Team news and rosters
After defending champions Lille fell short, it fell to Marseille to lead the chasing pack to hunt down Paris Saint-Germain’s title chances – and although they failed, the Olympians are far from dishonoring themselves in their pursuit of silverware.
While PSG have already thrown down an impressive gauntlet this season, the hosts and manager Igor Tudor must focus solely on getting off to a good start, especially with the looming mid-season World Cup disrupting schedules.
Predict Marseille starting XI: Lopez; Mbemba, Balerdi, Tavares; Clauss, Guendouzi, Rongier, Kolasinac; Gerson, Payet; militia.
The halcyon days of a brilliant start to 2019-20 – ended by the pandemic – with a sixth-place finish seem over for Reims, but there may be hope for the legendary outfit that they can come back in the half top of the table this term.
A failure to do so will leave Óscar García’s men at the mercy of a wider relegation battle this term, amid structural changes, necessitating the need to strike really fast and strike early this season.
Starting eleven planned for Reims: Pentz; Locko, Abdelhamid, Faes, Foket; Doumbia, Munetsi, Matusiwa, Kebbal; Touré, Balogun.
