PSG have already dropped points at home to Marseille and St Etienne this term.
PSG v Rennes - Sunday 19:45, BT Sport Europe
PSG edged past Lille 1-0 last time out and also left it late to get past Basel in the Champions League, and they’re yet to really convince under Unai Emery. They’re currently 3rd in Ligue 1, six points behind Nice. Indeed, they’re just three points ahead of Rennes in 5th, who’ve now won three of four unbeaten games after they beat Metz 1-0.
PSG have dropped points at home to Marseille and St Etienne this term and their record when hosting teams between 3rd and 8th is W4-D2-L1 since the start of last season, suggesting they look on the short side at 1.29, particularly since they don’t look anywhere near the team that cruised to the title over the last four seasons.
Indeed, Rennes managed to win at Lyon last term and also drew at Monaco, whilst they were only beaten 1-0 at league leaders Nice this season. That, together with the fact that PSG have managed just five goals in their last five games means that we’re backing Rennes +1.5 on the Asian Handicap, which means that our bet’s a winner if Rennes lose by just a single goal, or of course if they manage a draw or a shock victory.
