PSG Thrash💥 Rennes in Neymar's Absence

Edinson Cavani bagged a brace as Paris Saint-Germain marched on without the injured Neymar to a 4-1 win over Rennes.

The Uruguay striker's early opener was cancelled out by M'Baye Niang, Rennes' former AC Milan forward lucky not to be sent off for crashing into Thilo Kehrer's left ankle.

Following a lacklustre opening 45 minutes, PSG powered clear as they have done in the title race, with the excellent Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe on target before the latter laid on Cavani's 20th of the season in all competitions.

PSG are 13 points clear of Lille at the top of Ligue 1, with two games in hand, while Rennes are 10th and winless in three top-flight games.
