PSG News and Form

It was as easy as you like from PSG last season in Ligue 1. They cruised to yet another league title. This time it was by a margin of 16 points over Lille. As of yet, PSG haven’t been dipping heavily into the summer transfer market, which is a little unusual for them. They have also taken a step towards keeping Neymar on board and happy. He looked as if he couldn’t wait to get out of the door earlier in the summer.

Twelve months ago PSG beat Monaco 4-0 in the Super Cup and that was their seventh straight title. It’s a remarkable run of form and one that doesn’t look like being snapped any time soon. This game is being hosted in Shenzhen, China. Once again the Parisians are red-hot odds-on favourites for the title. But they will have some painful recent memories of having met Rennes. Just back in April, they lost the French Cup final to them.

Rennes News and Form

You won’t have found many punters expecting Rennes to come away with the French Cup title back in April. They faced up to the reigning champions PSG in the Final. However, instead of just making up the numbers in the game, Rennes just wouldn’t go away. It was a 2-2 draw after extra time that the Final produced after Rennes had been 2-0 down within 21 minutes. Rennes then triumphed in the subsequent penalty shootout. Can they pull off some repeat heroics? The win in the Super Cup had come after 3-1 and 4-1 defeats against PSG in the league that season. Because of that French Cup win, they are going up against PSG for another piece of silverware. Rennes finished tenth in Ligue 1 last season. PSG scored almost twice as many goals as they did during the campaign. Rennes have won the Super Cup once before, all the way back in 1971.

PSG v Rennes Predictions

PSG to win: Just because of one loss on penalties, there is no reason to suggest that PSG are going to lose this title to Rennes. They have a massive head to head record in recent form going against Rennes and can get the job done. Their record in the Super Cup speaks for itself. PSG to win & both teams to score.
