The Ligue 1 is back in action this weekend with another round of games, starting with a match between Rennes and Christophe Galtier’s impressive PSG team on Sunday at the Roazhon Park.
Rennes is currently in fourth place in Ligue 1 and has had a respectable start to the year. After suffering a shocking 2-1 loss to Clermont Foot the previous week, the home team will need to win this game.
PSG, on the other hand, is currently leading the league table and has been in fantastic form thus far this year.
The Parisian giants eased past Angers by a 2-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
In the last 26 games played between the two teams, PSG has prevailed in 15 of them, compared to Rennes’ eight victories, for a strong recent record against Rennes.
Rennes, who have earned five victories during this time, has beaten PSG more frequently than any other team since their takeover in 2011!
Something to find inspiration from!
Yet, PSG is the favourite to win Ligue 1 this year because they have a strong team at their disposal. Last week, Lionel Messi scored his first goal since the World Cup, and he will try to repeat that feat in this match.
