In the upcoming rescheduled Ligue 1 clash, Reims hosts Marseille at Stade Auguste-Delaune on May 15, 2024, as part of the league's 32nd gameweek.

This encounter comes at a crucial time for both teams, especially Marseille, who are pushing for a top-six finish.

Current Form

Reims

Reims, under the temporary management of Samba Diawara after Will Still’s departure, secured a 1-1 draw against Brest, which could influence their momentum going into this match.

Despite being positioned 11th in the league and with nothing significant to play for, Reims will look to capitalise on their home advantage.

Their recent form shows a mixed bag, with just one win in the last seven home games under Still’s tenure, a record they will be eager to improve as the season closes.

Marseille

On the other side, Marseille are coming off a disappointing Europa League exit but managed to bounce back with a 3-1 victory over Lorient in Ligue 1.

Positioned eighth but just three points behind sixth-placed Lens, a win here could potentially elevate them to sixth owing to their superior goal difference.

This adds a layer of intensity as they seek to correct their dismal away form that has seen them win just one of their past seven away league games.

Team News

Reims will welcome back Thibault De Smet from suspension, although he may not start. They remain handicapped by injuries with several key players like Mohamed Daramy and Maxime Busi sidelined.

Marseille, buoyed by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 16 goals this season, also face absences due to injuries, but the return of Bamo Meite from an ankle issue could provide a boost.

Prediction

Predicting the outcome of this match is tricky due to the contrasting motivations and recent form of both teams.

However, with Marseille fighting for a spot in Europe and Reims playing without pressure, the scales might tip in favour of the visitors.

Marseille’s need for points, coupled with Reims’ inconsistent performances, suggests a possible 3-1 victory for Marseille.
