Team News

  • Rennes will be without Onyekachi Apam, who has a thigh problem, while Victor Montano and John Mensah are both unavailable.
  • John Boye, Cheick Diarra and Jonathan Pitroipa are all in South Africa competing in the African Cup of Nations.
  • Marseille have an almost fully fit squad to choose from, but will be without Charles Kabore and Foued Kadir, who are both away at the African Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • Rennes will be looking to continue their fine run of form when they entertain Marseille in Brittany.
  • The Coupe de la Ligue finalists made it three wins in four league games with a comfortable 2-0 win over Bastia, but will face a stiffer challenge against a Marseille side that came from behind to overcome Montpellier.
  • Frederic Antonetti's men can move within three points of the visitors with a win, however with Rennes lacking numbers in defence, and with the Ayew brothers and Andre-Pierre Gignac all finding the net last week, L'OM may go into the contest as slight favourites.
  • Marseille also had troubles at the back last time out, so an open game is to be expected. Both of these sides possess considerable talent in attack, so do not be surprised if a high scoring affair ensues.
