Kylian Mbappe scores injury time winner to see PSG edge Rennes


Paris Saint Germain welcomed Rennes to Parc des Princes on Friday and clinched all three points after a 1-0 win.

League leaders were looking to widen the gap and take control of the game against fifth-placed visitors but found themselves in a precarious position.

Aside from dominating and starring Lionel Messi and leading line-up Kylian Mbappe, PSG lacked their finishing skills and failed to register any shot aimed at most of the game.

The Frenchman came the closest to breaking the deadlock but saw an effort hit off the woodwork before eventually having the ball in the net in the second half only for it to be ruled offside.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side continued to increase pressure throughout the match as the likes of Mauro Icardi, Ángel Di María, and Gini Wijnaldum came off the bench.

And eventually, they found a way to crack Rennes as Messi teed up Mbappé deep into injury time to see the hosts keep hold of three points.
