PSG vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 12th May 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).

PSG’s final home game of the season will be against Rennes and the champions will as ever start off as the odds on favourites to win the game. The Champions League aside PSG have had a terrific season winning the domestic treble. This was wrapped up when the club won the Coupe de France beating National side Les Herbiers 2-0. PSG were the massive favourites to win and it has to be said that Les Herbiers put up a great battle to lose with respect.

PSG have been brillaint but it has been noticeable that in recent weeks the side have failed to be their usual brilliant self. The problem seems to be that the club won the league so early on so the motivation has not been the same. The club have won 52 points from 54 at home and only a recent draw to Guingamp has spoiled what would have been a 100% success rate record.

For Rennes this is a huge game as they are in 5th place and a Europa League one. But St Etienne and Nice are in hot pursuit so this will be a super close finish. Rennes can’t really afford to lose this game but might be happy with a point however they have a poor record against PSG in recent games.
