Match Preview

  • Ahead of kick-off, 75% of Amiens’ four Ligue 1 (L1) wins, and both of their L1 cleansheets this season have come at home, with the hosts scoring in all but one of their nine home league games. Amiens should still be ever-cautious though, with six of their last eight L1 home matches witnessing goals at both ends.
  • Second-half performances remain Amiens’ primary concern, with 25 of their 38 L1 goals against conceded after the break. Unsurprisingly, Amiens remain bottom of the second-half L1 table, but their fixtures are still full of goals, with 42.11% of their L1 games (eight of 19) witnessing over 3.5 total match goals.
  • Reims, contrastingly, have seen only two of their 19 L1 matches finish with over 2.5 total match goals. Indeed, only five of Reims’ L1 matches this season have yielded goals at both ends. Scoring first remains a game decider in any case, as the winner in 11 of Reims’ 12 L1 results (excluding the draws) netted first.
  • Impressively, Reims have managed to keep a first-half cleansheet in 14 of their 19 L1 fixtures this campaign, and in turn, nearly half (nine) of Reims’ 19 league fixtures this season have stood goalless at the break. Continually placing defensive diligence as a top priority, Reims are also yet to concede a penalty in L1 this season.
  • Players to watch: Stiven Mendoza has been Amiens’ first scorer with four of his five L1 strikes, which has been the case with three of Reims man Boulaye Dia’s five L1 goals.
  • Stat attack: Amiens are currently averaging 3.58 corners per game – the lowest in L1.
  • Reims haven’t drawn a L1 away match when entered as betting outsiders this term (W3, L3).
  • Nearly a third (five) of Reims’ 16 L1 goals have been scored beyond the 80th minute.
