Rennes vs PSG
Coupe de France Final
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de France (Saint-Denis)
The Coupe de France final will be between Rennes and PSG and as normal it will be PSG who will be expected to win and will start the game as odds on favourites to do so.
Rennes will be aiming to salvage their season by winning the prestigious premier cup competition in France, while PSG will be looking to wrap up a domestic double after winning the league last weekend.
Rennes had to beat Lyon 3-2 in the semi-final stage to get here and PSG conquered Nantes by winning fairly easy in a game that finished 3-0.
Incredibly PSG have won this competition for the last 4 years in a row. Last year they beat national amateur side Les Herbiers 2-0. Rennes last got to a Coupe de France final in 2009 where they lost 2-1 against Guingamp. Rennes have not won this cup competition since 1971 so it would obviously be big news for the club to be the victor at the weekend.
Rennes vs PSG: Head to Head
PSG have won 8 of the last 9 meetings against Rennes.
This is the 3rd year in a row that the teams will play each other in the Coupe de France. In the other games PSG won both times, winning 6-1 and 4-0.
In the last 5 meetings PSG have scored 16 goals against Rennes.
Rennes vs PSG: Prediction
Anything can happen in a Cup final match and this is why we can’t completely discount Rennes for this game. They should start very compact and make the game difficult to flow.
On the other side PSG have Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani all back and Neymar especially after missing PSG’s league title run in will want to win the cup for his team and make this final about him.
PSG just have too much class and they have goals from everywhere. Shocks can happen in football of course but as this game goes on we believe PSG will simply be too strong for Rennes.
Backing PSG to win makes no sense as their price is around 1.20 (1/5); so while we think PSG will win there is no value in backing them, so below we have the two best choices from this game.
