PSG Rally Back To Maintain 100% Record

Ligue 1 

Result: Rennes 1-3 Paris Saint-Germain

Date: 23 September 2018

Venue: Roazhon Park

Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to record a 3-1 win over Rennes to maintain their 100% record in Ligue 1 this season.

The hosts took a surprising lead after 11 minutes as Clement Grenier's corner deflected off Adrien Rabiot and sailed into the back of the net.

PSG thought they grabbed the equaliser when Cavani put the ball in the back of the net on 26 minutes, but the offside flagged was raised.

The visitors continued to push for an eqauliser as the half went on, but Rennes nearly bagged a second against the run of play but Gianluigi Buffon was on hand to make the save in the 39th minute.

Parity was eventually restored on the stroke of halftime as Julian Draxler's cross found it's way to Angel di Maria, who drilled the ball into the bottom corner.

The visitors came out firing in the second half as Cavani rattled the woodwork, while Neymar had an effort cleared off the line in the opening 10 minutes.

PSG then went ahead in the 61st minutes as Neymar turned provider to pick out to play in Thomas Meunier, who slotted into the bottom corner from close range.

It was 3-1 on 83 minutes, as Eric Choupo-Moting scored three minutes after his introduction with a smashing finish on his Ligue 1 debut for PSG.

That proved to be the final piece of action in the half as PSG maintain their winning start to the league season.
