PSG: This club enters fresh off ending a little rough patch of form. PSG had drawn Strasbourg, lost 5-1 to Lille and lost 3-2 to Nantes, but the club bounced back last week with a 3-1 win over Monaco to clinch the league. This team should have enough to get a victory here but recent form shows they can be the victim of an upset.
Rennes: This is a team that has 15 draws, numerous that have been 0-0. If you can’t score, you are not going to beat PSG. This team has averaged just under a goal per game in Ligue 1 action, but that hasn’t carried over to the cup with this final run. But with PSG a lock to score in pretty much every game, they must take advantage of their chances in the final third.
Neymar sees the field, gets a goal and Kylian Mbappe grabs two more in an easy victory.
Pick: PSG (-550)
