Rennes – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
Olympique de Marseille got scared but passed the Trélissac obstacle in pain (1-1, 4 tab 2) during this 1/32 final of the Coupe de France this Sunday afternoon. A difficult qualification but which is a continuation of what the Marseille club has been doing since the end of October. Indeed, since that date, Dimitri Payet’s partners (6 goals) have been unbeaten from all competitions and have just gleaned 10 points out of 12 in play in the league in Angers (2-0), against Bordeaux (3-1), in Metz (1-1) and ahead of Nîmes (3-1). Stade Rennais also passed this 1/32 round of the Coupe de France not without difficulty against Amiens (0-0, 5 tab 4) this Saturday and took their revenge compared to their elimination in the Coupe de la Ligue against the same Picard team (3-2) on December 18. The current 3rd in Ligue 1 is in an ongoing series of 5 straight wins, the last two in Lyon (1-0) and against Bordeaux (1-0).
