Marseille vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th December 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome.
Marseille will be the odds on favorites when these two clubs clash on the early evening of Saturday.
Marseille lost their last game against Rennes 2-1 which ended five wins in a row and so they come into this game in 27 points but they are still good to reach the top of the league, because they have 2 games extra to play than their rivals.
However Andre Villas-Boas side will need to win more games at home, currently it is just 50% and they will need to try and increase that a further 10% if they want to be taken more seriously. If Marseille win they won’t be able to move up a place but they will keep 4th and put the pressure on Lyon.
Reims won just their third game of the season in midweek as they beat Nantes 3-2 at home. It was a very important result for the club and puts them two points clear of the bottom three.
Current form has been poor though and they have earned just 4 points from their last 15.
Marseille vs Reims: Head to Head
- Last season Reims won this fixture 2-0.
- It’s been 4 games since Marseille beat Reims and we would have to go back to 2016 when they won at home 1-0.
- In the last six games to take place at home Marseille have only beaten Reims once.
- There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Marseille vs Reims: Prediction
Of course with their league positions Marseille will start as the favorites but it has been proven that Reims do well here and are like Marseille’s bogey team.
The value is all on Reims so much so that we can take them to win on the handicap which will cover us in case the match ends in a draw.
There is more passion and good play from Reims in recent weeks and we shouldn’t write them off to get something from this game even if Marseille has the better squad.
