Marseille Vs Rennes

Cameroon Striker Clinton Njie has early form and has already scored three goals so far.
Rennes on the other hand are in a difficult spot after managing two draws and two defeats from their opening four games. The team however is scoring goals and this may work in their favor soon. In the previous 38 meetings between these two teams, Marseille has won 18 of these meetings and Rennes has won 12 matches. These teams have drawn 12 times in all the meetings.
