Marseille not to lose and total goals under 2.5
Marseille still have one of the best attacks in the Ligue 1, but the latest changes in the coaching staff affected the team results.
However, they will have a home advantage which should work in their favor.
Total goals under 2.5
Marseille have struggled to score goals lately. In their previous four pre-season friendlies, they have managed to score just one goal.
Meanwhile, Reims will be without their topscorer Hugo Ekitike.
The hosts have seen less than 2.5 goals in their previous 5 home matches against Reims in all competitions. Thus, we can expect a more tactical match and a low-scoring game.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Marseille vs Reims
Marseille finished second last season, which let them return to UEFA Champions League after 1-year absence.
After taking Les Olympiens back to Europe’s elite, Jorge Sampaoli sensationally left as Marseille’s head coach over a lack of backing in the transfer market. Earlier in July, Marseille appointed Croatian Igor Tudor as their new manager to succeed Sampaoli.
Meanwhile, Les Phocéens had a poor run in the pre-season, winning just one of their five friendlies.

On the other hand, Reims will be looking to improve their 12th place finish of last season.
However, it would be a tough season for them, as they lost last season’s topscorer Hugo Ekitike, who has departed for PSG and are yet to find a replacement.
Oscar Garcia’s team have good experience of starting their French top division season on the road as they are undefeated in their last four seasons (W2, D2).
- Marseille have seen under 2.5 goals in their previous 5 home games against Reims in all competitions
