Rennes vs Marseille Prediction & Match Preview

Rennes vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).

Rennes recorded their first victory in four games as they beat Nice 1-0 last weekend. This ended a terrible period for the club who have seen their top 3 status evaporate in recent weeks.

Rennes are now in 8th place but a win could see them back into the top six depending on how other results map out. At home the club have simply not been good enough losing as much as they have won in 3 games.

The problem coming into this match for Rennes is that they have lost their last two home games in row and their match here ended in defeat against Lens.

Marseille alongside Lyon have the best form in the league and have won their last 5 matches in a row. Marseille are in 4th place and are just 2 points from the top.

Whilst the club have been poor in Europe and going out of the Champions League they have excelled in Ligue 1 and last weekend they overcame Monaco in a big clash winning that one 2-1.

Away form is good with 3 wins in a row and in fact Marseille has the best away record in the league where they have won 16 of a possible 18 points.

Rennes vs Marseille: Head to Head

  • Last season Marseille won this fixture 1-0.
  • Rennes have not won at home to Marseille in league games since 2016.
  • The last 3 league meetings have ended in under 2.5 goals.

Rennes vs Marseille: Prediction

This will be an exciting game as both sides are capable of creating many chances and attacks, so one of our choices will be both teams to score.

There is a pattern recently of not seeing many goals in this fixture but this is set to change for the midweek clash and goals could be what this match is all about.

It is a market we should concentrate more on than picking a winner because these sides are very close, and we have to respect that Rennes are at home even if Marseille has a very good away record.

Rennes vs Marseille Bet Tips:

  • Both teams to score at 1.72 (8/11)
  • Over 2.5 goals at 2.00 (1/1).
