Tip Reasoning

  • Rennes have won nine of their last ten home league games.
  • Marseille sustained four new injuries at Lorient this week while Dimitri Payet has been ruled out for the season.
  • Rennes have no room to lose while Marseille can drop points and still finish in the top three.

Rennes can run Marseille close in crucial clash

The best away team in Ligue 1 could come unstuck at Roazhon Park on Saturday as Marseille attempt to lock up a top three finish and knock Rennes out of the European places. The visitors, who have won ten of their last 13 away games, are looking battle-weary now after four more players went down in their midweek win over Lorient.

In addition to the dreaded news that star man Dimitri Payet has been ruled out for the season, this is a worrying time for Jorge Sampaoli’s side as they attempt to finish off the job of coming second to PSG. Monaco keep nipping at their heels and the pressure could all come to tell this weekend when they take on a side who rarely fail to win at home.

Bruno Genesio’s side were left to lament a second-half Nantes fightback in midweek that makes it almost impossible for them to crash the Champions League race. But a spot in Europe is within their grasp and they will surely come out with a positive gameplan as Genesio seeks a reaction to the events of Wednesday night.

Injury-hit visitors could buckle

Despite their clearly demonstrated ability to pick up wins on the road, this doesn’t feel like the time to be backing Marseille because of the injury pile-up. A number of their players have been flat, out playing two games a week for the past three months and Rennes can capitalise on any lack of energy in their guests’ performance.

So the recommendation here is to back the hosts and a 2-1 correct score play is also worth a small tickle. Marseille have scored in their last 21 away games in all competitions, so even without important players like Cedric Bakambu, Bamba Dieng, Gerson and Duje Caleta-Car, they should still carry a decent goal threat.
