Amiens hosts Reims in a game from the first round of the French Ligue 2.
Amiens qualify for the Ligue 2 from The Championnat de France National. They finished third only three points behind the winner Strasbourg. The game on Monday will be the first for Amiens since the end of May because they didn’t play any friendlies.
Reims dropped from Ligue 1 after finished in 18th place with 39 points. They finished only a point behind Toulouse which with 40 points kept their place in Ligue 1. Reims prepared from the new season with one friendly match against Nancy 16 July which finished 1:1.
The last season these two teams were in completely different positions: Amiens played in National which is the third division and Reims was in Ligue 1 with the best teams in France. Now they will face each other in the start of Ligue 2 and I expect nevertheless the disappointment that Reims had that they will start the new season with a win and fight since the start of Ligue 2 for a place in Ligue 1 next season.
