Rennes heads into this match motivated after advancing in the French Cup, beating Amiens on penalties. In the last match for the French championship, the home club beat Bordeaux by 1-0. In this match against Olympique Marseille, coach Julien Stéphan should take the field with a more cautious strategy, exploiting only the counterattack: Romain Del Castillo is a very competent player in the offensive transition. On the other hand, striker Niang is Rennes's top scorer with 8 goals scored. For this game the home mister cannot count on Gremier, Johansson and Martin, all with physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: E. Mendy, D. Da Silva, H. Traoré, J. Morel, B. Bourigeaud, F. Maouassa, J. Lea Siliki, E. Camavinga, M. Niang, R. Del Castillo, Raphinha.

At individual level we highlight Darío Benedetto, player who scored 7 goals. For this match, the visiting coach cannot count on punished Hiroki Sakai, as well as injured Mandanda and Thauvin.

Betting suggestion:

This match has all the conditions to be very open and have clear chances of goals, as both teams go through very positive phases of the season. Marseille should dominate possession and act more slowly, creating several chances for goals but struggling to sustain Rennes's strong counterattack. Note that the last 4 matches between these clubs have ended with the market "Both teams score - Yes" winner. Having said that and given these factors, we believe that both Rennes and the Olympique Marseille team can score at least one goal.
