Reims – Lyon Preview

  • A return of just one loss from their previous eight Ligue 1 (L1) outings (W3, D4, L1) has pulled midtable Reims clear of the relegation fight for now. Much of that success has been built on quick starts, which have seen Reims score 41.18% of their league goals in the opening half hour, helping them return a positive HT record of: W9, D12, L7, across the season.
  • Though failing to score in 53.85% of their L1 home games so far, the hosts are now on the verge of registering a ninth top-flight home game without a loss for the first time in the club’s history (W3, D5). To achieve that, they may have to keep it tight late on, as Reims have conceded 66.67% of their L1 home goals after the hour mark.
  • Sitting just outside the league’s top two, Lyon’s 1-0 home win in their previous top-flight outing made it just one loss from their previous eight L1 matches (W6, D1). They have been particularly efficient just before the break, scoring nearly a third (32,14%) of their league goals this campaign during the 31st-HT period.
  • Having picked up an average of 2.07 points per L1 away game ahead of this round (W8, D5, L1), the visitors travel here as the division’s joint-second best away side (in terms of average points). A good start could be key here, as eight of the nine teams leading at HT in their away matches this L1 season have gone on to win the game (W7, L1).
  • Players to watch: Reims’ Arbër Zeneli has scored the game’s opener in two of his previous three L1 starts. The battle to see who will score first could also involve Memphis Depay, who has been Lyon’s first scorer in five of his last six goalscoring league matches.
  • Hot streak: The previous five L1 H2Hs held here have witnessed the opening goal scored within 35 minutes.
