With one draw, which followed a defeat, Reims’s recent form has not been great. They will be looking to return to winning ways in this next match.

Also, with one draws in one game, Reims need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With a nineteenth position in the league and 0 wins, 2 losses and 1 draws, they currently have one point in the League having drawn one game and lost two fixtures.

Playing at home, Reims have lost one game.

Reims will have 4 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Reims may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Lyon have six points to their name, going into this tie

Lyon will be full of confidence, going into this fixture on that back of two successive wins against Troyes and AC Ajaccio. They will need this if they are to retain their run.

Also, another fixture and another win for Lyon, winning is becoming habitual for them and this is the mark of a team. With six points, they currently sit fourth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws having won two games.

Lyon will have 9 points if they manage to secure a victory.

It is likely that four key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Peter Bosz and his Lyon team.
