Rennes meet PSG on Sunday in this round 28 of Ligue 1 season. Both still have a lot at stake from their different positions in the table, as the former aims for Europe next season.

PSG approach the next Ligue 1 round as number one in the table, having claimed 66 points this season so far. With 27 games behind them, Rennes amassed 47 points, placing them as number 5 before their next fixture.

Rennes face a tough prospect, when travelling to in-form PSG this coming Sunday, with the home side racking up four wins in a row.

PSG are confident they will be scoring goals in their next assignment in the Ligue 1, as they show off very admirable numbers from their past ten matches. The hosts scored 2.2 goals on average per match, or 22 goals in total, while allowing 13 goals against, for an average of 1.3 per outing. They managed two clean sheets along the way.

Rennes managed a bearable 11 goals from their past ten games, creating an average of 1.1 goals per game. They conceded 11 goals in total, and while claiming five clean sheets, they conceded 1.1 goals an average per game.

The last time these two sides facing off here came up against each other, Rennes came away with a 1-0 win. Rest assured they have a similar outcome in mind at Parc des Princes.

PSG vs Rennes Prediction

PSG Form

PSG have been a little inconsistent recently, as they beat Nantes by 4-2. Following that up proved too difficult, as they lost 2-0 against Bayern Munich, before claiming three points in a 1-2 win against Brest. PSG have been in potent form at Parc des Princes, winning no less than five of the past six Ligue 1 matches here. They remained without defeat, as they drew once, hammered in 15 goals while letting in eight.

Rennes Form

In their previous three matches, Rennes beat Nantes 0-1, lost 0-1 against Marseille and drew 0-0 with Auxerre. Rennes managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Ligue 1. On top of winning once they also drew one as well as losing four, while scoring ten time and letting in five.

A home win for PSG is the obvious choice at Parc des Princes. With the attacking qualities on display here, it has the makings of a high scoring affair when Rennes come visiting.

PSG have taken 24 points from their last 13 games against teams from the top half of the Ligue 1 table. They won seven of these matches with a scoreline of 24 goals to 15. In the last seven games against teams in the top six, Rennes claimed one wins and six points. They scored six and conceded nine goals. PSG are looking at a record of 21 wins, three draws and three defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Rennes are looking at 14 wins, five draws and eight defeats in the Ligue 1.
