The full-back lasted for the entire duration as David Guion's outfit picked all three points on offer in the home fixture at Stade Auguste-Delaune.
He joined Reims in January but had to wait until Sunday to make his bow.
Off the mark, the left-back will be anticipating a second straight run-out in the visit to Montpellier on Sunday.
Again, he will be hoping to put his troubles of the past two years behind for good in his quest to rediscover his once sparkling form.
Initially expected back in action after seven months, a series of complications kept him in the treatment room until May last year when he made a second-half appearance on the final matchday of the 2017-18 Bundesliga season, having rejoined the Royal Blues for a second spell on an 18-month deal.
This term, he made just four appearances for Schalke in all competitions, with his frustrations provoking a premature termination of his loan deal in January before heading to France.
