Marseille have won three of the last five H2H duels with Rennes, with the other two ending in draws. However, their latest duel was in Coupe de France and Rennes ultimately won that match on penalties. Overall, the H2H record is 50-35-33 for Marseille.

Rennes preview: Hoping to get back to winning

After winning six in a row in the league, Rennes have now gone three games in a row without a victory, slowing down a bit. This latest stretch hurt their chances of securing a place in Europe for next season, but they are still close enough and with nine games left to be played, the hope is certainly there.

Meanwhile, Enzo Le Fee and Fabian Rieder are the only players sidelined with injurie at Rennes right now.

Marseille preview: Will Marseille win four in a row in the league?

After appointing Jean Louis Gasseta as their manager, Marseille have won five games in a row in all competitions, ending that streak with a loss to Villarreal few days ago, though they still eliminated the Spanish team from Europa League to secure a place in the quarter-finals. Meanwhile, their three-game winning streak in Ligue 1 is still alive.

When it comes to team news, Marseille are missing Bilal Nadir, Samuel Gigot, Amir Murillo, and Valentin Rongier through injuries.

Player to watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

With all due respect to other Marseille players, everything revolves around Aubameyang this season, at least on the offensive end. After all, he is the top scorer for the team in Ligue 1 by far with 11 goals and he has the most assists as well, seven.

Another goal for Aubameyang against Rennes?

In his career, the Gabonese international played against Rennes 13 times and he managed to score seven goals against them, while also adding three assists. So, he has a proven track record against this team and we could see him add to his tally in this match.
