Team News: Rennes
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Rennes manager Bruno Génésio to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Jonas Martin (Surgery) misses out.
Team News: PSG
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has to choose a team with limited availability. Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Alexandre Letellier (Fractured Finger) are not ready for selection.
We’re inclined to think that Rennes will surely be able to score a goal against this PSG lineup, however a single goal possibly won’t quite be enough.
Therefore, we’re predicting a 1-2 winning margin for PSG by the conclusion of the game. It should be a decent one.
