December 1, 2010: Olympique de Marseille 0-0 Stade Rennes

Left to rue a penalty miss by Jires Ekoko after Steve Mandanda had brought down Victor Montano in the fifth minute, Rennes were ultimately held to a goalless draw at the Stade Velodrome in a twice-postponed encounter.

Players to Watch

Excellent in recent weeks, striker Victor Montano will be required to maintain his impressive form on Friday. In a match where the emphasis is likely to be on solid defending, a single moment of brilliance in front of goal may make all the difference.
Lucho González
Lucho González
Position: Midfielder
Squad Number: 8

Asserting dominance in midfield will be of the utmost importance, and Marseille will look to Lucho Gonzalez to orchestrate their attacking forays. A top quality performance from the midfielder could lead the southerners to a positive result in Brittany.
While both teams will be desperate to claim all three points, they will also be aware that to grant their opponent victory in such a decisive clash would have disastrous consequences. Expect Rennes and Marseille to once again share the spoils in a tight and measured encounter.
