In that match, Lille had 57% possession and 14 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. For Lille, the scorers were Angel Gomes (68') and Mohamed Bayo (93'). Clermont Foot got 9 shots at goal with 3 on target.
Paulo Fonseca's Lille have found the net 11 times over their preceding six outings. The corresponding tally of goals that have been scored against them in those games is 5.
Coming into this contest, Lille are unbeaten in their last 5 league matches at home.
Reims will go into this match following a 3-1 Ligue 1 win to beat Rennes in their last outing.
In that game, Reims managed 33% possession and 10 shots at goal with 4 on target. For Reims, the goalscorers were Folarin Balogun (6', 84') and Alexis Flips (22'). Rennes got 11 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Arthur Theate (45') was the scorer for Rennes.
A run of steadfast displays from the Reims defence has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their previous 6 fixtures combined. In that time, their forwards have scored 7. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, however.
Looking over their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 07/04/2019 shows us that Lille have won 3 of these games and Reims 2, with the tally of drawn games being 1.
A combined sum of 14 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 7 of them for LOSC and 7 netted by Les rouges et blancs. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.33.
The last league game featuring these sides was Ligue 1 match day 33 on 20/04/2022 when it finished Reims 2-1 Lille.
In that game, Reims had 41% possession and 10 shots at goal with 4 on target. The goalscorers were Marshall Munetsi (32') and Yunis Abdelhamid (92').
At the other end, Lille had 20 shots on goal with 5 on target. Renato Sanches (57') scored.
I am thinking that Lille will, in all likelihood, be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the same time, Reims may well find it hard to score although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage here.
My tip is for a comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Lille at the conclusion of the game.
