Match Preview

  • Stade de Reims remain safe in midtable, but are on the verge of registering four consecutive draws in Ligue 1 (L1) for the first time since October 2013! What has been common in their fixtures are low-scoring first halves, as a league-high 39.39% of their L1 matches have ended goalless at HT, contributing to a joint-league low of 1.0 first-half match goals per game.
  • The hosts may have avoided defeat in their last 11 L1 home games (W3, D8), but they are enduring a run of six consecutive home draws – their longest such run in the club’s history! Usually strong from the off when playing at home, Reims have kept a first-half clean sheet in a league-high 75% of their L1 home fixtures this season.
  • Visiting Marseille have lost just one of their last six top-flight matches (W4, D1), despite conceding a first-half opener in three of the previous four, but still sit one point off the European places. Furthermore, the fact that Marseille have won just one of the last seven H2Hs is concerning (W1, D3, L3).
  • Though they have trailed at HT in just 12.5% of their away games this campaign, ‘Les Olympiens’ are winless in ten consecutive top-flight road trips (D5, L5) – their longest such run since April 2002! To turn their fortunes around, they may want to keep it tight late on, as 52.98% of the league goals they’ve conceded away have arrived after the hour mark.
  • Players to watch: Reims’ Arbër Zeneli has scored the opener in his three goalscoring L1 games this season, but the battle to see who will score first could also involve Florian Thauvin (MAR) as he’s scored seven of his eight league goals this term before HT.
  • Hot stat: The starting match favourite has won a joint-league low 33.33% of Reims’ L1 games (W11, D14, L8).
