Rennes Olympique Marseille betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game is the existence of few goals. Olympique Marseille have a superior squad compared to their opponents, and it is natural that they create several opportunities to score goals. On the other hand, Rennes should enter the field with a defensive mentality, looking only for the counterattack to create danger. Thus, we believe that risking in favor of a match with few goals is of great value.
