PSG look formidable in the French top-flight this season, and they will be looking for a ninth win in ten games this weekend. Reims will be the hosts this weekend, as they search for just a second victory of the Ligue 1 season.
Ligue 1 Preview
PSG look to be in a strong position to successfully retain their Ligue 1 title this term, as they have started the new campaign in excellent fashion. The Parisians already sit two points clear at the top of the standings, as they have won eight of their nine fixtures at the start of the season. They have scored an incredible 28 goals, and have allowed just five.
PSG couldn’t come into this fixture in better form, as they have picked up victories in each of their previous five domestic fixtures. However, that momentum was halted slightly in midweek, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Benfica in the Champions League. But, they were sound winners in their last domestic fixture, beating Nice 2-1 at home. Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe scored the goals in that win.
It already appears as though this will be a difficult season for Reims, as they sit just a place and a point above the relegation places after nine rounds of fixtures. They have picked up just a single victory in Ligue 1 this term, and they have conceded a staggering 19 goals already.
Their recent form also highlights how big of a challenge this is, as they are winless in their previous four fixtures. They were able to end a run of two straight defeats in their previous fixture though, as they earned a 2-2 draw against Troyes. Florian Balogun and Junya Ito scored the goals in that game.
Reims vs PSG Head to Head
PSG has a very strong recent record in this fixture, as they have picked up victories in each of the previous four matches. They haven’t conceded a goal in any of those matches, and were most recently 4-0 winners against Reims in January.
Reims vs PSG Prediction
PSG has a strong record in this fixture, and it is very hard to see that winning run ending given the form that both these sides come into this fixture in. We could see the Parisians claiming a comfortable 3-0 success on the road this weekend.
