The Ligue 1 returns this weekend and will see Reims host Brest at the Stade Auguste-Delaune on Sunday afternoon.

Reims are struggling for form at the moment. They were beaten 1-0 by Nantes in their last game after their captain Yunis Abdelhamid received a red card in the opening 15 minutes of the game. The result marked a fourth defeat for the hosts in their last five games across all competitions.

Reims sit 14th in the league standings with 27 points from 24 games. They are six points above the drop zone and will be looking to widen that gap with a win on Sunday.

Brest have struggled for results in the league of late but picked up a clinical 5-1 win over Troyes in their last game. Franck Honorat and Inter Milan loanee Martin Satriano both scored braces before Steve Mounie came off the bench to complete the rout.

The visitors sit two places above their hosts in the league table with 31 points picked up so far. They will be looking to build on their latest result and climb up the table with a victory at the weekend.

Reims vs Brest Head-to-Head

The two sides last met in a Ligue 1 clash earlier this season. The game ended 1-1.
