This is a battle of two of the top three sides and can be tough to predict, especially when looking at the teams’ recent runs. Marseille are unbeaten in nine matches, with seven wins, which means they have the confidence going to this game. Their only worry comes in the fact that they have not been so good away from home. On the other hand, Rennes have been good in their last five matches and are unbeaten in seven matches at home. They have scored well in the last seven home matches. They have the third best defence in the league thus far, and basing on their defensive strengths, as well as the fact that they will be at home, we will go for a win for the home team.
