Rennes vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 18th August 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
These two teams have no love lost between them and it all stems from the Coupe de France final last season where Rennes shocked PSG and beat them. This led to a fan confronting Neymar and that started the ball rolling for Neymar to possibly exit PSG. He isn’t expected to play for the club again. The teams then met in the curtain raiser for Ligue 1 and PSG got their revenge. So this match should be a cracker.
Rennes started the season with a fantastic 1-0 win against Montpellier and it was away from home which really laid down a statement as they were not the favourites to win that game. Was it a one off performance, or is this a sign of things to come?
As for PSG they kick started their season off in style by beating Nimes 3-0 at home. It was a fairly routine win for the champions and saw Edinson Cavani get on the score sheet, he was possibly going to leave the club in the summer but has stayed. And one of the best forwards in the world Kylian Mbappe also scored so he is already up and running.

Rennes vs PSG: Prediction
Rennes used to get thrashed by PSG and the cup final seemed to have changed their mentality. This will be a very difficult match for Rennes but they will have their chances in this game and be dangerous. This is why we are going to back Rennes on the handicap.
PSG are very strong but on the road they are of course unproven this season. So our bet and our only main one is to go big on Rennes on the handicap.
This could be a heated game and all of the pressure will actually be on the champions not to lose.
