Folarin Balogun (22 years old, 4 matches and 2 goals in L1 this season) is back in Reims. Ready in Champagne last season, the attack was sent to the Stade Auguste Delaune with the new AS Monaco team at the same time (5 p.m.). At a press conference, Reims coach Will Still spoke about this reunion, as well as his strategy to prevent the American international from shining against his former team.
« He’s a very good striker, who we know very well. He will certainly want to have a good match and make us regret the fact that he left. It’s going to be a great duel. Our defenders know him well enough. GOOD.
This is the reason why Balogun is expected to be on the bench at the kick-off of this meeting in anticipation of the 8th day of Ligue 1 (see the 08:54 news).
