Marseille can’t afford to lose points

Marseille could be even closer to Ligue 1 leaders PSG had they not lost important points in certain matches. To point out in their penultimate game against Brest, L’OM were winning 1-0 at home before conceding two goals in the second half. In addition, in the early season, they gave away a 2-0 lead to Bordeaux who finished the match 2-2 in the second half.

With such results, coach Sampaolo knows his team won’t have a chance to challenge PSG who are now 13 points clear at the top. As a result, Marseille’s ambition now will be to keep their second position. For that, they can’t afford to lose points as they did against Brest. To be more precise, L’OM lost eight points at home this season which is a lot considering they are challenging for a top-four finish.

Reims can be a dangerous opponent

Reims collected 11 points from their last six matches which had them leave the danger zone at the bottom three. In fact, the Red and Whites won three of their last four matches and have one defeat in their last six. Some of their casualties are top clubs like Lyon whom they beat in Lyon. Moreover, Reims held a strong Monaco side to a stalemate in the seaside province. 

In effect, coach Oscar Garcia’s team emerged as a tough opponent especially when playing on the road. Obviously, Garcia worked hard with his defensive line as they have three clean sheets in the last six matches. Offensively also, the Red and Whites are netting regularly as they did in the last five matches. Therefore, Reims have gained confidence in recent weeks and will play to grab points at the Velodrome.

Marseille vs Reims Prediction

According to the bookies, Marseille are the favorites to win this match with odds of 1.71. However, with Reims’s recent form, that could be a bit risky to bet for. Not to mention, in their last three visits to Stade Velodrome, Reims have not lost (W1, D2).

Looking at the goals market, both teams were part of low-scoring games recently. To illustrate, Marseille’s seven of the last eight matches saw under 2.5 goals. While Reims’s last five of six games saw under 2.5 goals. In addition, five of the last seven h2hs saw the same number of goals.

Moreover, the stats show that there is a 55% chance for this game to be a low-scoring one. As a result, we will back under 2.5 goals which is also the favorite with the bookies. And for our second prediction, we will back over 8.5 corners since the total average of both teams is 10 per game.
