Paris Saint-Germain visit Stade Rennais on Sunday before heading off for the international break, and Mauricio Pochettino’s men come into this one off the back of an impressive 2-0 win over Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League at Parc des Princes. Lionel Messi is finally on the scoresheet in Paris, and facing Rennes away is arguably one of the toughest domestic tests so far for PSG, who still have a 100% winning record this Ligue 1 season.
PSG: The pressure is off somewhat now that Pochettino and his players have delivered a performance and result to match against City. That does not mean that they can take Rennes lightly, though, with the home side exactly the sort of team which could hurt Les Parisiens if they are complacent.
The men from the capital to win this one with relative ease in the end. Although Rennes might score, PSG just have too much firepower to see past them winning this. Pick: Rennes 1, PSG 3
The Parisiens have won every game this season in the league and are heavy favorites for Sunday’s Ligue 1 encounter.
Rennes: The Breton side are slowly improving but remain mired in mid-table heading into this one and they have lost just one of their last five. However, better was expected of Les Rouge et Noir this campaign and Genesio will need to lift them higher in the table between now and Christmas.
