Forecast and bet on Rennes vs Marseille, stats, odds. In the French championship match on May 14, the Red and Blacks take on the challenging Provencals. What to expect from the meeting of the leaders?
This season, Rennes made it through to the play-offs of the Conference League, where they failed to qualify in the first leg when Leicester were standing in their way. They finished early in the French Cup, in a fiasco at the hands of modest Nancy in a penalty shoot-out.
After 36 rounds in the current Ligue 1 championship, the Red and Black have amassed 19 wins and five peaceful outcomes, which have brought them 62 points and fifth place in the table. After their 2-0 success against Saint-Etienne, the home side lost 1-2 to Nantes.
Gehlen, Sulemane, Doku and Bade, who has a muscular injury, cannot play today.
Marseille also enjoyed a good start to the Conference last season as they qualified from the group stage, before clinching victories against Karabakh, Basel and PAOK in the spring phase. It was only in the semi-finals that the Southerners halted their tournament run when they failed to overcome Feyenoord.
In Ligue1, after 36 rounds of the current campaign, the Bianconeri have recorded 20 wins and eight peaceful results, which have brought them 68 points and second place in the table. After a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Lyon, the visitors defeated Lorient 3-0.
Milic, Payet, De La Fuente, Balerdi and Bacamba cannot play today.
Both teams have no margin for error in this match, which will only add to the motivation and degree of tension on the football field. Most likely, we will see the traditional scenario of head-to-head encounters, where both opponents will try not to concede, because in such duels everything is often decided by 1-2 goals, which we do not rule out today.
Our prediction is total less than 2.5 goals and we’ll bet on it at odds of 2.19 on 1xbet.
We assume it’s worth paying attention to the peaceful outcome option today. In 9 out of the last 10 matches the teams have not played a draw, which cannot be ruled out today. Moreover, this outcome option would suit both clubs quite well.
Our second bet is a draw for 3.84
