The presentation of Reims – LOSC
Duels still undecided
In recent years, it has been difficult to give a prediction in the meetings between Reims and LOSC. For what ? Quite simply because the record in history is strictly equal between these two teams. Each of the teams gleaned six wins, not to mention four draws. Recently, during the 17th day, Rémois and Lille had left on a draw at Pierre Mauroy. For the Mastiffs, Jonathan David had scored the only goal for his team. Last season, Reims and Lille secured a success each, on the North side for the outward journey and on the East side for the return. Despite the latest trends, nothing seems settled for tomorrow’s match, even if the stakes for Lille are numerous.
Five things to know before Reims – LOSC
What about the Lille midfielder?
This is the big question mark for this trip to Reims. Which midfielder will Paulo Fonseca favor? Absent for personal reasons against Ajaccio, Benjamin Andre should be reinstated. Author of a double, Andre Gomes could complete the pair in the middle. But then, what aboutAngel Gomes ? Indeed, the English should start replacing, and this, because Jonathan Bamba could be renewed on the offensive left side. In defense, Jose Fonte will return alongsidealexander sandro to form the central hinge. For this Reims – LOSC, no other changes should occur, with executives like Remy Cabella Or Jonathan David present.
