Match Day 28 of the French Ligue 1 will have leaders PSG host Rennes in a match that will definitely have a bearing on the title race. PSG are top of the standings on 66 points, while Rennes have 47 points, in sixth. The Parisians have recovered from their loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and come into this game having beaten Brest 2-1 in their last league game. That was their fourth straight win in the league and also the fourth time they managed two or more goals in a league game. Kylian Mbappe scored a stoppage time winner in that game and the Frenchman has now scored six times in the last four matches in the league. Each of their last five matches has ended in over 2.5 goals, but PSG have managed a clean sheet in just one of their last five league games. PSG have a 10-point gap going into this game.
Rennes haven't been in their element in the recent matches. They are struggling in Ligue 1 and recently got eliminated from the Europa League. A poor run has seen them drop out of the top five and as things stand, they aren’t in any European football slots. Rennes are however just two points below fifth placed Lille. For a side seeking to qualify for Europe, one win only in the last four matches will not inspire a lot of confidence. Their last outing ended 0-0 with Auxerre and Rennes have now failed to score in their last two matches. They will however like it that PSG haven't been keeping many clean sheets either. Rennes haven't managed more than a goal in their last four matches, while four of their last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Rennes have one loss and two wins in the last four meetings with PSG but coming into this game they are not in the shape to trouble the league leaders. One win only in four matches says it all. Our prediction for PSG v Rennes is a win for PSG.
