Paris Saint-Germain v Rennes: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Paris Saint-Germain face Rennes on Wednesday in the second Coupe de France semi-final, with Les Parisiens looking to secure a spot in the final of the competition for the first time in three years.

The record 14-time winners reached the semi-finals after a comfortable 3-1 home victory over Nice in the last eight, with Kylian Mbappe getting on the scoresheet as he looks to add more silverware to a glistening trophy cabinet in what could be his last season at the club.

Julien Stephan’s Rennes avoided a potential cup upset via a 3-1 victory over Le Puy-en-Velay and they will be hoping to make life difficult for PSG, having drawn 1-1 at the Parc des Princes back in February.

However, Les Rennais have won just three times on the road in Ligue 1 and a trip to the French giants in cup competition could prove to be too tough a task.

PSG v Rennes betting tips and predictions

PSG to win and Both Teams to Score - 15/8

Les Parisiens are the clear favourites to lift the coveted trophy and, with home advantage on their side, they will be expected to ease past Rennes on Wednesday evening.

Luis Enrique’s men have been at their dominant best since losing 2-1 to AC Milan in the Champions League group stages in November, with the French outfit avoiding defeat in each of their subsequent 25 matches in all competitions - winning 18.

However, this run does include a 1-1 draw at home to their cup opponents in February and Rennes may feel that they can get on the scoresheet again, given that they have found the back of the net in 15 of their last 16 domestic league and cup matches.

Some joy in front of goal could be on the cards for Les Rennais but PSG have made the Parc des Princes a fortress once again this season, suffering just one defeat here in all competitions all season.

Benjamin Bourigeaud to score anytime - 11/2

Given that PSG are the overwhelming favourites to win and the likes of attacking stars Mbappe and Goncalo Ramos have relatively short odds in the goalscorer markets, a Rennes player may be the most lucrative option in the any time scorer market.

Maybe surprisingly, the top scorer for Rennes in Ligue 1 this season is 30-year-old midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud and he is 11/2 to find the back of the net in this encounter.

Bourigeaud has netted six goals - as well as three assists - across his last seven appearances for Julien Stephan’s side.

A brace in the last round at Le Puy-en-Velay and a hat-trick in a 3-2 home victory over AC Milan in the Europa League shows how effective the wide man has been in knockout football this season and, with seven goals in the league this season, Bourigeaud should be one of the focal points for Rennes.

Ludovic Blas to be booked - 9/2

While neither PSG nor Rennes have particularly poor disciplinary record this season, they have still picked up 92 yellow cards and seven reds between them and more cautions could be on the way.

In particular, Rennes midfielder Ludovic Blas looks a promising option to be cautioned in this cup clash.

The 26 year old has picked up five yellows so far this season (Ligue 1 and Europa League combined) and tops the charts for Rennes in terms of fouls committed (35), so could find himself in the crosshairs of the match officials in Paris.
