          PSG vs Rennes Prediction & Betting Tips

          Rennes travel to face PSG in this weekend’s Ligue 1 fixture. It will be a difficult task to topple them, as the hosts try and extend their healthy lead at the top.

          Date: 25/02/24

          Kick-off time: 16:05

          Venue: Parc des Princes

          PSG sit top of the league, and are well on their way to winning a third consecutive title. They are 13 points clear with 16 games remaining, so it will take a monumental collapse for them to relinquish their position. Rennes are seventh and are firmly in the race for European football next season. Four points separate themselves and Monaco in fifth, though Nice and Lille are also within reach above them. It will be a tense finish to the season, with around seven teams fighting for two or three places. However, they have won five league games in a row, so they are finding form at the right time, putting them in a great position to climb the table.

          Luis Enrique’s side have the best attack in the league, and are amongst the division’s best defences. Kylian Mbappe is by far the most prolific with 21 goals in 20 games. He leads Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder by 10, with no one on his level in terms of quality. Benjamin Bourigeaud is Rennes’ top scorer, but he has just six, with the goals spread around the squad. The team will look to him and Arnaud Kalimuendo to provide a scoring threat.

          There has not been much to split the two sides in recent seasons. In fact Rennes have slightly edged the last five games, winning three to PSG’s two. The first meeting was a 2-0 win in Rennes favour, with their goals coming just before the break and straight after the restart. Neither team has won two games in a row, highlighting the competitiveness between the pair.

          Earlier this season, they met in the reverse fixture at Roahzon Park. PSG came out on top as 3-1 winners. The deadlock was broken in the 32nd minute by Vitinha, and the lead was doubled soon after through Achraf Hakimi. Amine Gouiri got one back to threaten a comeback, but they were unable to complete it as Randal Kolo Muani added a third.

          Form Guide

          PSG

          In their last five games, PSG have been perfect, winning all of them. It began with a 2-1 victory away at Strasbourg, in which they went ahead through Kylian Mbappe. Marco Asensio doubled the lead just after the restart, before Dilane Bakwa pulled one back for the hosts.

          A 3-1 win against Brest meant that they advanced to the quarter-finals of the French Cup. Mbappe and Danilo Pereira scored two goals in quick succession to give them a comfortable lead. Steve Mounie responded for Brest to make the game interesting, but his side had a man sent off a few minutes later, making their task difficult. Goncalo Ramos scored a third in stoppage time to put the game to bed. It was back to Ligue 1 in the next game, as they beat third place Lille 3-1 to maintain their healthy gap at the top of the table. Lille had actually taken the lead in the sixth minute, but Ramos got PSG back on level terms shortly after. An own goal put the hosts in front for the first time. Randal Kolo Muani ensured the win with another goal late in the second half.

          They returned to Champions League action last midweek, as they defeated Real Sociedad 2-0 in the first leg of the last 16. Goals from Mbappe and Bradley Barcola has put them in a commanding position ahead of the return leg. Their most recent game was a 2-0 victory over Nantes at the weekend. Lucas Hernandez opened the scoring with half an hour to go in a game which PSG dominated with possession but managed the same amount of shots as their opponents. Mbappe started on the bench but he came on to convert a penalty to secure three points.

          Rennes

          In their last five games, Rennes have won four and lost one. A 2-1 win against Montpellier started this run of fixtures. Martin Terrier gave them a very early lead before Arnaud Kalimuendo doubled their advantage from the penalty spot. The visitors pulled one back, but were unable to mount a comeback.

          A 6-1 win at Sochaux, who play in the third tier, meant they advanced to the quarter-final of the French Cup. They were 4-0 up at half-time as they eliminated any opportunity of an upset early on. Le Havre were their next opponents, and it was a tough game. They came out as 1-0 winners in what was a tight affair. There was not much to split the two sides, but Benjamin Bourigeaud’s 60th-minute winner proved the difference.

          AC Milan were too strong for Rennes in the Europa League, as they dispatched of them comfortably with a 3-0 win. The French side now face a premature exit from the competition unless they miraculously overturn this deficit in the second leg. They returned to league action last weekend with a home game against Clermont Foot. It ended in a 3-1 win, with a brace from Terrier adding to Warmed Omari’s opener.
