Paris Saint-Germain hosts Rennes in round 24 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Friday, February 11th at Parc des Princes (Paris)
Mauricio Pochettino’s team leads the Ligue 1 standings with 56 points after 23 rounds. Paris Saint-Germain gained 17 victories and five draws and suffered only one defeat. The Parisians have no competitors in the national arena. Although they were eliminated from the French Cup by Nice (0-0 and 5-6 on penalties), they are successfully increasing their lead over their pursuers in the French championship. On February 6, Pochettino’s men destroyed Lille on a foreign pitch (1-5) and achieved the 2nd consecutive major victory in Ligue 1. Danilo Pereira scored a brace, and three other goals were scored by Presnel Kimpembe, Lionel Messi, and Kylian Mbappe.

Bruno Genesio’s team is in fifth place in the standings with 37 points. Rennes has 11 victories, four draws, and eight losses after 23 matches. The fans are unlikely to be happy with the team’s latest results. The Red and Blacks unexpectedly left the French Cup, losing to the outsider of the 2nd division, Nancy (1-1 and 3-4 on penalties). And in the national championship, they hammered Bordeaux (6-0) but suffered three defeats. On February 6, Genesio’s men dealt with their rival in the Breton derby, Brest (2-0). The hosts had a clear advantage and could smash the opponent but limited themselves to two accurate shots by Gaetan Laborde and Martin Terrier.
PSG and Rennes have already sorted out their relationship in the current championship. On October 3, the Red and Blacks hosted the Parisians in the match of the 9th round and beat them with a score of 2-0. That defeat remains the only one in the current Ligue 1 draw for the metropolitan team. Pochettino’s men will have to start their performance in the Champions League playoffs next week. On February 15, PSG will host Real Madrid in the 1st leg of the 1/8 finals. For the Parisians, success in the European Cup is a priority goal, so it is possible that the coaching staff will save some of the leaders before the match against the Spaniards. The upcoming game at Parc des Princes can end with goals from both teams. PSG scored at least two goals in 10 out of 11 home games, and Rennes has one of the most productive offensive lines in France (43 goals in 23 matches). The Red and Blacks have scored in 16 of the last 17 rounds in Ligue 1, so they are capable of scoring in Paris.
