Rennes vs PSG Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Rennes and PSG are expected to serve up an exciting encounter when they meet in the Coupe de France final at the Stade de France. Both teams are two of the most attacking sides in Ligue 1 and often serve up goals. I am predicting an outcome of over 3.5 goals at odds of 2.00 with the Parisians tipped win.

Rennes are coming off a 3-2 defeat away at Dijon in Ligue 1. They came from behind twice through Adrien Hunou and M'baye Niang before conceding the winner seven minutes from time.

The Red and Blacks booked a place in Saturday's final after claiming a 3-2 victory away at Lyon in the semis. Julien Stephane's team have failed to win in their last four matches and are priced at 13.00 to beat the champions while a draw is priced at 5.50.

Goals have not been a problem for Rennes lately with Niang netting six times in his last nine matches across all competitions. The Senegal striker leads the line for the team with support from Hatem Ben Arfa who has also impressed.

Paris Saint-Germain FC Form & Team News


PSG emerged French champions for the eighth time on Sunday after Kylian Mbappe's hat-trick gave them a 3-1 victory over Monaco. The Parisians reached the final of the Coupe de France following a 3-0 victory over Nantes in the last four. 

Mbappe has been excellent for PSG this season and heads into Saturday's clash with seven goals in his last eight matches, including one in the semi final win over Nantes. He could be joined in attack by regular partners Neymar and Edinson Cavani, both of whom made their return from injury in the victory over Monaco.

Thomas Tuchel's men are defending champions of the Coupe de France and are gunning for a second consecutive league and cup double. They have beaten Rennes twice already this season and are priced at a minimal 1.22 to win on Saturday. PSG have seen over 3.5 goals in their last 4 matches and a similar outcome is priced at 2.00.

Rennes vs PSG Head to Head 


PSG have 27 wins and 10 draws while Rennes have claimed 16 victories from 53 previous matches. Both teams have produced over 3.5 goals in three of their last four meetings.

The Parisians have won six of the last seven meetings and did the league double over Rennes this season. The most recent fixture ended 4-1 in favour of the champions.

Rennes vs PSG Match Up 


Rennes have a number of goal threats within their ranks, particularly with Ben Arfa and Niang, who has scored six times in his last nine matches. Their major problem has been the defence which has conceded 11 goals in the last five matches.

PSG are likely to have their exciting front three of Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani back together for the first time since January. Mbappe has seven goals in his last eight matches while Cavani netted a brace the last time he faced Rennes.
