Lyon look to bounce back from a loss to St Etienne when they host Reims at the STade Garland, a win for Lyon can bring them back up to third and into the Champions League places. Lyon have won seven of eight at home this season and have the topscorer in the league in lacazetter who has netted eleven. Lyon have a solid team and can close the gap on Marseille and PSG who both dropped points on Tuesday and Wednesday respecitively. The injured Gourcuff will be missed as his inspirational play around the midfield. Lyon though have had a tough run of late dropping points in their last two but this game represents an opportunity to get back to the top three.
Reims are on a decent run of form themselves unbeaten in four and will look to continue that run when they visit Lyon. Reims though have struggled all season on the road with just one win. Goals have been the problem for Reims with only sixteen goals in fifteen games and a -6 goal difference. Moukando has netted five for Reims this season. Reims have drawn their last three away from home can they continue that run in Lyon?
I cant see this one being a high scoring game. Lyon have struggled a little offensively of late and Reims just dont score a lot especially away from home. I am taking the unders here in a game that I can see lyon winning but just dont like the value on their price.
