PSG vs Rennes Final – LIVE Football Reddit Score 11 Feb 2022

PSG is on course to bag the Ligue 1 crown this season. The hosts are currently top of the table with 56 points after 23 games, which translates to 2.43 points per match. With such an incredible run of form, Rennes will have to sweat to replicate their 2-0 victory in the reverse encounter. In a nutshell, this is the time that PSG should get their revenge, especially on the back of 5-1 victory against reigning Champions, Lille, last weekend. After getting dumped out of Coupe de France by Nice, the Parisians will now focus on Ligue 1 and UCL.

On the flip-side, Rennes is aiming for top five. The visitors are currently fifth on Ligue 1 table and hope they can inflict another damage on injury-riddled PSG. However, inconsistencies should worry the visitors in this trip to Parc de Princes. Rennes could get annihilated in a fixture that is likely to be a revenge mission for the Parisians. Find out which players are missing and who will likely make it to the starting eleven below.

Paris Saint-Germaine will host Stade Rennais in the Round 24 of French Ligue 1 fixtures. The Parisians continue their title chase at home in this 24th game of the season against Rennes, a team that has done exceptionally well since the new season kicked off. Will Rennes get a result in this game? Read on for details. Rennes kicked off the 2021/22 Ligue 1 season on a good note. The visitors bagged a 2-0 victory in the reverse game and despite a few challenges in recent games; they will look to defend their clean sheet victory in this trip to Paris. Here are our best two predictions for this game.

We expect goals on both ends in this Ligue 1 match between PSG and Rennes. The visitors only failed to score against PSG in only one of the last eight meetings. Also note that PSG has been struggling to keep a clean sheet this season whether they are playing at home or away. We think this fixture will have goals on both ends of the pitch.

Our second prediction for PSG vs Rennes is a high scoring game. PSG at home should hand the hosts a lot of confidence in this game. And with that, we expect the hosts to score at least twice, perhaps to avenge the 2-0 loss in the reverse match. Both sides are in top form, so backing goals on both ends is a good pick for this Ligue 1 game.

PSG: For the hosts, it is all about getting ready for next week’s clash with Real. The thumping win away at Lille OSC last week was unexpected and a similar display will build up some real momentum heading into that meeting with the Spanish giants. Since their Coupe de France exit and given their Ligue 1 lead, the Champions League is more important than ever for Les Parisiens.

Rennes: Still alive in Europe, Genesio’s men are looking to secure UEFA Europa League qualification and they are on course to do so at present. The UCL might be too far away with six points between themselves and Marseille, but OM have started to stutter of late which perhaps presents an opportunity to push.

The French giants are heading into this clash on the back of a morale-boosting 5-1 victory over defending champions LOSC Lille. The win helped them maintain their healthy 13-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 standings, as the hopes for a late title challenge from Marseille or OGC Nice continue to wane. On Friday, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be eyeing retribution against a Rennes side that handed them the season’s first defeat back in early October. The club from Brittany secured a comfortable 2-0 victory on that occasion, courtesy of goals from Gaetan Laborde and Flavien Tait.

Rennes have since done well under the leadership of Bruno Genesio. With 37 points collected in 23 matches, they are in contention of a potential top-three finish, although the visitors must improve from their recent record of just two wins in the last six league matches. On a bright note, both the victories have come in the last two matches, with Les Rouge et Noir securing a comfortable 2-0 victory in their most recent affair against Brest. It could be a tall order for them to replicate that scoreline against PSG, but having beaten Les Parisiens in the reverse fixture, the visitors will be more than confident of causing yet another upset this Friday.

Angel Di Maria has joined Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum, Neymar and Mauro Icardi in PSG’s list of absentees after picking up a fresh knock in the win over Lille. The Argentine’s absence leaves Julian Draxler with a golden opportunity to make an impression. His dribbling and technical prowess could be useful alongside Lionel Messi, with the two expected to operate as the wide attackers, providing supply for Kylian Mbappe in the number nine position. Xavi Simons is a potential alternative for Draxler, in case Pochettino favours a bit of youthful exuberance in the final third.

Moving into midfield, Marco Verratti has been the beating heart of PSG’s second line of press. The Italian’s ability to carry the ball forward and offer useful forward passes plays a key role in the transition. Alongside him, the hosts are likely to deploy Danilo and Leandro Paredes, who might be rewarded for his performance against Lille, with a start ahead of Ander Herrera.

Things get a bit more interesting in the defensive unit. With Ramos injured, the onus will once again be on Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe to form a solid central defensive pairing. They are set to be aided by the full-back duo of Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes, although the two are going to play a more crucial role in the attacking side of things.

Indeed, their marauding runs forward, and the ability to provide width in the attack could go a long way in helping PSG stretch out the opposition backline. However, they will need to be wary of Rennes’ quality wingers, especially in counter-attacking situations.

Indeed, the Rennes attack should be spearheaded by the highly influential Gaetan Laborde, with additional support from Martin Terrier, who has emerged as the club’s top scorer with 11 league goals. The two should form the strike force in Rennes’ 4-4-2 that will look to minimise the spaces available in between the lines.

Having runners like Laborde and Terrier, to that end, could be useful for a Rennes side expected to play on the counter. However, it will be equally important that the chance-creators such as Kamaldeen Sulemana and Benjamin Bourigeaud provide the goods when it comes to balls in behind the backline.

As for the defensive side of things, Jonas Martin and Baptiste Santamaria remain favourites to form the double-pivot. They are set to play a vital role in breaking up PSG’s build-up and make life difficult for the likes of Marcos Verratti and Danilo Pereira in the middle of the park.

Their performance could go a long way in protecting the back-four comprising Hamari Traore, Nayef Aguerd, Warmed Omari, and Birger Meling. The Rennes defence remains likely to operate in a low block, to deny Mbappe the space to run in behind the backline while making life even more difficult for Messi.
