Date: Sunday, 02 December 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Vélodrome (Marseille).
The Olympians will host Reims in Round 15 of the Ligue 1 on Sunday. The hosts will be looking for a third consecutive win in the league.
Marseille is 5th in the table with 8 wins and 5 defeats from 14 matches so far. The attacking third has contributed an impressive 27 goals while the team conceded 22 in return. So there is a serious lack of intent at the back for defending their own goal.
They are currently on a 2 match win streak in the league. But these are the only wins they have in the last 7 competitive matches. All the remaining games were lost. More than 2.5 goals came in 5 of those 7 matches. Home record is much better for them. In the last 5 games, they won 3 and lost twice as well. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 8 of the last 10 matches in front of their home crowd.
David Guion’s team are 8th in the points table with 5 wins and 4 defeats from their 14 matches. His side is just 5 points behind their opponents for Sunday. So this match is crucial for their future. They have also given away more goals than what they scored.
From the last 5 games they played in all competitions, they managed to win 3 and lost 2 also. Fewer than 2.5 goals were recorded in 4 of those games. In the last 5 games on the road, they have lost twice. Four of those matches had less than 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
Marseille is better at home matches in the league. So they may edge past Reims quiet easily.
