Rennes vs Paris Saint-Germain Match Preview
PSG have already gained one small piece of compensation for last season’s defeat to Rennes in the Coupe de France final, and another is expected to come their way on Sunday.
French football’s dominant club were thwarted in both domestic knockout competitions last term, although only by the narrowest of margins in the more prestigious Coupe de France as they lost the final on penalties against Rennes after a 2-2 draw.
That meant the clubs would meet again in the curtain-raiser to this campaign, the Trophee des Champions in Shenzhen, China, two weeks ago and that time Paris Saint-Germain came out on top, overturning Adrien Hunou’s opener with goals from Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria.
Since then, Thomas Tuchel’s side have launched their Ligue 1 title defence with a 3-0 home victory over Nimes which was most notable for their fans displaying a banner urging their wantaway star Neymar, who has been frozen out of the team, to “Get Lost”.
Rennes, meanwhile, also began with a win, 1-0 away to Montpellier, with a goal from veteran defender Jeremy Morel even though they had to play the last 20 minutes a man down after a sending off.
Although they have had more difficulty beating Rennes when silverware has been on the line, PSG made short work of the Red and Blacks in both league meetings last season and are expected to run out comfortable winners once more.
