Soccer Friday: Miller picks Sheffield United vs West Ham United, Rennes vs Marseille, and Moreirense vs Porto

It has been 25 games since a David Moyes-led team last won an away game against top eight opposition.

Friday, West Ham United will try to break that string, as the Hammers head to Yorkshire to take on Sheffield United. The Hammers have not done well in this part of England of late, winning just once in 10 tries. Expect that number of wins to stay the same, as the Blades move into the top five.

In France, Marseille heads to Rennes for a match between the two teams chasing PSG for second spot, which is guaranteed a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage draw next season. This should be a tough battle, but look for Marseille to continue its renaissance.
