Rennes vs Marseille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park, Rennes.
Marseille have climbed the table and come into the Matchday 26 clash at Rennes in a great mood as they travel to Roazhon Park on the back of a three-game winning streak, where they beat Bordeaux, Dijon, and Amiens.
Les Phoceens have been solid at the back and led primarily by in-form Mario Balotelli in the attacking third, as the Italian found the net three times in four appearances under Rudi Garcia. They will now be very motivated to keep it up and catch up with the 2nd placed Lille, now sitting ten points behind the spots leading to Champions League next term.
However, Rennes will have plans of their own and have high hopes they can keep up in such a chase despite injury woes and losing on their consistency. They’ve seen a disappointing 2-0 loss at Reims but bounced back with a great 1-3 Europa League win at Betis – which saw them through to the next round and now promises Julien Stephan’s men in a great mood once again!
Rennes vs Marseille: Head-to-head
Rennes snatched an important point in a thriller 2-2 draw at Orange Velodrome earlier this term.
Red and Blacks suffered just one loss in the last four head-to-head clashes, with two wins also on the records.
We’ve seen a great share of thrillers between the sides lately, with 15 goals in the last four matches.
Rennes vs Marseille: Prediction
We will now back Rennes to show off as a tough side to beat at Roazhon Park once again and we’ll stick our necks out for a Home win at 3.00, seeing them regularly netting numbers of goals here and hoping to see them keep it up on the day.
We feel they will need just that as we have a high-scoring contest looming, which also has us backing Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.90 as possibly the best way to go about the fixture! We’ve seen both sides enjoying their goalscoring spells lately and this feels like further evidence for such a bet.
