Stade Rennes coach Frederic Antonetti has no fresh injury concerns as he attempts to reverse his side's alarming dip in form as it welcomes Paris Saint-Germain to Stade de la Route de Lorient.

Since the departure of Yann M'Vila at the end of January and the season-ending injury to key player Romain Alessandrini, the hosts have not won a league game, dropping from fourth place to a lowly 10th.

Mevlut Erding is set to reclaim his place in the starting XI, which will be largely unchanged from last week's 2-0 home loss to Nancy.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to rest a few players ahead of the Champions League quarterfinal second-leg against Barcelona next Wednesday.

The likes of Gregory van der Wiel, Mamadou Sakho, Clement Chantome and Kevin Gameiro could all be used as Les Parisiens aim for a first win at Rennes since 2002 ahead of their date with Tito Vilanova's side.

  • Stade Rennes sits 10th in Ligue 1, 11 points adrift of third-placed Olympique Lyonnais, after failing to win any of its last six league games.
  • Les Rouges et Noirs have not lost to Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 at home in 11 years.
  • Frederic Antonetti's men have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six encounters.
  • Paris Saint-Germain sits atop Ligue 1, seven points clear of Olympique de Marseille.
  • Rennes triumphed 2-1 in their fixture at the Parc des Princes back in November despite having two players sent off.
  • Carlo Ancelotti's side has scored the most goals and conceded the least out of any side in the top division.
