The emotions continue in one of the leagues that, over the years, has become much more popular on the European continent, Ligue 1, and this weekend we will have the actions of the 28th matchday, where all teams will want to take the three points in each of their matches.
After having a very nice battle at the top of the table for several weeks, PSG managed to escape and is now 10 points ahead of Olympique Marseille. This leaves PSG very close to a new title in the local competition.
On the other hand, the second, third, and fourth places in the table are more hotly contested, as Marseille, Lens, Monaco, and Rennes are somewhat close in the table, and in the next few rounds, anything can happen.
Stade Reims and Marseille are in incredible form, so we’re in for a real treat!

Why Bet on Stade Reims?
We get to cover one of the viral teams of the season thanks to its coach, Will Still. The young Belgian has experience in coaching but has declared that he learned a lot of his knowledge about the job from the popular game Football Manager. He doesn’t have a pro license, so Reims is fined 25.000 Euros for every match he coach. Not that they care considering their current form.
We do not doubt that Stade Reims is starting to be a hazardous team for everyone in Ligue 1. As such, with twelve consecutive matches without defeat, the team has managed to consolidate its position in the middle of the table. It now has its sights set on European competitions.
If we look at the team’s statistics, we can see that they have had an excellent season and are not at the top of the table because of their ineffectiveness in front of the goal, as they have a record of 10 wins, 13 draws, and only four defeats. They are the team with the fewest defeats in the season behind PSG and Lens.
Stade Reims is coming from three consecutive victories, the last one being against AS Monaco, with a score of 1-0.
Why Bet on Olympique Marseille?
Olympique Marseille, for their part, has missed the golden opportunity to fight with PSG for first place in the table. However, they are still in second place and intend to stay there until the end of the season and secure their place in the next Champions League.
With a record of 17 wins, five draws, and five defeats, the team has accumulated 56 points, and is only two ahead of Lens and three ahead of Monaco, so, for them, there are no second chances from now on, and a defeat could mean dropping to fourth place in the table.
Marseille came into this matchday after suffering an unexpected draw against Racing Strasbourg, with a score of 2-2.
