  • Competition: France - Ligue 1
  • Date: Sunday, 19th, March 2023

  • Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune (Reims)

Few could have expected that Reims, a club that finished in 14th and 12th place the previous two seasons, would play this well and would seriously compete for exit to the European stage. The club from the Champagne-Ardenne region is really enjoying a great period since Belgian Will Still took over as coach. Ahead of the 28th Ligue 1 matchday, The Red and Whites are currently eighth in the league table with 43 points, which is only four less than the last place that guarantees the European autumn.

Marseille, considered by many to be the biggest competitor of the Parisians in the fight for the Ligue 1 title, disappointed again and another season without a trophy, the 13th in a row, is smiling on them. They are eliminated from all competitions in which they participated in the current season, while they have already lost the race for the title, as they are 10 points behind PSG. In that case, Ligue 1 remains the last chance for Igor Tudor's team to get their hands on the elite club competition next season, but in order to achieve that goal, they will have to keep their current (second) position, which guarantees the group stage of the Champions League.

Reims vs Marseille Betting Tips: 1X (Double chance)

The recent head-to-head score is in favor of Marseille, who have not tasted defeat against Reims for four years. During that period, they met five times, two of which ended in a draw, while the other three belonged to Les Olympiens. One of those wins came on the opening day of the season, it was 4-1 for the team from "Velodrome".

The role of favorite is intended for Marseille. At least such an impression is acquired when we look at the Ligue 1 table and the recent tradition of clashes. However, the form is definitely on the side of the guests from the Champagne-Ardenne region, given that they have not felt the bitterness of defeat for a full six months or 19 rounds.

Yes, you heard right! They experienced their last defeat against Monaco, back on September 18 last year. However, The Red and Whites managed to beat the "Princes" at the "Stade Louis II" 1-0 last week and collect them debt from the first part of the season.

The triumph over Monaco not only continued their impressive 19-match unbeaten streak, but also registered their fourth win in their last five Ligue 1 games. Not to mention that Reims' net has remained calm in each of their last six league challenges, so Marseille is expecting hell at "Stade Auguste-Delaune".

When we add to all that and the data that all these phenomenal results of Reims were achieved under the bat of Will Still, who still does not have a professional UEFA coaching license, then we come to the conclusion that this is a fairy tale story of the Belgian strategist. In addition, he is the youngest coach in the top five European leagues.

Marseille, whose confidence is shaken in recent weeks, is coming on the feet of Reims. Namely, Igor Tudor's chosen ones are in a fall form. Their crisis is best illustrated by last week's clash with Strasbourg, where Les Olympiens gambled the big 2-0 in just two minutes, and in the end had to settle for a point (2-2).

The team from "Velodrome" has another terrible season in which they will remain without a trophy, for the 12th year in a row. Marseille, who were looking for consolation in the Coupe de France, suffered an embarrassing elimination from lower league side Annecy. Well, it can be said that they are far from their true form.

Reims, with a strong home record and huge support from the stands, should continue to throw the giants of Ligue 1 to their knees. We are of the opinion that the impressive streak of seven consecutive away triumphs in the French championship ends for Marseille, because simply their play of late does not inspire confidence.

Reims Team News

Reims coach Will Still will be without help Emmanuel Agbadou (Hamstring injury) and Noah Jean Holm (Undisclosed), while Myziane Maolida is questionable after missing last week's Ligue 1 clash.

The 30-year-old Belgian strategist should name the same side that impressed in a 1-0 win over Monaco last weekend. Folarin Balogun, who is on loan from Arsenal, continues to push his team towards Europe.
