Match Preview & Team News
Two top-three sides will open the Ligue 1 Matchday in a super-exciting tie on Friday evening at Roazhon Park. Both teams ended the year on a high, but someone’s positive streak is about to come to an end here.
Les Rouges et Noirs head into the clash on the back of five subsequent league wins
Rennes climbed up to the sky-high third place in the Ligue 1 ladder thanks to a fascinating five-win streak. They conceded only two goals in the process keeping their net untouched in the last two wins over the likes of Lyon and Bordeaux. Julien Stephan’s troops won six of nine league fixtures at Roazhon Park this term. They continued the stellar defensive form last weekend playing a goalless draw to Amiens in the last 64 round of the French Cup, but advanced on penalties. The team thus won six and drew one of the last seven matches on the home court across competitions without conceding a single goal in the last three games along the way.
The Phocians won seven and drew one of the last eight league affairs
Marseille are five points clear off the third-placed Rennes who have a game in hand on them. However, the Champions League football (a top-three finish in the Ligue 1) is very much achievable after a splendid streak of seven victories and a draw in the last eight league rounds. What could worry the head coach Andre Villas-Boas is his men’s sloppy display against an amateur side Trelissac in the weekend’s Coupe de France action. Even though the Portuguese manage used most of his first-team regulars, the Phocians needed penalties to eliminate such an opposition after a 1-1 draw in the regular time.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Four of the last five head to head meetings ended without a winner. The draw is truly the closest of the three outcomes and we will back it at the odds of 11/5.
Goals Market Prediction
Rennes played tight at the back lately which is why the Under 2.5 goals FT pick looks delicious at the 8/11 odds. We’ll also go for the 1-1 score at the 5/1 odds.
