ERIC: 64

Game of the Week: Rennes v Marseille, Saturday, 8pm (UK)

Jeremy: This weekend’s marquee match is Rennes vs Marseille, with a win for either team going a long way towards securing them Champions League football. Free-scoring Rennes went into their midweek derby against Nantes knowing that three wins from their last three games would have secured them second spot. A surprise defeat – despite having taken the lead – means that the pressure has been cranked up and they’ll be grateful to have home advantage. That said, opponents Marseille have been far more impressive away from home this season and they’ll hope to repeat their win earlier this season in the reverse fixture, in order to retain their second place spot. If Rennes have one of their good days, their firepower could well prove too much for OM.

Eric: After being pegged back by Nantes in midweek, Rennes’ Champions League hopes now hang by a thread – expect an all-out attacking display from the hosts. Marseille’s raft of injuries means this match will be tough and possibly out of their reach while Rennes still have everything to play for.
