Lens vs Reims Prediction 16 December 2023

Lens take on the visitors Reims in the round 16 match of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Saturday, December 16th at Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens).

Lens approaches the upcoming match in a good mood. Earlier this week, under Frank Haise's guidance, they defeated Sevilla at home, preventing the Spaniards from entering their beloved Europa League, and they will play there themselves in spring. Moreover, things are going very well for the Blood and Gold in the country's championship. They haven't suffered any defeats since mid-September, with six victories and four draws in the last ten rounds. In the last four league matches, the team secured three victories against Marseille (1-0), Clermont (3-0), and Lyon (3-2). I believe that in the match against Reims, who have historically been a favorable opponent for the hosts in recent years, Lens can emerge victorious.

Reims are a neighbor to Lens in the standings and even have one more victory in the championship. However, while Will Still's team looked great in the summer and the first half of autumn, they have significantly declined since then. In the last four Ligue 1 matches, the team suffered three defeats. Although two of them were against top-3 teams, Nice (1-2) and PSG (0-3), they also managed to lose to Rennes (1-3), a team that currently looks weak and is in the lower part of the table. In addition to these losses, Reims have been defeated by Monaco, Marseille, and Brest this season. I think after the upcoming round, the vice-champion of the country, Lens, will be added to this list.

Despite both teams having an equal number of points at the moment, I consider the hosts as favorites in this encounter. After a dreadful start, Lens have been unbeaten in the championship for ten consecutive rounds. In the last four, they have earned 10 points out of 12 possible. Last season, only PSG performed better than the Blood and Gold in Ligue 1. Currently, Lens looks strong at home too, securing four victories and one draw in their last five matches at their home stadium. I believe the hosts will not share points with Reims, who are clearly on a downward trend. In the last five head-to-head meetings, the Red and Whites lost four times to the Blood and Gold, including an away match last season.

Prediction for the match: Lens to win.
