Marseille will be aiming to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they host Rennes at the Orange Velodrome on Sunday night. Marseille suffered an unexpected 3-1 defeat on the road at the newly-promoted Nimes last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Florian Thauvin just after the break. On the flip side, Rennes managed to secure a hard-fought 1-0 home win thanks to a late goal from Ismaila Sarr. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
OM haven’t been at their best over the past three months, winning just three of their last ten games across all competitions. Last weekend, Marseille were humiliated on the road at Nimes, having lost that game 3-1. The positive fact is that Marseille have won each of their last four games in Ligue 1. Furthermore, OM have been the third-best home team in the league last season, losing just two of their 19 fixtures.
On the other hand, Rennes kicked off the new Ligue 1 season with a 3-1 defeat at Lille, but managed to get back to winning ways last weekend with a 1-0 home triumph against Angers. It has to be said that Rennes were on a seven-game unbeaten streak on the road in Ligue 1 prior to their opening trip at Lille.
Although Marseille’s recent head-to-head record against Rennes is not that strong, we still fancy them to get back to winning ways here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Marseille to win at odds 1.50.
