Rennes Prediction – Can Rennes keep amazing run going?

Undoubtedly, 3rd placed Rennes have been the revelation in this season’s Ligue 1 campaign so far this term as Friday night’s hosts look to close the gap on their opponents in this evening’s top of the table clash at Roazhon Park.

The hosts bring an excellent 5-match winning streak into this clash having disposed of Saint-Etienne, Metz, Angers, Lyon and Bordeaux in recent weeks and it’s been this impressive stretch of wins that have helped lift Rennes up into contention for a Champions League qualifier spot.

Indeed, Rennes have won 7 of their last 8 matches overall in Ligue 1 and this momentum looks hard to stop, but they’ll face a tough test on Friday night when they entertain 2nd placed Marseille despite holding home advantage.

Rennes possess a home record of 6-1-2 15/10 and have won their last 5 matches on the trot after making a slow start which saw the hosts lose 2 of their first 4 matches on home turf. 7 of Rennes’ 9 home matches have seen both teams score too.

Marseille Prediction – Can Marseille extend unbeaten run?

Although the chances of catching up to Ligue 1 leaders, PSG, seem slim, 2nd placed Marseille will nevertheless be keen to ensure they hang onto the second spot in the french top flight which in turn guarantees them Champions League football for next season.

The visitors currently trail the perennial French champions by 7 points and although they’ll never say never, it seems more likely that Marseille will have to settle for 2nd spot which will probably suit them just fine anyway – but they’ll be keen to extend their unbeaten run at Rennes on Friday night though.

Marseille are unbeaten in their last 8 matches overall in Ligue 1 which includes 7 wins, while their results away from home have also picked up in recent times, recording wins at Toulouse and Angers both by 2-0 margins before a 1-1 draw at Metz.

An away record of 4-3-2 12/12 doesn’t look entirely convincing though, so the goals markets may be the best option for the visitors as well, and Marseille have scored in 6 of their 9 away matches to date in the French top flight.


Key-Facts – Rennes vs Marseille

  • 7 of Rennes’ 9 home matches have seen both teams score
  • Marseille have scored in 6 of their 9 away matches to date
  • 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides have seen both teams score
