Match Preview

Marseille recorded a league-high of ten clean sheets in their 19 Ligue 1 (L1) games at the Orange Vélodrome last season. Moreover, the ‘Olympians’ will take some encouragement from the fact they have won ‘to-nil’ in each of their last two opening day fixtures, while scoring over 2.5 goals on each occasion.
Sticking with a potentially high-scoring theme, four of Marseille’s last five L1 home games have seen over 2.5 total goals, while the last eight league H2Hs have produced an average of 2.63 goals per match. However, Marseille have won just one of the last six H2H top-flight league clashes held here (W1, D4, L1).
For their part, visitors Reims are outsiders here, having won just five of their 19 away league fixtures last season (D9, L5). However, the fact remains that they have kept a league-high of eight clean sheets over that period (42.11%).
However, the visitors have scored over 1.5 goals only twice in their last 13 away league outings, and just three of those games featured over 2.5 goals. On a more positive note though, Reims have won each of their last two opening day fixtures, while playing both games on the road.
Players to watchDimitri Payet scored a brace on the opening day of last season, with Marseille winning each of the three L1 games he has scored in.
Reims’ top scorer of 2018/19, Rémi Oudin, scored a majority (six) of his ten L1 goals on the road.
Stat attack: Marseille have failed to score a first-half goal in each of the last six L1 H2Hs held here.
Five of Reims’ last six away league wins have been accompanied by a clean sheet.
Across all venues, none of the last 19 H2H Ligue 1 meetings have featured both teams scoring before the break.
