After coming away with a crucial win over Lille OSC in Ligue 1 play, Paris Saint-Germain will now look to build on momentum in the upcoming league clash with Rennes.
As expected, PSG will not have the likes of Neymar (ankle) and Sergio Ramos (calf) due to their respective injuries. It remains to be seen whether either Neymar or Ramos will be cleared to feature in PSG’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg clash with Real Madrid.
In the big picture, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino may still roll out a star-studded starting 11 for the match, as noted by SofaScore.
Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Herrera, Pereira, Verratti; Di Maria, Messi, Mbappe
As the opening leg of PSG’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash against Real Madrid is just around the corner, Pochettino sure will have a notable dilemma on whether to rest his usual starters or opt to feature them as a key prep match.
In the big picture, Pochettino could very well still feature the likes of Marco Verratti and Lionel Messi against Rennes. They each have been chipping in for key goal contributions in all competitions as of late.
PSG aims for its 18th win of the league campaign.
