Recommended bets

This probably counts as a bogey team for Reims who they have often struggled against in Ligue 1. Sang et Or won 2-0 when the teams last faced each other back in October. This leaves them chasing a first league double over Reims since the 2008/09 season. Reims haven’t won a top-flight match against Lens since the 1970s. Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Stade Reims 0-1 RC Lens and is available at odds of 7.5/1.

Alternatively, you can bet on any Reims win at 3.2/1 against Sang et Or at home on Sunday.

Or, back any away win for Lens at 2.23/1 here at the Stade Auguste-Delaune.

You can find odds of 3.3/1 for any draw between Reims and Lens on Sunday.

Match Preview

The Red and Whites welcome RC Lens to the Stade Auguste-Delaune on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Reims have nothing really to play for and look set to finish the season comfortably in midtable regardless of the outcome here. Lens will be hoping the teams above them can stumble in the remaining games this season which would allow a strong end of the season run from them to close the gap and sneak into contention for the UEFA Europa Conference League place next season.

Stade Reims come into the match having picked up seven points from a maximum of 18 from their last six matches.

Les Rouges et Blancs won their last league match away to FC Lorient. Expected goals of 1.7 to 1.4 in favour of Lorient indicates Reims didn’t deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. Predrag Rajkovic was the man to thank in the Reims goal, making seven saves including one big chance to keep Lorient from adding to the scoreline. The final score of the match was 1-2.

Their opponent on Sunday, RC Lens, come into the match on a run of five league games undefeated. They have picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Blood and Gold shared the points in their last league match at home to FC Nantes, in a four-goal thriller. Expected goals of 1.8 to 1.3 in favour of Lens indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match. To come back from two goals down with only ten men on the pitch was a mammoth effort. The late equaliser came when Sang et Or were awarded a penalty with ten minutes to go which Arnaud Kalimuendo Muinga stepped up to convert for his side. The final score of the match was 2-2.

Kalimuendo Muinga is RC Lens’s top scorer with eleven goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 3/1 favourite to score against Stade Reims on Sunday.

Stade Reims team news

Hugo Ekitike (hamstring injury) will be unavailable for The Red and Whites due to injury on Sunday.

Stade Reims are likely to stick with a winning team after beating FC Lorient in their last league match. Although, Kamory Doumbia’s assist for the winning goal off the bench will tempt the manager into starting him here.

RC Lens team news

The red card shown to Jean-Louis Leca in their last league match against Nantes means Lens will now be without him for today’s match. Wuilker Fariñez looks set to replace him between the sticks.

RC Lens may look to shuffle their deck voluntarily having drawn against FC Nantes in their last league match. Arnaud Kalimuendo Muinga’s goal off the bench as well as three shots and a key pass in just 25 minutes should earn him a start.
