Reims vs Marseille
French Ligue 1
Date: 19 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune II (Reims).
Reims and Marseille will drop the curtain on Gameweek No 28 on Sunday evening at Stade Auguste-Delaune II.
The hosts will be looking to extend the amazing 19-game unbeaten streak in the league, while Marseille are hoping to return to winning ways after a disappointing 2-2 stalemate to Strasbourg seven days ago.
Young Belgian coach Will Still is doing miracles with this Reims’ team. His men produced another fabulous all-round performance last Sunday when they stormed past Monaco in a 0-1 win at Stade Louis II.
The final score may not suggest so, but the whole game was all about Reims who dominated the pitch with eight shots on target at the end.
Eventually it was the team’s top scorer Folarin Balogun who made the difference on the occasion, taking his total league tally to impressive 16 goals. The English youngster is now only three goals shy of Jonathan David and Kylian Mbappe at the top of the league’s goal-scoring charts.
Reims have also kept six consecutive clean sheets going into this tie. It will be very interesting to see how their stern defensive line will cope with one of the competition’s strongest attacking units here.
Marseille have a win, a draw, and a loss in the last three league games. This run has dropped them out of contention for the title as leaders PSG are now 10 points away.
Reims vs Marseille Head-to-head
- Marseille destroyed Reims 4-1 in the reverse game played in early-August last year at Stade Orange Velodrome.
- Marseille have three victories and a draw in the previous four meetings with Reims.
- We have seen goals at both ends in four of the last five H2H affairs between these rivals.
Reims vs Marseille Prediction
Reims are undefeated in 19 straight Ligue 1 outings and we believe they have what it takes to keep this phenomenal streak going on Sunday against Marseille.
The visitors have not been the most meticulous side in defense of late and Reims do have a predator in attack capable of exploiting rivalling holes. We’ll take the home win and Folarin Balogun to score anytime, each bet being priced up at 3.00 odds.
