Marseille vs Rennes Prediction & Match Preview
Sunday, September 29 – 15:00 EST – Stade Vélodrome
It seems as though the momentum André Villas-Boas’ men were picking up has come to a steady halt. Marseille drew bottom club Dijon 0-0 in what was a disappointing match for the home side. Following this match, they drew Montpellier last week 1-1. They have been decent up front, not having too many issues in finding the back of the net. On the other hand, their defensive record has not been great, conceding seven goals in their last seven matches. Marseille are unbeaten in their last four clashes with Rennes but they have only managed to win one of these.
The visitors lost their midweek away match 1-0 against Nantes. Rennes were poor in this match where they struggled to create. This loss ended their three-match run of draws. Furthermore, Rennes were due for a loss as they have put up a series of rather poor performances. With this being said, they currently sit in ninth place just one point behind Marseille. Winning this match will help this side climb up the Ligue 1 standings.
