Match Preview

  • Knocked out of the French Cup by fourth-tier side Canet-en-Roussillon last weekend (2-1), disgraced Marseille are also winless in ten of their last 11 Ligue 1 (L1) matches (W1, D5, L5), despite trailing at HT only once across that period (HT: W3, D7, L1). Unsurprisingly, Marseille have converted only 21.43% of their HT draws into wins this L1 campaign (W3, D8, L3).
  • Although unbeaten in their previous two top-flight home matches (W1, D1), Marseille remain one of just two L1 sides yet to keep a clean sheet at home this term. However they should score at least once here, as ‘Les Olympiens’ have found the net in the last 13 top-flight H2Hs at all venues – their longest such run against Rennes since February 1974!
  • Visiting Rennes will hope to avoid a fifth consecutive L1 defeat, and therefore their worst such streak since April 2014. A win would actually see them leapfrog their opponents in the table, but turning their fortunes around could depend on a good start as Rennes are unbeaten in all nine L1 games in which they led at HT (W5, D4).
  • The visitors may have won the reverse fixture 2-1, but they’ve not completed a league double over Marseille since 2000/01. If they wish to achieve that then starting well should be a priority, as Rennes are winless in all seven away league matches in which they failed to score before HT this season (D4, L3).
  • Players to watch: Arriving on loan from Napoli in January, Arkadiusz Milik has scored one goal during the 35’-‘HT period in three of his four competitive starts with Marseille. For the visitors, in-form Martin Terrier has been involved in six of Rennes’ last nine L1 goals (three goals, three assists).
  • Hot stat: Seven of the last eight L1 H2Hs have witnessed the home side on the day fail to score before HT.
