Marseille will be aiming to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they host Reims at the Orange Velodrome on Sunday afternoon. Marseille fought back from one-goal down to secure a 3-1 away victory at Amiens last weekend thanks to a hat-trick from Florian Thauvin. Reims, on the other hand, won 2-1 at home against Guingamp thanks to goals from Xavier Chavalerin and Boulaye Dia. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
After a four-game losing run across all competitions, Marseille bounced back with two consecutive wins in Ligue 1. This lifts OM in 5th spot in the standings, just one point behind the first two teams above them, Lille and Montpellier. They have been in mixed shape on home soil recently, having won three and lost two of their last five competitive games.
Meanwhile, Reims have been in good shape over the past two months, having lost just two of their last nine games across all competitions. Their recent form in Ligue 1 has seen them win two of the last three fixtures. Reims currently lie 8th in the Ligue 1 table, just five points behind their Sunday’s opponents. The bad news is that Reims have only won two of their seven league trips so far this season.
Although Reims have enjoyed a good run of form of late, we believe that Marseille are capable to secure a home victory here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Marseille to win at odds 1.44.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Marseille hold one of the worst defensive records in the division, but in the same time, they have one of the best offensives. We can’t see them conceding here, as Reims have only managed to score ten goals in 14 rounds so far this season. Our total goals prediction fancies under 2.5 goals at odds 2.10.
