Rennes will try to stop their crisis after elimination in the Champions League

Rennes will open the 12th day of French Ligue 1 on Friday in the territory of Strasbourg, penultimate classified, with the aim of curbing their crisis and flying back after being eliminated on Tuesday in the group stage of the Champions League.

A goal in the discount of Olivier Giroud for Chelsea (2-1), on Tuesday at the Roazhon Park stadium, put an end to the Bretons’ hopes for the Champions League and now they will have to focus their efforts above all on the national championship, where He began as one of the aspirants to question the Paris Saint-Germain throne, although in recent weeks he has had poor results.

Rennes has suffered four consecutive defeats, taking into account all the competitions, which has made it go from the podium in the French classification to seventh position.

In front of them will be a Strasbourg (19th) who is penultimate and should not stumble any more.

As for the leader, Paris Saint-Germain, matchday twelfth may put his leadership at risk.

After the 3-2 defeat of the previous day in Monaco, PSG closely felt the harassment of Lille (2nd), second two points behind the head and visiting Saint-Etienne (16th) on Sunday.

The Parisians face their Saturday game against Bordeaux (12th) at least with the feeling of relief that comes from their 1-0 victory on Tuesday against German RB Leipzig, which allows them to keep alive their chances of qualifying for the last 16 final.

PSG announced that the game will also serve as a tribute to Diego Maradona, who died on Wednesday in Argentina.

There will be a minute of silence and a video of the Argentine legend will be shown on the scoreboards, who stepped on the Parque de los Príncipes lawn three times as a player.

For their part, Lyon, third in Ligue 1, four points behind PSG, will try to win another victory against Reims (17th) on Sunday.
