The Ligue 1 is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Marseille take on Rennes on Sunday. Both teams can be impressive on their day and will want to win this game.

Marseille are in third place in the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and have been impressive this season. Les Dogues eased past Monaco by a 2-0 margin in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this match.

Rennes, on the other hand, have struggled this season and are in 11th place in the league table. The away side suffered a shock 2-0 defeat against Reims last weekend and cannot afford another debacle this weekend.

Marseille vs Rennes Prediction

Marseille have made a few important signings this summer and will be intent on Champions League qualification this season. The likes of Dimitri Payet and Konrad de la Fuente can be lethal on their day and will be intent on finding the back of the net this weekend.

Rennes are perfectly capable of pulling off a positive result and will want to step up on Sunday. Marseille are the better team on paper, however, and should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Marseille 3-1 Rennes
