PSG v Rennes Live Commentary & Result, 03/08/2019, Trophée des Champions

PSG (3-4-1-2): Alphonse Areola; Thilo Kehrer, Marquinhos (c), Abdou Diallo; Thomas Meunier, Ander Herrera, Marco Verratti, Juan Bernat; Pablo Sarabia; Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe.

Rennes are the side standing between PSG and a record seventh successive Trophee des Champions success. Julien Stephan’s charges prevailed 6-5 on penalties following a 2-2 draw after extra time when the sides met in April’s Coupe de France final showdown. That defeat for PSG sent shockwaves through French football, and Rennes will be hoping to inflict further misery on their opponents in this opening fixture of the 2019-20 campaign for both teams.

This curtain-raising fixture for the French domestic campaign sees Ligue 1 champions PSG take on the side that beat them in last season’s Coupe de France final, meaning that revenge will be on the cards for Thomas Tuchel’s men. The Parisians have won this competition six years running, most recently beating Monaco 4-0 at this ground almost 12 months ago to the day.
