Paris Saint Germain vs Rennes Predictions

Paris Saint Germain managed to allay some of the disappointment of their Champions League exit on Saturday as they beat Lille 2-1 to claim the Coupe de la Ligue for the 3rd successive season. This followed on from a Coupe de France semi final win over Lorient and a 6-0 hammering of Caen as they look to get over their continental disappointment.

Some thought that a lack of motivation in Ligue 1 could be an issue when Paris Saint Germain claimed the title with months to spare, and it seemed as if they had some foundation for concern as they won just once in a run of four matches back in February.

However, they seem to have climbed over than hump and come into this game having won three Ligue 1 matches on the trot, scoring 12 goals and conceding just once in the process. This leaves them with a huge 86 points as they look to break the season high points record of 89, set by themselves in the 2013/14 season. With four games remaining and just four points required, it seems inevitable that this record will be smashed.

Rennes are hoping for a more humble, but still impressive, end to the Ligue 1 season. They come into this match in 7th position in the table with 52 points, five points fewer than 4th placed Nice who occupy Ligue 1’s Europa League qualification position. However, with Paris Saint Germain already winning the Coupe de la Ligue and odds on to retain the Coupe de France the Europa League qualification section will expand to include 5th and 6th position. Rennes potentially only need to out perform Lille, who are level on points with them but have a game in hand.

The visitors aren’t in good form though. They haven’t won any of their last three matches in Ligue 1, including 3-0 defeats to Guingamp and Nice and a 1-1 draw with Monaco on Sunday.

I think Paris Saint Germain can get another win on Friday, and I expect it to be a fairly high scoring match too. 13 of PSG’s last 16 home matches in Ligue 1 have seen Over 2.5 goals scored, whilst six of Rennes last eight trips away have also had at least three goals scored. Odds of 4/5 for a Paris Saint Germain Win and Over 2.5 Goals look good value to me, and I’m going for a 3-1 correct score prediction at 9/1.
