Marseille vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 10 March 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
Marseille had only one win in their last 11 Ligue 1 clashes in the schedule. Having lost their chance in the French Cup this season, it disgraced the host, losing to a fourth-tier side in the tournament. They have been winless in the recent three league fixtures, including the 2-0 loss on the road last time out.
Rennes is on a further downside this season and is just two points behind the host. The away team has lost their last four clashes in the campaign and has been winless in their recent seven attempts. They will visit after suffering a 1-0 loss on the road against Lyon last time out in their schedule.

Marseille vs Rennes Prediction
Marseille has been caught in a tough spot in the league owing to their winless run. They had only one win in the last 11 clashes in the campaign, as mentioned earlier. Apart from that, the loss in the French Cup will affect the morale of the players in the middle.
Rennes slid down to eighth place on the table with four consecutive defeats in the league. The away team is more troubled than the host in Ligue 1 this season. Their losing streak and poor form on the road will put them far away from the three points in the upcoming clash.
With both teams in a mixed form, expect a defensive approach from both teams. There isn’t a bright chance for an open play with the teams averaging close to 1.3 goals in the league so far this season. The host has gained some points in their recent clashes, which gives them a slight edge over the traveling side.
