    France Ligue 1

    (203217) Stade Reims at (203218) Lyon

    Well, assuming this game goes as scheduled, which is behind closed doors and no fans, I like Lyon here at home.  Reims is actually ahead of Lyon in the table, but Lyon is the more talented team and should win this matchup more often than not.  I would have avoided Lyon here normally as they had a Champions League match scheduled for this upcoming week against Juventus, where they lead 1-0 after the first leg, but that has been postponed and now they can focus entirely on this match which is needed for them as they need to make a run at the end of the season to qualify for European football next year.  

    At home, Lyon was unbeaten in nine straight matches before losing to PSG in the Coupe de France last week.  They were tied 1-1 in the 60' before Marcal was sent off with a second yellow card.  PSG then proceeded to open up a can of whoop ass on Lyon the rest of the way to win 5-1.  But point being, Lyon has been playing very well at home including that 1-0 home win over Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League matchup.

    Reims is obviously not nearly the same caliber team as a PSG or Juventus and they have just two wins in their last ten road games.  They have also lost three of their last four trips to Lyon.  These teams played to a 1-1 draw at Reims back in December, but Lyon was the better team in that match and Dembele missed a late penalty that would have won it for them while Reims' only goal was a converted penalty right before halftime.  I think we see Lyon control this match and the chances.

    TAKE LYON TO WIN (ML or -0.5)
