Marseille Prediction – Can Marseille extend unbeaten run?

Following an opening day 2-0 defeat at home to Reims, Marseille have since picked up their game with a 6-match unbeaten run which has helped lift the hosts up into 7th place in the French top flight prior to today’s clash with Rennes.

Wins against Nice, Saint-Etienne and Monaco along with points picked up along the way with draws against Nantes, Montpellier and Dijon mean that Marseille have proven themselves a hard unit to crack in recent times, but results on home turf have produced a mixed return in recent weeks.

The aforementioned 2-0 loss to Reims was followed by the win against Saint-Etienne and a draw with Montpellier, so it’s difficult to say what’s likely to happen here, but with just 2 wins out of their last 6 matches at their Orange Vélodrome, Marseille aren’t quite guaranteed the points here.

Even more so if you consider Marseille have drawn 2-2 and lost 3-1 in their last two meetings at home against Sunday evening’s visitors, Rennes.

Rennes Prediction – Can Rennes break their drought?

The visitors have failed to win any of their last 4 matches overall in Ligue 1 in recent weeks as they’ve been handed defeats to Nice 2-1 at home and a 1-0 loss away from home at Nantes, but they did pick up points in draws with Brest and 4th placed Lille recently too.

Rennes occupy 9th place heading into this Sunday evening encounter at the Orange Vélodrome which is largely thanks to an explosive start to the new French domestic top flight campaign which saw the visitors win their first three matches of the season on the trot.

Victories over Montpellier, PSG and Strasbourg have made the league sit up and take note (especially the win against PSG), and the bigger picture indicates that Rennes are also a tough side to break down as they’ve lost just 2 of their last 12 matches overall in Ligue 1.

Rennes have also lost just 1 of their last 6 matches on their travels too, so they stand a good chance of taking something out of this clash, particularly as they’ve avoided defeat in their last two visits to the Orange Vélodrome.
