Rennes v PSG, Ligue Un, Sunday 7.45pm.
TV: BT Sport 3

At the time of writing PSG are six points above Lens at the pinnacle of Ligue Un. However, Lens are due to play relegation-threatened Auxerre on Saturday evening and will surely have closed the gap to just three points by the time this fixture comes around. They face a Rennes side who have won nine of their last 10 home league games so the pressure is really on Messi & Co. to deliver here. Let’s get into the stats and find the four best value bets for a mega Bet Builder.

Both Teams to Score

Rennes have only been kept scoreless in one of their 18 league games this season, an opening day surprise 0-1 loss at home to Lorient. Their home form is simply immense with nine wins from 10 in the league at home and they scored at least two goals in nine of those 10 games. 

Roazhon Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for PSG over recent seasons, winning just one of their last five visits there in all competitions but they’re averaging 2.78 goals per away game this season and we should, at the very least, see both sides scoring here.

Lionel Messi Anytime Assist

Lionel Messi is very much back to enjoying his football this season, now armed with a World Cup medal to add to his collection he contributed a goal in his first game back for the Parisians on Wednesday last.

In the league this season he has scored eight goals so far and has assisted 10 and with him relishing his role as the pivot of the three-pronged attack alongside Neymar and the returning Kylian Mbappe we can certainly see him setting up one for his colleagues here.

Over 5.5 PSG Corners

Both sides have pretty similar stats regarding shots, the hosts are averaging 14.2 shots per game with 4.3 being on target, for PSG the stats read as 15.2 and 7.3 being on target. The big difference is obviously the visiting side are far more clinical in front of goal, their away goals average of 2.78 is testament to that.

The Parisians are averaging 6.56 corners per away league clash and with the pressure on them to deliver here they’ll be eager to put more distance between themselves and Lens who are hot on their heels. The visitors will have the majority of attacks which should result in both goals and corners so we’re getting a very good price here for them to have six corners or more.

Rennes to Receive the Most Cards

Rennes aren’t a dirty side, they’ve actually received less cards than PSG this season with 30 v 33, however, they’ve picked up six red cards to PSG’s two. The vast amount of teams that come up against PSG tend to give away the majority of fouls because they simply have to stop the attacks. 

Messi returned midweek against Angers, Kylian Mbappe will return here and it’s hard not to see the Rennes backline committing a few tactical fouls resulting in cards here.
