Hubert Fournier hopes that Reims can take advantage of Lille's recent defensive frailties.

Reims coach Hubert Fournier hopes that his side can take advantage of a Lille defence that has conceded seven times in two games when the two teams clash on Friday night.

Fournier said that he expects a very tough game but has urged his side to be patient in order to exploit openings that will come their way.

"We will be up against a side doing everything in their power to win," he told Ligue1.com. "Just like us, they need the points, because this is without a doubt their last chance for Europe.

"Garcia will play his best possible side and we will have to try and stop them. We are expecting to do a lot of running because they like to hold onto the ball.

"I think they have one of the best squads in the country, but when you concede seven goals in your last two games, it means something's not right and we will be looking to take advantage of that. We know that they are going to go for it, so they will leave openings. We just have to take the chances that come our way."

The game kicks off at 7.30pm.
