Paris Saint-Germain suffered in their match against Rennais in the French Ligue 1, days before they face Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Kylian Mbappe gave his Paris Saint-Germain side a late 1-0 win over Rennais on Friday in the 24th leg of the French Ligue 1. Mbappe scored the only goal of the confrontation in the third minute of overtime (90+3).

Rennais were the only team to beat Paris Saint-Germain this season in the league 2-0 on the third of October.
