Rennes again offers PSG. This Sunday evening, the Rennais, already winners in the first leg (1-0), won on the lawn of the capital club (0-2), during the 28th day of Ligue 1. At the Parc des Princes, Karl Toko Ekambi (45th) and Arnaud Kalimuendo (48th) scored. In the standings of the French championship, Paris Saint-Germain maintain a nine-point lead over runner-up Lens, while the Bretons are back in fifth place.
Messi was entitled to a few whistles from the park

He didn’t want to celebrate. And not for nothing is Arnaud Kalimuendo a former member of the House. However, this did not stop the former titi from torturing his old training. Just after returning from the dressing room, the striker found himself at the end of a very good cross from Lesley Ugochukwu to deceive Gianluigi Donnarumma (48th, 0-2). The Italian goalkeeper had already made a bow just before half-time. Karl Toko Ekambi had beaten him with a cross (45th, 0-1).
PSG had many absentees in defence
Each time the Parisian rearguard was overtaken by speed. On the opener, the Cameroonian was found deep behind the veteran Danilo Pereira. Before the half-time goal, it all started with Marco Verratti losing the ball in midfield.
In this meeting, Christophe Galtier had to innovate, in particular replacing Juan Bernat in the axis, in a defense with three, lacking many elements (Hakimi, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Mukiele, Ramos). Although the Paris technician used several systems during the match, none prevented Rennes from being dangerous until the end. Like Djed Spence in particular, close to 3-0 (73rd).
Mandanda played a very big game
Behind that, the Rennais could count on a huge Steve Mandanda. The French goalkeeper is certainly the man of the match, who made no less than seven decisive interventions. Kylian Mbappé, looking for a 20th goal to become the top goalscorer in the Premier League this season, is certainly the one who was most disgusted. The striker has framed three times (26th, 40th, 54th). However, without becoming the savior of his family this time, on one of his individual exploits of which he has the secret. At his side, Lionel Messi (33rd, 72nd) or Timothée Pembélé (34th) were no longer successful. Even Marco Verratti couldn’t surprise Mandanda (84th).
This season, PSG lost four Ligue 1 matches, including two against Rennes. The Bretons return to success, after a defeat and a draw. And they therefore make Parisians in particular doubt. Those who hadn’t lost an elite match in their lair for over two years.
