Top meets fourth in Ligue 1 this Sunday evening as Paris Saint-Germain head back on the road to meet with Rennes with the league leaders now creating a healthy six-point gap on second-placed Lens just one week after losing to them.
The loss to Lens seemingly blown the title race in France’s top flight wide open, but in defeating Angers 2-0 in the last game, PSG are back on track. Lionel Messi scored in his first game back after the World Cup that day, as the Argentine World Cup winner put on another clinic this season.
Youngster, Hugo Ekitike, scored for the third game running as well that day, but he could now move out for Kylian Mbappe who is set to return to form the deadly front three of him, Messi and Neymar.
As for Rennes, they have won two and lost two since action resumed in France. They started off with a 3-1 loss to Reims, before beating Nice 2-1 and then edging past Ligue 2′s Bordeaux in the French Cup round of 64.
A 2-1 loss to Clermont Foot came in midweek, but it still keeps Bruno Génésio’s men in fourth in Ligue 1.
