Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 2
Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune (Reims)
Not exactly one of the more notable provinces in France, the city of Grand-Est will be buzzing when Lille come around town for a crunch Ligue 1 clash this weekend. Reims had a brilliant season last term, proving to be streets ahead of many other sides in the cluster.

Their imperious run of form saw Les Rouges et Blancs finish sixth on the standings after garnering a whopping 41 points from 28 games. Qualifying for the group stages of the Europa League, they were one of the few sides that benefitted from the abrupt end to the 2019/2020 season.

Meanwhile, Lille will be a little disappointed with their run the previous season, missing out on Champions League football by a whisker. With a new season already up and running, Les Dogues will be gunning for a bright start to get their campaign off to a flyer.

Reims vs Lille Team News

Watching this Reims side play always leave us at a loss for words. These players who have got a great understanding of one another on-the-pitch know exactly how to win games. When the Red and Whites hit top-gear, they are almost impossible to stop.

Interestingly, Reims had been wallowing in the lower echelons of French football just few years ago, having recently gained promotion to Ligue 1 in 2018. However, since moving up, they have adapted to top-flight football quite quickly.

Under the tutelage of the experienced David Guion, the Red and Whites made the cut for Europa League football having finished sixth last season. Looking to build from where they left off that time, Reims made their bow for the new campaign with a fixture against tricky side Monaco.

Headed into the game as huge underdogs, Guion’s charges laid blood and sweat bare on the pitch to secure a positive result. Racing to a two-goal lead early on, a second-half capitulation saw them relinquish their head-start to play out a 2-2 draw in Monaco.

Lille, on the other hand, were faced with the difficult task of overcoming a stubborn Rennes side at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy last time out. Even without their former talisman Victor Osimhen, Les Dogues were desperate to begin their campaign on a winning note.

In a game marred by a succession of fouls from both teams, Lille’s Bamba fired his side ahead just before half-time, forcing Rennes’ manager to tear-up his pep-talk sheets. Struggling to hold on to their narrow lead, Da Silva hit the target on 74 minutes to condemn Galtier’s men to a draw.

Although a difficult result to take, Lille will be delighted with the point they salvaged in that frantic game. With another tricky game against Reims on the horizon, Les Dogues have yet another chance to grab their first three points of the juvenile season.

The home side will be feeling very confident ahead of this fixture, thanks to their strong record on this ground. From their previous ten home games, Reims have suffered defeat only once. Also, they lost just twice at home throughout last season.
