When examining this match, it is clear that both teams are on a fairly even playing field, especially given their recent form.

Goal difference in favor Reims speaks of a slight superiority in attack, but when examining the matches in detail, both teams had their ups and downs.
A game Lille against Rennes (draw 2:2) shows that they are not coping with the defense against mid-level teams. The 4-1 defeat to Lorient further highlights the fragility of the defense, but the 2-0 win over Nantes highlights the team's ability to keep clean sheets at home.
Concerning Reims, then their victory over Montpellier (3:1) is a clear sign of attacking skill, but defeats by Marseille (2:1) and Brest (2:1) indicate some inconsistency in actions.
The statistics of their meetings are also indicative. In the last five meetings Reims won three and Lille won two victories. The last one is 1:0 in favor Reims. This may be a psychological advantage Reimsbut the game is on the field Lille can even out the situation.
