Rennes vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 23rd September 2018
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
Roazhon Park is sure to be a sell out when PSG visit here on Sunday afternoon to play Rennes.
Rennes are in 9th place on 7 points and have had a mixed start to the league where they have lost 2 games from their first five. They lost last weekend away to Nice by 2-1. At home though they are unbeaten winning both games and they have not conceded a goal whilst they have scored three.
PSG have been completely dominant in the league winning their first five games and already have a 5 point gap at the top. But it hasn’t been all plain sailing for Thomas Tuchel’s men after they were beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League by 3-2.
In fairness PSG did well to come back from 2 goals down but they will need to learn how to play well away in Europe if they are to claim Europe’s biggest prize.
PSG will want to put that disappointment behind them and continue to win games in Ligue 1 and they have a fantastic record over their opponents and will be expected to get all three points on offer.
Rennes vs PSG: Head to Head
- PSG have won the last 6 games in a row when playing at Roazhon Park.
- PSG have scored 17 goals in their last 4 visits to Rennes.
- The last 3 games played at Rennes have seen both teams to score.
Rennes vs PSG: Prediction
PSG will just refocus after the Liverpool loss because they have a plan in Ligue 1 to go the whole season unbeaten and create new records under Tuchel.
Rennes have shown a lot of quality at home and we expect them to score. For PSG they will miss Kylian Mbappe as he is serving his 3 game suspension for his red card earlier in the month.
But, Edinson Cavani loves playing against Rennes and will be a major threat alongside Neymar.
