Both teams to score at Marseille vs Reims 6/5 for Saturday’s Ligue 1 opener
Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Two sides who are looking to start the new Ligue 1 campaign with three points, Marseille will host Reims on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on their inconsistent end to last season over the summer, Marseille are a side showing signs of a struggle. Finishing the last campaign with 61 points and five points adrift of occupying that final Europa League spot, they also lost two of their five pre-season appearances, including a 4-0 loss away at Rangers last month. Also losing three of their last five matches on home soil across all competitions, it is also worth noting that Marseille have recorded just a single clean sheet across their last 15 matchups.
As for the visitors, building off their back-to-back victories at the end of last season, Reims have continued to shine during pre-season. Including a 3-1 win over Premier League outfit Sheffield United in their final pre-season appearance, they were unbeaten in each of their five matches over the summer and have now scored two or more goals in each of their last three consecutive outings. Managing to secure an eighth-place finish in Ligue 1 last season, it is also worth noting that Reims have lost just one of their last six matches on their travels.
