Marseille will hope to start the new season on a better note and aim to be relevant in the title race.

With Paris Saint-Germain setting the standards so high in the league, the Les Olympiens know that the margin of error is almost minimal if they are to challenge the Parisians for the coveted title.

The challenge starts from the first week when they host Stade Reims in their Ligue 1 season opener at Stade Vélodrome.

The Ligue 1 match will be played between Marseille and Stade Reims at Stade Vélodrome, in Marseille, France. The ground has a capacity of 67,000.

  • While 26-year-old French winger Florian Thauvin remains a doubt due to a thigh injury. He hasn’t featured for Marseille in the pre-season since coming off against Rangers last month.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • With Benedetto out, Valere Germain should start up front for the hosts.
  • Andre Villas-Boas is making a comeback to football after a gap of almost three years. It will be interesting to see how he sets up his team in this game.
  • But we expect him to deploy Dimitri Payet in a no-10 role, with either Nemanja Radonjic or Luiz Gustavo on the left-wing.
  • Kevin Strootman and Morgan Sanson are expected to be in the starting 11 as well.
  • If Thauvin fails to shake off the knock in time, Bouna Sarr is expected to take his place on the right-wing.

Marseille Probable XI:

Steve Mandanda (GK), Jordan Amavi, Boubacar Kamara, Duje Caleta-Car, Hiroki Sakai, Morgan Sanson, Kevin Strootman, Luiz Gustavo, Dimitri Payet, Bouna Sarr / Florian Thauvin, Valere Germain
