Reims - form analysis: playing out without a full-fledged coach

The "Champagne" team parted ways with Villou Style. A year ago, the young Belgian caused a sensation with how quickly and effectively he transformed the team's game. However, they faltered towards the end even then. Now, after a decent start, there have only been 2 wins in 14 matches, and the 1-4 loss to Clermont was a sentence for the 31-year-old coach. Without him, they at least managed a draw against Brest, ending 1-1.

Marseille - form analysis: besides the Europa League, it's hard to find motivation

The "Provence" team changed coaches again shortly after the start of the Europa League playoffs. Gattuso, who replaced the short-lived Marselino, made way for Gasset. It was under him that Olympique faced Shakhtar, Villarreal, and Benfica. In the semifinal against Atalanta, after a 1-1 draw at home, they suffered a crushing 0-3 defeat in Bergamo. However, in the league, after winning three times under the new coach, the club only collected 2 points afterward. Even against Lens, they scored the winning goal in the 85th minute. Only against Lorient did they manage to look decent.

Reims: team news

De Smet may return after missing the previous match due to a red card. Edoa and Bussy are still injured, and Okumu is questionable.
