Round 34 of the French Ligue 1 comes to an end on Sunday when Stade de Reims play host to Olympique Marseille at the Stade Auguste Delaune.

This will be the second meeting between the sides this season after the honors were shared in a 1-1 draw back in December’s reverse fixture.

Reims returned to winning ways last Wednesday as they saw off reigning champions Lille 2-1 on home turf.

Prior to that, they were on a four-game winless run, claiming two points from a possible 12.

With 40 points from 33 games, Reims are currently 13th in the Ligue 1 standings, but could rise to 11th place with all three points on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Olympique Marseille turned in a performance of the highest quality as they came from behind twice to claim a 3-2 victory over Nantes last time out.

This followed a 2-1 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain which saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end.

With 62 points from 33 games, Olympique Marseille are currently second in the league table, 15 points off first-placed PSG.
