Paris SG – Rennes Free Betting Tips
Nine-time Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain put on a show with a 5-1 victory over defending champions Lille last weekend – surprisingly, it was only the second time in over two years who scores five or more goals in a league match. This result meant PSG’s third consecutive league victory – the last two by a four-goal difference – gaining momentum at the best possible time before their next Champions League clash with Real Madrid after this clash against Rennes.
Still undefeated at the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1 this campaign (W10, D1), PSG are poised to extend their 13-point lead at the top, thanks not only to their attack, but also to their defense — they have kept his clean sheet in four consecutive league games at this venue. Now he is looking for revenge after losing 2-0 in his first match of the season against his current rival, but he will do so with the security of knowing that he has not lost both league games in the same season against Rennes since the 2008 campaign/ 09.
For the visiting Stade Rennais, optimism has steadily deteriorated in recent days after registering five defeats in their previous eight league games (W3) — the same as in their previous 19 league games. In particular, Rennes will be desperate to avoid conceding the first goal, having lost all six of their league games this season in which they conceded the opening goal of the game.
Avoiding that fate again could help reduce their five-point gap to the top three in the standings and catapult Rennais back into contention for a Champions League place. While the odds are against them, recent history might not be – Rennais has been involved in three of PSG’s 13 home defeats during the club’s Qatari era, more than any other Ligue 1 side.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE – Odds: 1.75
