Marseille had all of their hopes and dreams pinned on a Europa League final in Dublin to save a poor domestic season, but Atalanta made sure to ruin it for them. So, now both Reims and Marseille are battling it out for pride and mid-table mediocrity.

Marseille/Marseille

Key stats

  • Reims have won just three Ligue 1 games in 2024
  • Marseille have managed to keep seven clean sheets in Ligue 1
  • Les Phoceens have only won two league games away from home

Pre-game odds and win probability: Marseille tipped to win back-to-back games

  • Home: 21/10 (3.1) – 32.3%
  • Draw: 13/5 (3.6) – 27.8%
  • Away: 23/20 (2.15) – 46.5%

Marseille are seen as the favourites by the bookmakers and that's no surprise given Reims are in a rut at the moment and without a manager following Will Still's departure. However, Jean-Louis Gasset could well ring the changes for Marseille in his last two games with Les Phoceens having nothing to play for.

This is why we highly recommend you take a glance at our free betting tips page because we offer a load of options which don't include the outright winner in this match, meaning there's less risk involved if rotated sides are put out.

Last five H2Hs: Les Phoceens will fancy their chances

Marseille have not lost against Reims in any of their last five encounters, although their opponents did appear to bridge the gap earlier in the season picking up a respectable 0-0 draw. They don't have a manager at the helm now though, and this has already made them vulnerable against other sides.

Reims preview: Woeful way to end the season

Reims started the season in fine form but noise off the pitch surrounding their former manager, Will Still, seemed to distract them on the pitch and that's resulted in a mediocre campaign which many will be itching to get finished.

Predicted lineup: Diouf (GK) – Akieme, Abdelhamid, Agbadou, Foket – Kone, Munetsi – Khadra, Teuma, Ito – Diakite

Marseille preview: Chance to restore pride

There was concern about Marseille's players being mentally on the beach after being dumped out of the Europa League. However, a comfortable 3-1 win over Lorient last weekend dismissed that sort of talk, but this will be another trick test to stay focussed.

Predicted lineup: Lopez (GK) – Mbemba, Gigot, Garcia – Luis Henrique, Veretout, Hari, Murillo – Correa, Aubameyang, Sarr

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring for Marseille
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 16 goals in Ligue 1 for Marseille – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

As is so often the case for Marseille, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the one man Reims need to keep a very close eye on. The Gabon international scored a brace last time out including the winning goal, so he's not letting his own season fizzle out.

Gabon international will terrify Reims

Aubameyang now has 16 goals and eight assists in the league this season – the fourth best – but none of them came against Reism on the opening day, something he will be separate to put right this time around.
