Competition: French Ligue 1
Market: Marseilles to win against Rennes
Odds: 11/8 @ Coral
Rennes welcome the visit of Olympique de Marseilles to Roazhon Park on Thursday evening, and could come unstuck given recent form between the two sides. Rennes and Marseilles are separated by just two places and three points in the French Ligue 1 table, so it’s all to play for this week. Victory for the home side will see them extend their lead over Marseilles, while potentially going level on points with fifth-placed OGC Nice depending on other results, but it won’t be easy.
As for Marseilles, the away side have been in fine form on the road this season. Coming off the back of three consecutive away wins, Marseilles have overcome a poor start in the league and look on course to dispatch of Rennes on Thursday night. Currently 15th in the table after 16 games, a win this week would see them move into the top-half of the table where they can start to put pressure on sides currently in European spots. Marseilles are in the top-four for recent form, and are in good shape to deliver.
Rennes haven’t been picking up many wins of late, dropping points in five of their last six games. Their home form has been particularly poor too, with the underdogs having gone five consecutive games without victory at Roazhon Park, and such struggles in Ligue 1 is likely to see them suffering against Marseilles once more. The visitors have only lost once in their last six so they have proven to be hard to beat. The contrasting form between the two sides sees Marseilles as favourites to pile the misery onto Rennes.
