Marseille vs Reims Match Preview
Marseille host Reims as they open the new Ligue 1 campaign on Saturday afternoon in hope they can put a somewhat unpredictable pre-season campaign behind them and bag the first points at Orange Velodrome – against rivals who have proven tricky to beat in recent head-to-head clashes.
Les Phoceens have seen three losses and bagged two wins along the way, most recently beating Bordeaux (2-1) and DC United (1-8) but suffering a 0-1 loss to Napoli. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular under new manager Andre Villas-Boas and many feel there’s summer business to be done, but the new campaign is already upon them.
Reims will hope to capitalize on such circumstances and they’ve been doing so in the past, snatching a point here and bagging all three as they hosted Marseille last term. They’ve picked it up late in the pre-season campaign too and could be enjoying a better mood at this point despite a more lenient schedule.
Red and Whites have beaten Metz (2-0), Dijon (1-3), and Sheffield United (3-1) in three outings since late July and really enjoying thrilling clashes along the way – which promises a great challenge at Orange Velodrome and a great game of football hopefully with goals too.
We will still back Marseille to kick it off with a win and we feel they’ll be able to enjoy a thriller in front of the home fans, as we now go for a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT – which comes at 7/4 with Paddy Power and looks great value at this point.
Indeed, we do see the visitors getting on the scoresheet and giving Marseille a run for the money. With that in mind, we’re also backing a Yes on Both teams to score at 21/20 with William Hill – which would be fourth such occasion in six outings for Marseille and sixth in seven for Reims, respectively.
