Ligue 1 2022-23
Rennes are fourth in the Ligue 1 standings after 34 points from 18 games played. The team won 10 times in 18 matches, while drawing 4 times.
A few days ago, Rennes suffered an away defeat from Clermont with a score (1-2), having conceded the second goal a couple of minutes before the final whistle. Prior to this, the club defeated Bordeaux with a score (2-1).
As you know, Rennes have not lost a single point in their eight previous Ligue 1 matches at home, which is a successful result for the club this season.
PSG, meanwhile, continues to top the Ligue 1 table with 47 points from 18 rounds. The nearest pursuer, Lance, is six points ahead of the club.
In the middle of the week, PSG won a home victory over Angers with a score (2-0). One of the heroes was Lionel Messi, who scored the second goal against the opponent.
But the beginning of January was not the most successful for PSG. On the first day of 2023, the team led by Christophe Galtier lost to Lens (1-3).

Head to Head
PSG have had a good run against Rennes lately and the club have won 15 of the last 26 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Rennes’ eight wins.
The last meeting of the two teams took place in February last year as part of the French championship, and ended with the victory of PSG with a score (1-0).
On the one hand, there is a clear favorite, but it should be noted that PSG have never won in the previous three matches on the Rennes field (two defeats and a draw).
Rennes can strike on their day and have caused trouble for PSG on several occasions in the past, but the away side is the favourite.
Prediction for this match: PSG win + over 2.5 goals.
