Competition: France League Cup
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet 365
Two sides who have their sights set on landing a quarter-final spot of this year’s Coupe de la Ligue, Reims will welcome Montpellier to the Stade Auguste-Delaune on Tuesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, picking up another three points away at Toulouse over the weekend, Reims are continuing on what has been a stellar run of form nearing closer to Christmas. Along with catching the eye in their thumping 3-1 win over Saint Etienne earlier in the month, Head Coach David Guion has seen his side lose just one of their last 10 appearances, a run that stems back to the 28th of September. Arguably Ligue 1’s surprise package this season and sat within touching distance of breaking into the top-four, there is no doubt that the mood around the Stade Auguste-Delaune remains at a continued high. Also continuing to shine on home soil, Reims are unbeaten in any of their previous six appearances in front of their own supporters.
As for the visitors, while the mood in Reims’ camp might be continuing to soar, Montpellier find themselves in the midst of a real sticky patch. Hit with back-to-back defeats against Lille and PSG, they have recorded just a single victory in any of their previous five outings and have begun free-falling away from the European positions. Although Head Coach Michel Der Zakarian has seen his side manage to find the net in each of their last four matchups on the bounce, La Paillade have continued to show some glaring issues at the back. Now shipping at least a pair of goals in their last four appearances, they have also failed to record a single away victory across any format since opening the new campaign.
Bet: Both teams to score at Reims vs Montpellier 11/10 for Tuesday’s France League Cup tie @ Bet 365
