PSG vs Rennes

Paris Saint-Germain’s stroll to another Ligue 1 title sees them welcome Stade Rennes to the Parc des Princes on Sunday afternoon.

Luis Enrique’s side have been making the headlines almost exclusively because of Kylian Mbappe’s future, but the Spanish coach is currently doing a very steady job. They are 13 points ahead of Stade Brest at the top of Ligue 1, and they have one foot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Rennes started the season very poorly and were floating around the relegation zone, but they have been in great form recently and have risen to seventh. They were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday by AC Milan, despite winning the second leg 3-2.

Here is 90min’s preview of PSG vs Rennes.

The main area of concern for PSG when it comes to injuries is at centre-back. Marquinhos had to be withdrawn in the second half of the match against Nantes and he did not train fully with the team on Thursday. That is even more important when you consider that Presnel Kimpembe and Milan Skriniar are out of action.

Layvin Kurzawa and Sergio Rico are also unavailable, but they may be welcoming Nuno Mendes back to the fold for this match. Despite the fact that he was on the bench against Nantes, Kylian Mbappe is expected to come back into the starting eleven.

Arnaud Kalimuendo is going to be available to face his old side after serving his suspension last weekend, and Bertug Yildirim is also back from suspension but is only expected to be on the bench.

Fabian Rieder and Enzo Le Fee are both still out with injuries and have no hope of returning here, but there were no new injury concerns after the Europa League exit at the hands of AC Milan in midweek.

Rennes predicted lineup vs PSG

Rennes predicted lineup vs PSG (4-3-3): Mandanda; Seidu, Omari, Theate, Truffert; Bourigeaud, Santamaria, Blas; Gouiri, Kalimuendo, Terrier.

Whilst by this point of last season there was intrigue around the Ligue 1 title, the same cannot be said for 2023/24. PSG are strolling to the title and find themselves in a really impressive patch of form.

Rennes are also in great form and have the ingredients to hurt PSG, but the fact they played in midweek against Milan means PSG have got the physical advantage, the home advantage, and the skill advantage. At another point in the season, it could have been a closer contest, but PSG should win comfortably here.
