Rennes vs PSG
Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 1st February 2017
Kick-off: 20:00 UK
Venue: Roazhon Park, Rennes.
Unai Emery was so unlucky to see his team conceding a 92nd minute goal in the derby with Monaco on Sunday evening. It was not the best of the performances PSG showed so far in the season since Monaco had the initiative throughout most part of the match.
Anyhow, it has been a pretty solid campaign so far in the season for the Spanish manager since he reached the League Cup final and he is still only three points behind Nice and Monaco at the top of Ligue 1 standings.
It will be interesting to see if Emery is going to use Edinson Cavani on Wednesday. The Uruguayan striker has been red-hot recently netting as many as five goals in last three matches. He is definitely the man to chase for anytime goalscorer pick at 8/13 odds.
Rennes are winless in last six league matches playing three draws and suffering three defeats. Christian Gourcuff’s men failed to score two or more goals in each of the last six games and they were lucky to have avoided a defeat on Saturday afternoon thanks to Joris Gnagnon who leveled the score against Nantes only four minutes before the final whistle.

Rennes vs PSG: Prediction
The bookmakers are not generous at all offering 4/11 on the away win which is why we’ll go with a bit riskier option mentioned above. Alternatively, PSG are 4/5 to keep a clean sheet which also represents a decent value knowing that the hosts have huge troubles finding the net in the recent period.
