Reims take on the visitors Nice in the round 38 match of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Saturday, May 21th at Stade Auguste-Delaune (Reims)
Based on the standings, Reims doesn’t seem to need anything at the end of the season. But the hosts play for the sake of their own fans, even though they lost almost all the matches to the leaders. Motivation is present, but we can talk about the lack of class. In ten recent confrontations there are only four victories. So being on the 12th line, with a good ratio of goals scored and conceded goals, is quite natural. The hosts lost three times at home in four matches. And not just Marseille. There was another defeat to Lance.

The Eagles lost in the final of the French Cup, lost in the last round to Lille and seem to have lost their chances of getting into European competition. On the other hand, if Marseille beat Strasbourg, then Nice can cling to the Conference League. The loss of points against Rennes is not entirely believable. All Nice needs is just to take the away victory over Reims. The task is not an easy one, and since February, the visitors have somehow learned how to do it on the road. But the opponent has a lot of injured players, the Eagles have three wins in a row before that. They need to prove their class.
You can bet on a clean victory for Galtier’s wards, but it’s not a fact that Reims will be too passive. But in the defeat of such Nice, motivated and eager to try themselves in Europe, I can’t believe it at all. I will assume that the Eagles will at least score points in Reims, another thing is that they may already be useless at the finish line. The game of the first round ended in a goalless draw. Recently, the teams have been playing in draws in head-to-heads. But the Eagles have more chances.
