Stade Reims vs Paris Saint Germain
Competition: French Ligue 1
Match date: 08 August 2014
Kick Off Time: 18:30 GMT
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune, Reims, France

Reims finished the last years season 2013/14 on an eleventh position. They were able to collect 48 points and played a pretty average season with 12 wins 12 draws and 14 losses. The distance between them and the relegation ranks were 8 points. They will now meet the reigning champions in game one. If this is an advantage is at least questionable. Last season playing with PSG they lost twice with 0:3. But there is no need for desperation, the last win against PSG dates from 2013, when they were able to beat them with 1:0 playing at home. However the last test matches have not been terrific. Against the FC Loriont they played 1:1 just as against the FC Metz some days before. They even lost one of their last three games against the fifth league club – ASNL with 0:1. 
The French champion of the past two years – PSG – has not yet finished its transfer-plans for the new season. The questions that remain still are: who else will leave the club and who will be transferred to PSG? Maybe Angel di Maria? At least the international press assumes this. But in fact there is no time for questioning, the French season kicks off on Friday the 8th and Paris will have to travel to Stade Reims. Therefore they will be eager to win this first encounter and to have a good start in the new season. Actually they already won their first title at the „Trophée des Champions 2014“ against EA Guingamp with 2:0. Superstar Ibrahimovic scored twice and the match was almost won after 20 minutes. In addition PSG had to play in Hongkong against Kitchee, where they also won with a fabulous 6:2. Some days before Nicce was beaten with a 2:1. They seem to be well prepared for the start of the Ligue 1 season 2014/15.

Probable lineups:
Stade Reims: Agassa – Mandi, Weber, Tacalfred, Signorino – Oniangue, Bourillon, Devaux – Moukandjo, Charbonnier, Diego
Paris Saint-Germain: Sirigu – Aurier, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Digne – Matuidi, Cabaye, Verratti – Lucas, Ibrahimovic, Cavani
