Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Reims will be looking to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Montpellier when they host Strasbourg at their Stade Auguste-Delaune on day 9 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Les Rouges et Blancs produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, but it has to be noted that Montpelier finished the match with ten men on the field. A man to keep an eye on in the home team in Sunday’s clash against Strasbourg will be Senegal attacker Boulaye Dia, who scored a hat-trick at the weekend.
Le Racing, on the other hand, did well to roll over Brest 3-0 on the road in their last league match. Strasbourg quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Lyon, and given their attacking potential, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score this time out.
