Montpellier HSC vs Reims Tips and Prediction

At the beginning of the season, Reims was leaking goals at will, giving up 19 in their first nine games while only collecting seven points.

However, the Red and Whites’ fortunes have drastically changed after William Still took over as interim manager in place of fired manager Oscar Garcia.

They have sacrificed fluidity for solidity under Still, as seen by two 0-0 ties and two one-goal victories.

In Garcia’s final game in command, they absolutely ought to have defeated Paris Saint-Germain as well, but they could only muster another tie.

However, they have safely retreated from danger after scoring nine points and giving up only one in their last five games.

Reims will concentrate on preserving their current mid-table position in the second half of the season because they have little hope of qualifying for European football with their 11-point deficit.

Montpellier has had a whirlwind start to the season, winning 7-0 and 3-2 and losing 5-2 and 4-2. Currently, they are in a serious rut.

Giving Romain Pitau the position after letting Olivier Dall’Oglio go after a loss to Lens in the middle of October had no effect.

Their first season-opening draw with Clermont last week did break a five-game losing streak, but La Paillade has fallen down the standings after earning only one point out of a possible 18.

At the Stade Gabriel Montpied, they were incredibly fortunate to earn the point as well because their opponents missed two penalties.

Montpellier should take a page out of Still’s book and realize that being open and expansive is not the be all and end all of football. This season, only Troyes’ games have featured more goals than Montpellier’s, but that is not earning them many points.

This is further demonstrated by the fact that the bottom-placed teams Troyes and Angers are the only ones to have given up more goals.


Reims has a strong chance to come here and win because of their dramatic improvement in form and newly discovered defensive sturdiness.

Despite their problems at the back, Montpellier has continued to play quite well offensively, which could be enough to earn them a point.
