Rennes played a match against Nantes on 11 May and lost away 2-1. After that result, the Breton side relegated to 5th place in the standings. They currently have 62 points on their books. The gap from the Champions League zone has increased to 3 points. The chances of qualifying for the Champions League zone remain, but they need to pick up 6 points in the remaining games. In addition, we need to hope for misfires from Monaco and Nice.
Bruno Genesio’s side have been excellent at home this season: B-13, H-1, P-4. 48 goals scored, with one draw and 4 defeats. There are 40 points scored in 18 games. Only one team in Ligue 1 is doing better at home – PSG (48 points).
Furthermore, Rennes are the second most prolific team in France, with 78 goals. Only PSG are more efficient, with 81 goals.
The day before the last match Marseille unexpectedly lost to Lyon (0:3) at home. But in the next game the Provençal rehabilitated themselves by beating Lorient 0-3 away. This success allowed Jorge Sampaoli’s side to remain in 2nd place in the standings (68 points). The gap from 3rd-placed Monaco is 3 points. If Olympique win in the upcoming weekend, the team guarantees themselves participation in the next Champions League draw.
Marseille are not particularly impressive at home this season (29 points in 18 games). At the same time, the team is best in Ligue 1 for the number of points scored away – 39 in 18 games. The away results themselves also look very solid: B-12, H-3, P-3. Goals scored – 30, conceded – 14.

Forecast and bet on Rennes vs Olympique Marseille. Outcome with cf. 2,11
Rennes is insanely good at home this season. But exactly the same can be said about Marseille, but in the context of away matches.
It should not be forgotten that both teams are extremely motivated at the moment. The home side are fighting for third place, while the visitors are trying to hold on to second place. Obviously, a defeat will not satisfy anyone.
Both the home team and the visitors are scoring a lot, but at the same time, they are defending quite well. I think there will be goals here, but most likely we will do without a goal extravaganza. I’m betting on Total Under 2.5.
