Marseille have been in excellent form in the French league recently, and they will be looking to continue that form when they come up against another of the in-form sides in the league.
Ligue 1 Preview
The frightening pace that has been set by the top four in Ligue 1 means that there is virtually no chance that Marseille will be playing European football next season. They are 15 points off Lyon with five games of the season remaining. However, they will be targeting as high of a finish as possible, and would consider fifth place a decent achievement this term. They come into this fixture just one point behind the side currently in that position, and a win on Friday evening would take them above Lens into fifth. Marseille have been in good form over their last six league fixtures, as they have lost just once and have claimed four victories. They picked up a win in their last league fixture against Lorient. Pol Lirola scored a 91st minute winner for Marseille in that game, as the French giants came back from 1-0 down to take all three points. Lirola scored twice, while there was also a goal from Dimitri Payet.
Reims will not be easy opponents for Marseille on Friday evening, as they have also been a side in great form over recent weeks. They haven’t lost in six, and have been a difficult side to break down. They have won just twice in these fixtures, and have picked up four draws. Reims come into this home fixture having drawn their last three. Their most recent draw came against Metz, as the match finished 0-0. That was the second consecutive game that Reims have played that has finished 0-0.
Reims vs Marseille Head To Head
This hasn’t been a fixture that Marseille have looked forward to in recent years, as they haven’t beaten Reims in their previous four. Reims have claimed two wins during that run of fixtures, while there have also been two draws. The last meeting between the sides in December ended in a 1-1 draw.
Reims vs Marseille Prediction
This could be a fascinating battle, as there is very little between the sides. Reims have been difficult to beat over recent weeks, and we expect them to continue that fine form with another draw on Friday evening against Marseille.
