Reims will be hoping to continue their excellent start to the new season this weekend, as they look to stretch their unbeaten run to four matches. Meanwhile, Brest will be looking for a first win in two on Sunday.
Ligue 1 Preview
A lot of confidence will be taken from the start to the season that Reims have made. They have won two of their opening four matches, which currently sees them sit in fourth place in the Ligue 1 standings. A victory this weekend could see them end the weekend in the Champions League spots.
Reims have scored eight goals across their opening matches, meaning that only Monaco have found the net on more occasions so far this term. However, they will be looking to get back on track on Sunday, as their two-game winning run was halted with a draw. That tie was picked up on the road against Metz, as Teddy Teuma had put Reims ahead in the second half, only for Metz to level the scores with half an hour remaining.
Brest only sit a couple of places below Reims in the current league standings, as the visitors sit sixth after winning twice in their opening four matches. However, they come into this weekend looking to get back on track after failing to win each of their last two matches in the French top flight.
But, they were able to avoid losing back-to-back fixtures in their most recent match, as they held Rennes to a goalless draw before the international break. Neither side did enough in that match to win maximum points, but the better goalscoring opportunities did fall the way of Brest in the second period.
