Both teams that savored their opening day victory will face each other this weekend, as Rennes host Paris Saint-Germain for the second round of Ligue 1. Last term’s 10th placer Rennes and the reigning champion PSG are expected to serve up an exciting encounter as they enter the game with confidence and with the aim of bagging the win and defending supremacy. The reigning champions are almost always the top favorites, but the host will try to upset spectators and give their home audience something to cheer about. These teams are said to be the two of the most attacking sides in the league and often serve up goals, so we can expect that it’s going to be an intense collision.

Rennes accepted the challenger of holding the reigning heavyweight’s supremacy as they are also eyeing to land a place in European competitions. Last season, Rennes eliminated PSG via penalties and bagged their third title in French Cup. They started their new campaign by beating Montpellier in 1-0 finish. Rennes recorded 5 wins, 1 loss and 4 draws in their last 10 home matches. However, their pre-season is not that impressive as they recorded only 2 wins in their last 6 matches, drawing 1 and losing to 3, one of which was just a week ago against the same opponent in this match at the Trophée des Champions where they were defeated in 2-1 finish.
The defending champions kicked-off the new campaign with a 3-0 win over Nimes and it seems like they are totally unbothered and still performing well despite Neymar’s alleged departure in the club. The Parisians dominated most occasions especially this league as they aim to defend their second title and bag the third in a row. They showed an average performance during their last 6 matches with 3 win, drawing 1 and losing to 2, once of which is the penalty defeat against the same opponent in this match at the French Cup final.
In the last 10 years, these two teams met each 18 times with 14 wins for PSG and only 2 wins for Rennes, drawing 2. The very recent was just earlier this month ended in 2-1 victory for PSG.
