On Sunday, Rennes and PSG were held to a 1-1 draw at the Roazhon Park. Rennes were looking forward to meeting again after losing their last game 1-0 to Bordeaux. PSG were hoping to increase their winning streak after back-to-back victories against RC Lens and FC Metz. After today’s result, Rennes are currently 7th with 55 points from 36 matches, while PSG sit in 2nd, with 76 points from 36.

PSG started strongly in the first half, thanks to a goal from Neymar just before half-time, to take a 0-1 lead into half time.

The Rennais took the initiative in the second half, with Sehrou Guirassy finding the net, 70 minutes in, leaving the final score at 1-1.

For Rennes, Clement Grenier, Dalbert, Andy Diouf, Romain Del Castillo and Brandon Soppy, came on for Lesley Ugochukwu, Faitout Maouassa, Martin Terrier, Sehrou Guirassy and Hamari Traore. PSG brought on Abdou Diallo, Rafinha, Idrissa Gueye, Alessandro Florenzi and Mauro Icardi, to replace Layvin Kurzawa, Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Colin Dagba and Julian Draxler.

The referee booked Nayef Aguerd, Andy Diouf, Romain Del Castillo and Flavien Tait from Rennes. PSG had the worst of it though, with Ander Herrera seeing yellow, and Presnel Kimpembe then sent off with a red.

Rennes will next play AS Mónaco away, with PSG facing Reims at home.
