Ligue 1 begins with a bang, as both Marseille and Reims look to hit the ground running with a win on the 12th of August. Marseille have the home-field support at Velodrome, but will it be enough?

Essential Marseille vs Reims Predictions for Ligue 1

Give our Marseille vs Reims predictions a thorough read:


To expect anything less than a convincing home-team win on Saturday would be simply ludicrous. Marseille have a good record of beginning their Ligue 1 campaigns with victories, so Reims should go home empty-handed on the 12th of August. Especially, when you remember the fact that Marseille bested Reims in three consecutive games. The overall head-to-head statistics also point to a Marseille win on Saturday, as the last 10 games between the two sides ended in five victories for Marseille, three draws, and barely two Reims wins.

Under 2.5 goals

A staggering 60.0% of the last 10 Marseille vs Reims head-to-heads ended in under 2.5 goals, so we believe our Marseille vs Reims prediction is right to expect a low goalscoring efficiency by the two teams at Velodrome. Four of Marseille’s last five games in all tournaments had two or fewer goals. Their last match was a good example, as Panathinaikos managed to keep a clean sheet.


The visitors are the ones who’ll have a hard time finding the net at Velodrome. After all, this is one of the most unwelcoming venues in Ligue 1. However, there’s always the chance for Marseille to fail to make chances pay. Marseille couldn’t score in two of their last 10 attempts against Reims, and despite the desire to begin their 2023/24 Ligue 1 campaign in the proper way, we could potentially see Marseille fall victim to the built-up pressure.

Marseille vs Reims Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News


Fans at Velodrome are eager for the start of the game, as Marseille didn’t quite show a convincing face in the pre-season games. Even the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round against Greek giants Panathinaikos ended poorly for Marseille.


Unlike their Saturday rivals, Reims actually recorded some very impressive results in the summer of 2023. Coach Will Still’s boys defeated Torino, Zaragoza, Getafe, Amiens FC, and Charleroi, while losing only to Eupen. It’s definitely a sturdy display of football by the team that does put our Marseille vs Reims predictions in jeopardy.
