Check out our prediction about this match here below to know more about the possible outcome of the game.
Of course, Paris Saint Germain very strongly motivated before the new season, however, their main goals should be the Champions League. Even without Neymar almost during the half of the season, they win the Ligue 1 without any problems and strugglings. In 38 matches they lost only 5 times. PSG won the first French league 6 times in 7 seasons, only once stayed behind Monaco in the table in 2016/17 season. The Parisians worked a lot during the summer transfer window. They brought several very interesting players to the squad and look like this is not enough for them.
They took 3 players for free – Marcin Bulka, Ander Herrera should be the best signing of the window and Mitchel Bakker. Moreover, Pablo Sarabia joined the squad from Sevilla for 18M. They decided to strengthen the middle of the pitch and defensive area by signing Abdou Diallo from Borussia Dortmund and Idrissa Gueye from Everton for the same 32 million amounts. They also released and sold several players who were not particularly successful in the team. PSG sold Giovani Lo Celso to Real Betis, Moussa Diaby to Bayer Leverkusen, Christopher Nkunku to RB Leipzig, Grzegorz Krychowiak to Lokomotiv Moscow and Timothy Weah to LOSC Lille. Moreover, Gianluigi Buffon, Adrien Rabiot and Dani Alves left the club for free.
PSG failed in Champions League last season losing to Manchester United at Parc des Princes being strong favorites. Now the team must change their attitude to football and start playing how they can. Good and talented players, super coaches and motivation from the owners make possible to achieve the highest success in the career of football players. We hope to see confident football from the team, despite the questionable results of friendly matches during the offseason. There is a questionable situation with Neymar, however, even without him, PSG is strong favorites before the match.
Last year, Stade Rennes scored less than almost half the points in the regular season compared to PSG, however, they won the Final of Coupe de France against them. Throughout the season, Renne played relatively well, as the average team without outstanding victories. The team had big problems in defense, as they conceded almost in every game, especially when playing away. Unfortunately, Hatem Ben Arfa was released by the club. He was a real team leader and made sometimes impossible and unbelievable moves to get the important win.
It looks like they are not prepared to make big moves into the club. However, M’Baye Niang and Flavien Tait joined the club from Torino and Angers. They don’t have the same possibilities to change half of the squad wherever they want, like Parisians. This season, all is reliable for the players of the main team, who already know each other well. As well, Julien Stephan should be the key to a great team play and strong results.
