Goalless at the Break

This will be a tense fixture given that both teams have had some good results in recent games. Reims is 11th on Ligue 1 table and while there is little to play for, the hosts are looking to extend their unbeaten run to ten games. Reims has not lost a Ligue 1 game since 13th February and has had one of the best defensive records since the start of their unbeaten run. In this fixture, we expect Reims to keep out Marseille from scoring an early goal, which is why we are backing a barren scoreline at half-time time.

Both Teams to Score: No

We are also predicting a one-sided scoring encounter between Reims and Marseilles. While the bookies are giving Marseille a slight edge in this fixture, they have only kept two clean sheets in the last ten fixtures in all competitions. The visitors have conceded 9 goals in their last five Ligue 1 games. Reims has conceded 6 goals in their last nine fixtures and welcome Marseille after two consecutive barren draws.

Goals in Second Half

In the reverse fixture, Reims has gifted an own goal by Marseille’s defender, Yuto Nagotomo. The fixture ended 1-1 despite Florian Thauvin finding the net shortly before the half-time break. Thauvin is now Marseille‚Äôs top scorer and could be on the score sheet again against Reims. Moreover, with the top five only three points away, betting on most goals to come in the second half looks good on the books.

Match Preview: Marseille Looking for Away Win in Ligue 1 since December 2020

While this fixture is more important to Marseille as they hope to break into the top five, breaking down Reims’ defence will not be easy. Find out why in our match preview below.

Reims

Reims is on top of their game coming into this fixture. With five games to go, the hosts would want to finish the season strong, and even more importantly, higher up on the Ligue 1 table. Reims welcomes Marseille after two consecutive draws. Three of Reims seven draws in the last nine league games have been 0-0. They also have three 1-1 draws and 2-2 against Rennes at the start of April. The hosts have only recorded two victories in their last nine Ligue 1 games.

Marseille

Marseille visits Reims after thrashing Lorient 3-2 last weekend. Before that, the visitors drew 3-3 at Montpellier in a thrilling fixture. They also have three victories in the last six fixtures and a 3-0 loss at Nice. The last away victory for Marseille on the road against Rennes was a 5-0 thrashing in 2014. The visitors have defeated Rennes only twice on the road; 2014 and 2012. Moreover, Marseille has no victory against Rennes since 2016. And with no win on the road for the visitors this season since December 2020, it would be interesting to see how everything turns out for them at Stade Auguste Delaune on 23rd Friday 2021.
