Match preview

Les Phocéens welcome Reims to the Orange Vélodrome in Marseille on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match.

Last season’s Ligue 1 runners-up, Marseille, finished the season 15 points behind Champions PSG. They finished last season with a win at home to Strasbourg. The final score of the match was 4-0.

It has been a busy summer for Marseille who have spent over £50m net in the transfer market. Pau López is the most expensive signing for them this summer. The 27 year old goalkeeper arrives from AS Roma for £10.80m after spending last season here on loan.

Mattéo Guendouzi, a 23 year old central midfielder, was on loan from Arsenal FC last season and now makes the move permanent for £9.90m. Nuno Tavares also moves from Arsenal, albeit only on a season long loan. Cengiz Ünder and Arkadiusz Milik also make their loan moves from last season permanent. Luis Suárez, a 24 year old centre-forward, also arrives from Granada CF for £9.00m.

Pau Lopez, Ahmadou Bamba Dieng (leg) and Leonardo Balerdi (shoulder) are all doubts due to injury for this match. Pape Gueye and Duje Caleta-Car will also miss the match due to suspension carried over from last season.

Stade Reims finished the last Ligue 1 season comfortably in mid-table, 20 points behind the UEFA Conference League place and 14 points above the relegation play off zone. Les Rouges et Blancs come into this match on a run of three away league games undefeated carried over from last season. Although, Reims lost their last league match of the 2021/22 season at home to Nice. The final score of the match was 2-3.

Hugo Ekitiké is likely the biggest departure for them this summer. The 20 year old centre-forward has joined Paris Saint-Germain on loan for the 2022/23 season. He is expected to make the move a permanent one next summer for £35m.

Junya Ito is the big name replacement for him this summer. The 29 year old right winger arrives from KRC Genk for £9.00m. Central defenders Andreaw Gravillon and Emmanuel Agbadou, as well as goalkeeper Patrick Pentz are the other permanent additions to the squad this summer. Maxime Busi, a 22 year old right-back, and Folarin Balogun, a 21 year old Arsenal striker, arrive from on loan.

Injuries will rule out Moreto Cassamá (ankle injury), Kaj Sierhuis (cruciate ligament) for the trip to the Orange Vélodrome.
