Rennes – Paris SG Preview

  • A top-five finish remains a realistic aim for Rennes, despite a 1-0 setback last time out which ended their six-game unbeaten Ligue 1 (L1) run (W5, D1). That defeat was the third game in five in which the opposition scored first, and that’s something which has now happened in 19 of their L1 encounters (54.29%). However, they have impressively avoided defeat in nine of those matches (W5, D4, L10).
  • The hosts are chasing a fourth straight home league victory for the first time since December 2019. Yet despite that form, goals have been hard to come by. Prior to Rennes’ last fixture at Roazhon Park, they’d netted under 1.5 goals in six straight matches (W2, D1, L3). The floodgates opened in their 5-1 win vs Dijon though, and four second-half goals in that one has contributed to 60.87% of their home L1 goals this season arriving after HT.
  • Paris Saint-Germain have to pick themselves up from midweek Champions League semi-final heartache and build upon their four-game L1 winning run as they try and chase a joint-record tenth top-flight title. A lingering problem for them has been a fragile defence that hasn’t kept a clean sheet in ten of their previous 11 competitive matches. Seven of those came in their last seven L1 games, representing their joint-longest league run without a shutout since April 2012.
  • They counter this problem with a scintillating attack, especially on the road where they’ve won six straight L1 matches, impressively scoring 2+ goals in five. Furthermore, each of those away wins saw at least one goal scored before the 21st minute!
  • Players to watch: Rennes’ Martin Terrier has scored five goals in six L1 matches – three of which came after HT. PSG’s lightning fast starter Kylian Mbappé (PSG) has scored eight goals in six L1 away matches, with four of those arriving in the opening 20 minutes.
  • Hot stat: PSG have won both halves in a league-high 12 matches.
