Team news & rosters

After reigning champions Lille faltered, it fell to Marseille to lead the chasing pack to hunt down Paris Saint-Germain’s title chances – and though they came up short, Les Olympiens far from disgraced themselves in their pursuit of silverware.

While PSG have already thrown down an impressive gauntlet this term, the hosts and coach Igor Tudor need to keep their focus solely on a flying start of their own, particularly with the looming mid-season World Cup set to play havoc on schedules.

Predicted Marseille starting XI: Lopez; Mbemba, Balerdi, Tavares; Clauss, Guendouzi, Rongier, Kolasinac; Gerson, Payet; milik.

The halcyon days of a bright 2019-20 start – ended by the pandemic – with a sixth-place finish look long gone for Reims, but there may be hope for the storied outfit that they can strike back into the upper half of the table this term.

A failure to do so will leave Óscar García’s men at the mercy of an expanded relegation battle this term, amid structural changes, necessitating the need to really strike fast and strike early this season.

Predicted Reims starting XI: Pentz; Locko, Abdelhamid, Faes, Foket; Doumbia, Munetsi, Matusiwa, Kebbal; Toure, Balogun.
