Le Mans UC 72 vs Reims

FRANCE LIGUE 2: Le Mans UC 72 vs Reims 3/20 3:30AM GMT+8

Le Mans may be in the relegation dogfight but their form since coach Denis Zanko was appointed in December is that of a top-10 side. The former youth academy boss has inspired a dramatic improvement at the MMArena, with Le Mans picking up 14pts from a possible 24 in 2012. When he took charge he made a point of saying home wins were vital for Le Mans to avoid the drop, so expect a fully committed performance here.

Visitors Reims will probably be glad to be playing away from home as their form in front of their own fans has wobbled. After beginning with nine wins and a draw from their first 10 fixtures at Stade Auguste Delaune they suffered two consecutive home defeats, at the hands of local rivals Sedan (1-2) and Tours (2-3), and could only draw against Laval (1-1) on Tuesday night.

Le Mans UC 72 : 2.49
Reims : 2.92
Draw : 2.98
