Rennes vs Marseille Team News

The first half of the season has been tremendous for the side who sit in 3rd place, having garnered 33 points from 18 games. The confidence levels within the club’s dressing room is on a high, as these cluster of players keep racking up the points.

A win over Marseille could see them move to within two points of Andre Villas-Boas’ men, with an important game in hand. Les Rennais will surely be heading out of the tunnel with every intention of securing all three points in the bag.

Rennes have been one of the surprise-packages of the Ligue 1 this season and are on an impressive five home-game winning streak at the moment. Their last game on this ground saw them edge out Bordeaux in what was a close encounter at Roazhon Park.

Both teams played with high intensity from start to finish, with Rennes managing to nick a narrow 1-0 victory over Paulo Sousa’s men.
Clinching maximum points on home turf have been easy-peasy for this cluster but have come in for serious scrutiny for their struggles in front of goal. They have mustered a measly 15 goals in front of the home crowd so far.

Second-placed Marseille, on the other hand, will be looking to secure victory to steer further away from Rennes in third. As such, this can be considered a massive game for Villas-Boas’ men. They will likely go about this game in a very cautious manner.

Their form this season have been bettered by only Paris Saint Germain so far, with the Olympians admitting defeat only once from their previous ten games. Also, they have amassed 25 points from a possible 30.

What can we say about Marseille’s away form this season? Incredible, massive and totally unbelievable. They have lost just two games on the road all season and have maintained an unbeaten status in their last three away games.

Last time out in the league, the Olympians were shockingly held to a one-all draw by lowly Metz but the club’s supporters would not care so much about the dropped points.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Rennes: Jakob Johansson, Jeremy Gelin, Jonas Martin, Clément Grenier.

Marseille: Florian Thauvin, Hiroki Sakai

Pre-Match Odds:

Rennes - 2.84
