Reims take on the visitors Amiens at "Stade Auguste Delaune" in the last gameweek of the French Ligue 2 in the season 2016/2017. The match will be played on Friday, May 19th.
Till the very last rounds Reims contended for promotion to the elite division and it is them to blame for spoiling the chance to return to the Ligue 1. Reims were beaten in their last two back-to-back clashes by Orleans 0:2 and Troyes 0:2 and those losses buried the team’s chances in the tournament. On the eve of the season’s last matchday Reims currently occupy the seventh place in the standings with 55 points gained and 41-37 goal difference. Michel Der Zakarian’s side picked up 32 points in 18 encounters at its home field. Reims’ no-win streak has been lasting since the 10th of March across four matches with only two points earned in them.

Last season Amiens promoted from the National to the Ligue 2. And now, having won their five consecutive clashes with 12:4 aggregate score, “Les Licornes” are the real contender for promotion to the Ligue 1. After 37 gameweeks, Amiens share the second-third places with Troyes with 63 points gained. On the road Christophe Pelissier’s side recorded 29 points taken, 25 goals for and 22 goals against in 18 encounters. It should be noted that Amiens won last two away battles against Brest 3:2 and Sochaux 2:1.
Last time Reims lost to Amiens was in 2009. However, the visitors are now one step away from the historical event as they have never played in the Ligue 1 before and this Friday they are to make this historical step forward.
Prediction for the match: Amiens to win.
