Stade de Reims and Lille will both target their first Ligue 1 victory since early March this weekend, in a clash between two of last season's top-six sides. After the pair were held to frustrating draws against AS Monaco and Stade Rennais respectively last week, can either side prevail here?

Three of their last four H2H meetings have produced 1-1 draws, so it's fair to describe this as a tightly-contested clash. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Reims vs Lille Betting Tips

Reims were 2-0 up before half-time against Monaco, yet found themselves forced to share the spoils last Sunday. Goals from transfer-linked Benoit Badiashile and Axel Disasi – who spent four years at Reims before £11.7m move this summer – sunk the visitors' hopes of victory.

There's something to be said when two centre-backs score in the same game, but they were contrasting finishes. Disasi didn't hesitate to celebrate against his former club, flicking on Aurelien Tchouameni's headed pass to halve the deficit in first-half stoppage-time.

Then, Badiashile showed the composure of an ice-cool finisher to control and let fly from close-range after Aleksandr Golovin's inswinging free-kick. Both goals were preventable from Reims' perspective and they'll look to mark tightly from set-pieces here, though Lille have a myriad of tricky players that need attention.

Jonathan Bamba, Lille's goalscorer against Rennes last week, will be itching to continue his encouraging form of late. Ikone and £24.3m summer signing David are among those who need to perform after indifferent displays last Saturday.

Central midfield tandem Xeka and Benjamin André were among their better performers – the latter limped off late on and is doubtful to feature. With Boubakary Soumare and Luiz Araujo among those ready to deputise in the Frenchman's absence, will that impact their chances here?

Reims vs Lille Correct Score Predictions

Interestingly, Reims lead the H2H against Lille – six wins, four draws and four defeats in 14 previous meetings.

There hasn't been a goalless draw between these two and that's unlikely to stop here, in a match both will fancy winning. For that reason, I'm going safe with BTTS.
