The best thing about Reims is that they never give up regardless the minute, the score and the opponent. Reims play until the final whistle no matter what and believe in their chance. It happened in the first round when Reims won away at Bordeaux thanks to two goals scored in the last 10 minutes, and it also happened last round when they drew 2-2 at Toulouse after being 2-0 down.
Those performances are the reason why Reims are 3rd in the table after five rounds. This can prove to be the perfect moment for Reims to take on PSG seeing the confidence level is at maximum and there are no new injuries.
It was surprising to see PSG conceding twice on home ground, especially after they have managed to keep clean sheets in all games so far (drew 2-2 against Bordeaux last week). Trapp kept a clen sheet in Champions League but opponents Malmo were mostly kept at distance by the solid midfield and defense (PSG won 2-0).
All the efforts of Cavani and company were in vain as keeper Trapp had one of the worst days in his career and all of Bordeaux’s shots on target ended up in the net.
Maybe PSG could have outscored the opponent but newly arrived Di Maria was a bit shy and PSG also missed striker Ibrahimovic and midfielder Pastore. Now both of them should return and Di Maria’s presence in the lineup is not guaranteed anymore.
PSG’s keeper Trapp seemed in such a poor form last week that even amateur strikers could find the net. Reims can definitely score at least once especially given their determination so far this season. But on the other hand is pretty difficult to keep a clean sheet when up against players like Ibrahimovioc and Cavani. Over 2.75 goals at 2.03
