The Lyon vs. Reims match will be played on Friday, January 11, at the Groupama Stadium, Lyon. Lyon is currently 3rd on Ligue 1 table with 32 points, while Reims is 9th with 26 points at the moment. Lyon has a game in hand.
In their previous ten meetings, Lyon recorded six victories, while Reims won four matches. It is interesting that we never saw a draw in the matches between these two teams, since Reims achieved promotion to Ligue 1 in 2012 for the first time in the 21st century. In six out of those ten games one team didn't score a single goal.
Lyon board is happy with the season so far, but they have an ambition to finish second, behind PSG. Lille is two poins ahead of them at the moment, but Lyon has a game in hand. Lyon must win all home matches against the teams from the bottom and middle of the table in order to fulfill their season goal.

Reims is currently 9th, but with only six points less than Lyon. With the eventual victory, Reims might even get into the race for the top six, but it is unrealistic to expect. They will certainly be happy with a mid-table finish.
