After ending in 18th place in Ligue 1 after the ’16 season, Reims will be dropping to Ligue 2 for their upcoming year. For Reims to have a chance in this match they will need to have good showings from their top footballers. Reim keeper Johnny Placide must play like a wall and not let one ball from Cristiano into the net. Reims has a chance in this game to prove themselves against a top-tier, world-class club in Real but the odds are against them.
Cristiano is coming off a busy summer of football. He helped bring a Euro Cup title to his country of Portugal despite playing through injuries. He will no doubt do his best to put the ball in the net during this warm-up game to show his fans that he is ready for the coming season. Good luck to all.
