Paris Saint-Germain wins in injury time against Rennes

PSG vs Rennes

Kylian Mbappe’s injury-time winner gave Paris Saint-Germain a 1-0 victory over Rennes.

PSG’s goal was to avoid injury and win three points because they face Real Madrid in a few days. Mbappe, Messi and Xavi Simmons led the way for Paris Saint-Germain in the first half.

In the 66th minute, Wjinaldum came on in place of Xavi Simmons. And Di Maria took the place of Draxler. PSG began to dominate ball possession as the half progressed, but they lacked intensity and there was no goal threat.

Messi and Mbappe gradually began to show their potential with some great touches and turns. However, PSG were unable to capitalise on their opportunities because Rennes’ defensive line was in top form and compact.

With time running out and Rennes content with a point, PSG countered and won with a classy finish from Mbappe. Mbappe saves PSG yet again with a late winner, giving him a total of 12 league goals this season.

Mbappe appears to be in good shape to face Real Madrid in the Champions League.
