One of the heavyweights of the French football’s Ligue 1, FC Lyon, will be traveling to Stade Reims in what will be either team’s second game of the season.
FC Lyon won their first game of the season comfortably. They were flowing and showcased a brilliant exhibition of attacking football. Not once did the team appear to not be in control of the flow of the game, and this is a big statement from this side who has been hovering to grab the UEFA Champions League spot. They will be looking to cause more troubles for their competitors in this 2018/19 season.
Meanwhile, Stade Reims are a team who are known to grind out results. They don’t have a superstar in their roster to drive them, but exceptional mentality. Manager David Guion has done well with this team, and they are troublesome opposition to face for anyone in the Ligue 1. They will be eyeing a European spot for the next season, and the hustle to achieve that goal will begin by winning games such as these.

Gambling India Info Match Prediction FC Lyon vs Stade Reims –
We expect FC Lyon to win this game and make it two wins out two for them at the start of the new season of the French Ligue 1.
Against all the odds, Reims managed to beat Patrick Viera’s Nice 1-0 in the last game despite seeing just 29% of the ball. So we are not expecting the home team to make a substantial change in their playing 11. As a result, South Korean striker Hyun-jun Suk, who joined from Troyes in the summer, may have to wait for his competitive debut.
For Lyon, Fernando Marcal is expected to miss this match due to a calf injury despite recently returning to training.
While World Cup winner Nabil Fekir only just returned to training and may not be deemed fit enough to feature in this game.
Lyon Goalie, Anthony Lopes is suspended for this match.
