France Ligue 1 - Rennes vs Marseille

Pick:

1x2 Draw  @

Analysis:

Marseille will travel to Roazhon Park to take on fourth-place Stade Rennes on this Saturday.

Rennes
As they rank fifth at the table of the League at present, they are battling for automatic entry into next season's Champions League group phase. Rennes have the second best home record in the division with 13 wins, one draw and four defeats. They are discourged for a 2-1 loss to Nantes in the last game and the end of a winning streak.

Marseille
Marseille have been impressive this season.The foundation for their improvement this season has been their stellar away form. Marsellie have the best away record in Ligue 1 with 12 wins, three draws and three defeats from their 18 matches with a goal differential of +16. They responded positively after disappointingly being bounced from the Europa Conference League semifinals by defeating Lorient convincingly by a score of 3-0 away from home.


Verdict:
A bad news for Marseille that Dimitrie Payet is still on the bench due to injury. Rennes show great competitiveness when in their homefield. We expected to see a narrow victory for Rennes or a tight tie in the coming game.
