Reims are a side that have thrived on consistency over the past couple of season, which saw them first win promotion from Ligue 2 with a record points tally then establish themselves comfortably in the top flight. As such, it should come as little surprise that nothing much has changed for the Champagne outfit over the course of the summer. Centre-back Bjorn Engels has been sold to Aston Villa at a substantial profit, while veteran attacker Pablo Chavarria has been allowed to sign for Mallorca, but dramatic changes have not taken place. Indeed, there are only four new faces in the first-team ranks, three of which are goalkeepers and none of these are liable to be first pick, although Edouard Mendy, who had an exceptional season last time out, is struggling with an injury picked up on international duty this summer. The only outfielder to join up, meanwhile, is midfielder Marshall Munetsi from Orlando Pirates. He is unlikely to break into the starting XI. Reims, then, look thoroughly predictable heading into the new season, with as much as 10 of the 11 first-choice players from last season retained. They will lean primarily on their defence, though, with Yunis Abdelhamid set to be the leader of the back four after an unexpectedly strong campaign last time out. They do, however, have an excellent selection of attacking midfielders – one that should be considered the envy of far stronger sides. Mathieu Cafaro, Arber Zeneli and Moussa Doumbia are all highly capable players, yet it was Remi Oudin who was the star last season. Centre forward may be an area of concern, though it is a role Oudin could play. Grejohn Kyei could be given the responsibility after a season on loan at Lens, backed up by youngster Boulaye Dia, who had a good first season in the top flight.

Target


Reims should be seeking to establish themselves in the middle of the table once more.

Season Review
2018/2019

№8: Reims

Reims made a tremendous impression on their return to Ligue 1 after a two-year absence. Indeed, this is the first time since 1976 that the club has finished in the top half of the top-flight standings. David Guion has carefully crafted a well-balanced unit that has been nourished by strong organisation and a clear understanding of what is expected of each player. If that was evident in their record-breaking campaign in Ligue 2 last season, it was equally evident as they return to the big time. They came into the season with a defence that was entirely reconstructed. As such, there were significant question marks over that area of the team, yet it proved to be tremendously strong. Summer additions Bjorn Engels, Thomas Foket and Ghislain Konan were all clear hits, though the latter missed much of the second half of the season due to injury. Yunis Abdelhamid and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, meanwhile, both excelled themselves. Consistency in the heart of the midfield aided them greatly, with Alaixys Romao and Xavier Chavalerin protecting the rearguard on a regular basis. The attacking area of the team, meanwhile, proved to be very strong both in terms of its quality and its depth. Mathieu Cafaro emerged from the shadows to prove a smash hit, scoring seven and creating four in 34 games, and building in confidence as the conclusion to the campaign approached. Arber Zeneli, meanwhile, proved a strong pick up from Heereenveen in January but faded after a promising start, Guion stating due to fatigue. Pablo Chavarria, meanwhile, had a stronger campaign in the centre-forward role than his five goals and three assists might suggest. A physical forward, he held the ball up well for others though was somewhat overshadowed by the outstanding efforts of Remi Oudin, who had a breakout season by scoring 10 times and laying on three more. With Boulaye Dia also proving capable off the bench, Reims have themselves a well-rounded offensive unit and will shed Sheyi Ojo, whose loan spell from Liverpool was a complete flop. Reims look well set up for a lengthy stay in the top flight, with their 3-1 win over PSG on the final day of the campaign proving that they are capable of mixing it with anyone.
