Rennes
Paris Saint Germain

Ligue 1 regulars Rennes will host champions Paris Saint-Germain at Stade de la Route-de-Lorient on Sunday. Rennes have made an underwhelming start to their season as they find themselves in the ninth spot in the table. Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain have made a perfect start to their title defence, and they sit at the top of the table with a five-point lead. However, they were at the receiving end of a 3-2 defeat at Liverpool in a midweek Champions League fixture.

The Ligue 1 side have made a fine start to life under Thomas Tuchel. They have picked up maximum points from their first five games, and they have won each game with a margin of more than one goal. Furthermore, Rennes have lost two of their five games. Hence, we favour an away win in our Rennes vs Paris Saint-Germain best odds. We also expect a lot of goals in the game as PSG have scored at least three goals in each of their league games this season. Four out of PSG’s five games have ended with a minimum of four goals this season.

Rennes vs Paris Saint-Germain Betting Tips: Form Guide

Rennes aiming to move up the table

Rennes achieved an impressive fifth-place finish last season. However, they have failed to match those standards in the early weeks of the season as they find themselves in the ninth spot with seven points.

The Red and Blacks were involved in Europa League action on Thursday, and they managed a 2-1 home win over Czech side FK Jablonec. In the league, Rennes suffered a 1-2 defeat at Nice in their last game. That defeat was preceded by home wins over Angers and Bordeaux, and a 2-2 away draw at Marseille.

Rennes have picked up six points from their two home games without conceding a goal. However, we can’t imagine them keeping a clean sheet against PSG.

Wide player Ismaila Sarr is Rennes’ top-scorer in Ligue 1 with two goals. He was also on target in the Europa League win on Thursday. Jordan Siebatcheu has led the attack in the last two games in all competitions without finding a goal. He might make way for M’Baye Niang, who is still looking for his first start of the season. Hatem Ben Arfa is yet to make a league appearance for Rennes, but he came off the bench on Thursday. We could also see him in action on Sunday.

Adrien Hunou is ruled out and Ludovic Baal is a doubt for the hosts.

PSG looking to cement their grip at top

Paris Saint-Germain would aim to bounce back against Rennes following their midweek disappointment in Liverpool. The French champions might come up short in Europe, but their dominance in French football is unquestionable.

They have started their title defence in style and they have been scoring goals for fun. PSG have scored 17 goals in their five games this season and have conceded only four. In their last league, Tuchel’s players claimed a 4-0 home win over Saint-Etienne and that result was preceded by an away 4-2 win at Nimes.

The capital club have played two away games in Ligue 1 so far, and they have won both games with a margin of two goals. However, they have failed to keep a clean sheet on the road this season.

Both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have scored four goals each in the league. However, Mbappe is suspended for the game due to the red card he picked up against Nimes. Edison Cavani is not far behind the expensive duo with three goals.

The visitors are without full-backs Dani Alves and Layvin Kurzawa due to injuries. Marco Verratti missed the trip to Liverpool, but he should come back into the starting eleven against Rennes.

Rennes vs Paris Saint-Germain Preview: Recent Meetings

In last 28 Ligue 1 meetings between these two sides, PSG have picked up 12 wins and Rennes have managed 11. Five meetings have ended in draws.

However, in recent years, PSG have maintained a total dominance over Rennes with the exception of their last meeting with their opponents. Rennes claimed a 2-0 upset win at Parc des Princes in May earlier this year. However, it must be noted that PSG had already wrapped up their league title by then, and the game was rather inconsequential for them. Prior to the unexpected defeat in May, the French champions were on a six-game winning run against their opponents in Ligue 1. PSG claimed a 4-1 win in the corresponding fixture last season.

Hence, the recent head-to-head record clearly indicates a comfortable away win in Rennes vs Paris Saint-Germain predictions.

Rennes vs Paris Saint-Germain Prediction

Rennes achieved their best season finish in more than a decade as they ended the Ligue 2017-18 season in the fifth spot. As a result, the Rennes-based club find themselves playing in Europa League this season and they have made a winning start to their continental campaign.

It has been a common sight to see football clubs struggling in their respective leagues due to their Europa League commitments. We can see a similar fate for Rennes in Ligue 1 this season. They produced a huge effort to win their game on Thursday, and they only get a two-day break before their game against PSG. We expect manager Sabri Lamouchi to ring in some changes to his starting eleven on Sunday.

Paris Saint-Germain are under a new manager in Thomas Tuchel, but they haven’t taken long to exert their dominance in the new Ligue 1 season. Lack of a genuine title challenger to PSG is quite obvious in Ligue 1, and it appears that Parisian side would once again run away with the league title.

PSG were involved in a gruelling battle against Liverpool on Tuesday, and they have a league assignment on next Wednesday. Thus, we could see some squad rotation from Tuchel against Rennes. Nevertheless, the visitors remain huge favourites to win.
