Lens vs Reims Prediction: Ligue 1 Match | 12.05.2023

There will be interesting action in Ligue 1 on Friday evening, as Lens look to enhance their chances of a Champions League finish. The hosts could also close the gap on PSG at the top of the standings with a fourth straight success against Reims.

Ligue 1 Preview

It has been an excellent season in France for Lens this term, and they look set to end their long wait for a Champions League spot. They boast an incredibly strong advantage with four games remaining, as they sit eight points clear of fourth-placed Monaco. Lens also come into this Friday fixture in excellent recent form, as they have won each of their last three matches.

They picked up a massive victory in their previous outing, as they managed to secure a 2-1 home success against third-placed Marseille. Seko Fofana and Lois Openda netted the goals in that pivotal win in the race for a Champions League spot. In fact, Champions League qualification could be effectively secured this weekend if they are able to record victory against Reims and results go their way.

It has also been an excellent season in Ligue 1 this term for Reims, as they have already secured their survival. However, they endured a miserable run of form prior to last weekend, which ended any hope that they could end the campaign in a European spot. But, Reims were able to get back on track, as they registered a hard-fought 1-0 home success against Lille. 

The only goal in the win was scored after just 21 minutes, as Marshall Munetsi scored the crucial effort. Reims perhaps should have won by a wider margin, as they registered four shots on target. 

Lens vs Reims Head to Head 

Lens has an excellent league record against Reims, as they are unbeaten in the previous seven clashes. However, over that period, they have secured just three wins. The previous meeting between the sides this season ended in a 1-1 draw in September. 

Lens vs Reims Prediction 

This should be an entertaining clash between the sides on Friday evening, with both looking to build on recent victories. However, Lens can almost taste their Champions League qualification, and we expect them to take another stride toward achieving that goal with a victory on Friday.
