Valenciennes vs Reims (By: Alcuni)
Valenciennes – Reims
After beating Lorient on the road and achieving border of 40 points, Valenciennes saved from relegation playing without any emotions in previous 2 rounds and taking 2 draws, both 2-2 after some spectacular games. Actually were their 3 game ended 2-2 in last 4, being a team who can be trusted in terms of goals. They were for most of the season a team with plenty ups and downs, mainly due to high number of missing players most of them being injured for long period of times. Playing against top teams usually put a strong defense trying to get a point but, in the rest, played quite open with many overs during season. For this last game at home from actual season Ramare will miss due suspension. Nery and Nangis will miss for various reasons.
Reims dominated the season, being the best team in the Ligue2 assuring the championship and promotion long time ago finishing the season. They established already a record in terms of point won in a edition with 20 teams, previous record of 83 points being now history. Still 6 points to add to this tally and for sure they will try to catch the 90 points border. Not the best finish of the season to do this but in the remaining games will not be necessarily “ accident” like in previous one, lost 0-1 at home against playoff chaser LeHavre, Valenciennes and Nimes ( perhaps will obtain promotion this round) being with their objectives already achieved. For sure the last round versus Nimes will be a “regal” face to face being the most offensive teams in Ligue 2, both scoring each 69 goals in 36 rounds ( aprox 2 goals/game). Jeanvier will miss due a recent injury.
In the last 5-6 years no champion of Ligue2 lost more than a game in last 3 rounds, keeping at their blazon. Reims is better team and should have at least the motivation to bringing the record regarding points won in 38 rounds as high as possible, No doubt at the spectacle will largely contribute Valenciennes, playing last game at home, so I see a Reims win and BTTS. gl
