PSG suffer their first defeat of the season at Rennes

Rennes (France): Paris Saint-Germain suffered their first defeat of the season after losing 2-0 at the Stade Rennes on Sunday, losing their first points in French Ligue 1. Rennes won thanks to two goals from their players, Gaitan Laborde and Flavian Tait, with one goal each half, to put an end to Saint-Germain’s victories in championship, lasting eight consecutive games. Despite the defeat, Saint-Germain, who lost to Lille in the super game before the start of the season, he maintained the lead with 24 points, six ahead of Lens, second in ranking, which last Friday beat Stade Reims 2-0. Rennes are seventh with 12 points. Five days after his impressive victory over Manchester City in Champions League, Saint-Germain started strong but was not effective and resolute, when Neymar fired a shot over the crossbar from close range in the 22nd minute.The crossbar received a free kick from Lionel Messi from 25 meters, despite both alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the visiting team struggled to find the net. Rennes, who had less than 72 hours to recover after beating Vitesse Arnhem in Europa League on Thursday, he advanced in the recovery of the first half. Labard scored his sixth goal of the season with a direct shot from a Kamal Eddin Suleimana cross. After he failed to direct a single shot in lead in the first half, Paris Saint-Germain suffered a disappointing start in the second half when Tate doubled the score early in the half following a cross pass from Laborde. A disappointed Neymar left the pitch to replace Mauro Icari in the 76th minute, but the Argentine striker was unable to improve his team’s performance, who also didn’t score a shot in door in the shot. Rennes reached the final stages of the match to inflict Paris Saint-Germain’s first defeat in eight months. (Reuters)
