Rennes vs Marseille Match Preview
Rennes host Marseille for their Matchday 20 clash on Friday evening in great form after edging past Amiens (on penalties after a goalless draw) in Coupe de France and earning their seventh win in eight outings across competitions. Julien Stephan’s men have been very tough in front of the home fans and now surely have high hopes they can show off once again.
Black and Reds have beaten St Etienne (2-1), Angers (2-1), Lazio (2-0), and Bordeaux (1-0) at this ground since early December, keeping clean sheets on all of the last three occasions. They sit just five points behind the 2nd placed rivals and will want to close the gap as soon as Friday evening.
Marseille boast great team spirits of recent too, though, and will be no sitting ducks. They’ve earned eight wins in their last nine outings and only saw the streak interrupted in a 1-1 draw at Metz, but this could be indicative of their performances on the road just as much as the narrow Coupe de France win at National 2 rivals Trelissac (on penalties after a 1-1 draw),
Phocaeans have had more trouble turning away clashes their way and they obviously have a lot yet to prove if they’re to keep hold of their spot. They’ve been denied points by Amiens (3-1), PSG (4-0), and Monaco (2-1) since early October too, which will have the crowd at Roazhon Park hopeful.
We’ll now stick our necks out for Rennes to secure all three points and keep up their winning streak here, going for a Home win at 13/8 with Paddy Power. They’ve been rock-solid at this ground and should now be in great shape.
However, they should be given a great run for the money and with that in mind, we’re hoping for an exciting occasion this time around. We hope to see the Red and Blacks outgun the visitors to secure the points and we’re going for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 6/5 with Paddy Power.
