Fourteenth in Ligue 1 at the winter break, the Stade de Reims had a rather satisfactory first part of the 2021-2022 season for Oscar Garcia’s second experience in France. It must be said that the golden youth of the Champagne club is no stranger to the small mattress of advance (7 points) on the barrage, FC Metz.
Reims is indeed home to the most players born in the 21st century having the most impact in the calendar year 2021, in all competitions, among the 5 major European championships (Germany, England, Spain, France, Italy). With 18 goals scored by their young shoots, no one does better than the residents of the Auguste-Delaune stadium in Europe. The SDR of Hugo Ekitiké (8 goals), Nathanaël Mbuku (4 goals) or El Bilal Touré (3 goals) is notably ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal (16), Borussia Dortmund (15) and Bayer Leverkusen (13 ).
