    Marseille to boost top-two chances against Reims
    16/03/23 3386

    On Sunday night, Reims and Marseille clash at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II as both teams look to enhance their European hopes in Ligue One.


    The home team is slightly off the pace of the top five in Ligue One, as they are currently four points adrift of Rennes, who occupy the last European qualification berth in the French top flight.

    However, a 19-game unbeaten run in Ligue One under highly-rated head coach Will Still has kept the home side in with a chance of playing European football next season.

    An impressive 1-0 win at Monaco last time out also means that Reims have won four of their previous five games in the French top flight.

    A key to their recent good league form is defensive solidity, as they have kept six straight clean sheets in Ligue One.

    Reims have also won seven of their last eight home games in the French top flight while keeping three straight clean sheets.


    OM are currently in second place in Ligue One, which would see them qualify for the Champions League for next season. However, Igor Tudor’s team is just two points ahead of third-place Lens in the race to secure a top-two finish in the French top flight.

    Marseille’s form has dipped slightly of late, as a 2-2 home draw with Strasbourg last time out means that OM has won just three of their previous six matches in Ligue One.

    However, OM has remained strong on their travels, as the visitors are unbeaten in eight away games in Ligue One, having recorded seven straight away wins in the league.

    Their attacking play has played a vital role in their recent good away form, as Marseille has scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight matches on their travels.
