New season started with Patrick Vieira, the Arsenal legend, in the bench of Nice, as successful L.Favre is now working for Borussia Dortmund. Nice didn’t impress in their preparation games, actually they only won Stade Nyonnais, a 3rd category Swiss club. Three losses from Sporting, Torino, Saint-Étienne and a draw vs Sporting Charleroi are their rest friendly games, not at all impressive outcomes, aren't they? C.Herelle and Atal, defenders, have joined Nice. Plea, their outstanding striker, has left for Bundesliga (Borussia Monchengladbach), Seri and Le Marchand have signed for Fulham. Their superstar Balotelli, has only played some fifteen minutes this season. He is still at the club, but I doubt he will remain a Nice player after the end of this transfer period.
Reims won League Two in a style (+15 points from second placed Nimes). It was a really impressive season for D.Guion’s team, who stayed on their bench for another season. Fontaine, Romao and Doumbia are their new signings, all played in their last preparation game (2-1 vs Dijon). Suk, the Korean forward, who impressed at Troyes last season, has also signed for Reims
I am impressed by the way last season Reims won League Two and as Nice look quite weakened this season, I will go with the outsiders in this match. 4.50+ are extremely good odds for well organised newcomers Reims.
