Rennes hosts PSG at the Roazhon Park in a match from the 8th round of the French Ligue 1. Keep up with us and our free football tips for that game.
Let’s start with the hosts. Rennes are 6th in the league with 11 points and a record of two wins and five draws. As you can see, Rennes are doing draws more often than they are winning. This is something the manager Bruno Genesio and his players will try to change, but against PSG it’s going to be difficult.
Last weekend Rennes finally won again after a run of consecutive draws. Les Rennais faced Nantes at home and enjoyed a 3-1 win at the Roazhon Park. Benjamin Bourigeaud and Arnaud Kalimuendo scored from penalties while Desire Doue also put the ball in the net.
The 22-years old Moroccan striker Ibrahim Salah is Rennes’ leading goalscorer since the beginning of the season – he has scored three times. This is a huge improvement for him as he didn’t score a single goal in the Ligue 1 during the 2022/23 campaign.
PSG approach this visit to Rennes from 5th place in the standings. The truth is Luis Enrique’s team didn’t have the best start of the season. So far the champions have won just three of their seven matches played.
Last weekend PSG made their third draw for the season. Enrique’s boys faced Clermont Foot away from home, but the match ended with no goals scored – 0-0.
Despite putting his stars on the pitch, Luis Enrique didn’t find the formula to win against Clermont Foot. PSG’s new attacking trio of Mbappe, Dembele and Kolo Muani still don’t work as expected. Especially in Dembele’s case, he’s heavily criticized for his lack of contribution in the terms of goals and assists.
What Luis Enrique must do now is make Ousmane Dembele feel comfortable on the pitch. The French winger arrived from Barcelona, but he’s still adapting to his new life in France. At certain moments he doesn’t look confident enough maybe because his adaptation is going slower than expected.
Kylian Mbappe on the other hand is doing more than well – seven games in six matches played for PSG in the Ligue 1. In the summer it was not completely clear if he’s going to remain at the club, but now the French international is doing very good. Mbappe is going to be the main threat for Rennes’ defense when these two teams meet.
Nuno Mendes, Presnel Kimpembe and Marco Asensio continue to recover from their injuries. Meanwhile Goncalo Ramos is trying his best to return in the line-up after Kolo Muani’s arrival.
That’s the free football tips for the Ligue 1 clash between Rennes and PSG at the Roazhon Park. The hosts are one of the best teams in the country, but they are rarely winning since the beginning of the season.
Now they have a serious task to challenge the reigning champion. Let’s see if PSG can finally show their true qualities here – it’s going to be an interesting game for sure
