After opening up their Ligue 1 campaign with eight successive wins, Paris Saint-Germain were stunned by Rennes at Roazhon Park on Sunday.
Paris Saint-Germain’s winning start to the Ligue 1 campaign came to an end with a shock 2-0 loss to Rennes on Sunday.
Lionel Messi struck the crossbar with a free-kick, Kylian Mbappe saw a goal disallowed by VAR for offside and Neymar skied a brilliant chance right in front of goal on an afternoon to forget.
PSG actually failed to register a single shot on target and Rennes took full advantage with Nuno Mendes putting a Kamal Sulemana cross into his own net before Flavien Tait made it two.
Neymar sliced a volley over from six yards when unmarked and Mbappe scuffed a shot off target with only Alfred Gomis to beat less than two minutes later.
Messi then hit the crossbar from a free-kick and those near misses proved costly when Kamaldeen Sulemana’s cross was turned in by Laborde, though Nuno Mendes may have got the final touch.
The home side’s second arrived just 18 seconds after half-time as Laborde pulled the ball back for Tait to tuck past Donnarumma when left in plenty of space.
