PSG vs Rennes
French Super Cup
Date: Saturday, 3 August 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 01:30 CET
Venue: Universiade Sports Centre (Shenzen).
The Parisian club have been dominating the French league for quite some time now. This season, they will be looking forward to adding another title to their legacy as they oppose the team that knocked them out of the french cup in their previous campaign.
Rennes have been a home for many legendary players and cannot be ruled out as they are able to put up a good fight. Cavani and team will be looking forward to taking revenge at the Chinese stadium as both teams are without home advantage.
Les Parisiens will be determined to come out on top this time, especially with the strong line up that is at their disposal. With the new season right around the corner, we can certainly expect both teams to be settling for nothing less than a win in their clash on Saturday.

PSG vs Rennes Prediction
The reigning Ligue 1 Champions will be looking for an easy clean sheet win at the Sports Centre this weekend. Their counterparts will have to parallelly look towards their defensive lines to stop the rain of attacks at their end of the field.
Despite Neymar being not named in the final eleven, Tuchel’s team are still a tough force to restrain, given the likes of World cup holder Kylian Mbappe, and the goal-scoring machine Edinson Cavani.
Rennes have conceded in every game especially in their trips on the road while the release of Hatem Ben Arfa as a leader makes them weaker as a team. He was the key to many victories in the last season for the Rennes.
Despite the dubious results of the previous friendly matches that Paris St Germain took part in and lost, they should surely win over the Rennes side with a 3-0 scorecard on the deck. We can certainly expect an exciting clash to unfold when they lock horns with each other on Saturday right until the final whistle blows.
