come into this match on a run of three home defeats in a row. Reims also lost their last league match away to Marseille. The final score of the match was 4-1.

Despite the scoreline maybe being a little harsh, they looked second best throughout and you feared the worst from the moment Wout Faes scored an own goal in the opening 12 minutes of the game.

Reims may also look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against Marseille in their last league match.

Les Lanciers come into this match on a run of three defeats in a row. Clermont Foot were demolished in their last league match at home to Paris Saint-Germain. The final score of the match was 0-5.

While there is no shame in losing to this stacked PSG side, to do so while failing to have a shot in the box from the 2nd minute onwards will be tough to swallow.

Grejohn Kyei (calf), Mehdi Zeffane (hamstring) and Jason Berthomier are all expected to miss this match for Clermont.

Clermont Foot may also look to shuffle their deck voluntarily after such a heavy defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in their last league outing.
