Rennes - PSG

Early call! Ntep just left Rennes and I expect odds to drop.

PICK: PSG AH -1,00 @1,99 PINNACLE 3/10

Match between 7th and 3rd placed team of French Ligue 1, will be played on 14th of January on Rhoazon Park in Rennes.

Rennes didn't win for 3 matches in row and today it's official that they just stayed without one of their best players - Ntep, who left to Wolfsburg. He played as left winger, and anyone who watched any of last matches was able to see, that left he was key figure in attack of Rennes. He was the one, able to make problems to every defence, and now coach Gourcuff will need to find substitution for him. In my opinion, it will be impossible. That probably means that Grosicki will start playing in first eleven, or Hanou will play on this spot, but in this way they are loosing good players, able to change rhythm of the game and in overall, Rennes won't be as strong as they were. Good question is also what are their goals. In my opinion Ntep is worth much more then 5M €.

PSG sign Draxler who already scored beautiful goal in cup. Even without him I think that this team simply has too much of quality and I believe that things will be better in second half of season. With 39 points, they are 5 points behind 1st placed Nice and 3 points behind 2nd placed Monaco, and after 2 defeats on road in row, there is time for win.

PSG is one of the strongest teams in counter-attacks, and Rennes is among teams who are defending them very poorly. I expect them to be in control of the match, creating enough chances to beat them. In first match this year, Rennes started fine, but only for first 10 minutes, after that PSG was all over the pitch and they won 4-0 easily. Rennes is tough opponent at home, but many times, specially in start without Ntep they had problems with creating chances. If they won't score against PSG, I think that they have no chance to take something out of this match. As already mentioned, I am expecting much better PSG in second half of season. With Draxler they have another quality player who can change things on the pitch. In my opinion they still need a good goalscorer, because Cavani is missing too many chances, but anyway they need to take 3 points from Rhoazon and I think that they will.

FT: 0-1 void
