Sports Mole previews Paris Saint-Germain's clash with Rennes on Saturday.

Paris Saint-Germain will be keen to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 on Saturday when they host Rennes on Saturday.

Carlo Ancelotti's side have not won in their last two league games, losing to Saint-Etienne before drawing 1-1 with defending French champions Montpellier away from home without the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Parisian outfit, though, remain at the top of the league standings with 23 points from 12 matches ahead of Marseille, but only on goal difference.

Rennes are ninth in the table with 19 points from 12 matches, just four points behind PSG.

Frederic Antonetti's side are fighting for a European place and a victory in Paris will enhance their chances of achieving their target.

PSG striker Ibrahimovic is suspended and so are defender Mamadou Sakho and midfielder Marco Verratti.

Playmaker Javier Pastore is likely to return to the PSG lineup along with defender Alex.
