What you need to know ahead of Rennes vs PSG and Ligue 1 MD 9 games

September 30, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
PSG will look to extend their lead over the chasing pack as they host Rennes, while teams like Lens will aim to continue their impressive start to the season.

With PSG cantering along and enjoying a nine point lead over the chasing pack, things are starting to heat up in places two through five in the Ligue 1 table. There's a surprise team in the mix - Lens - who are jostling for a Champions League berth, while reigning champs Lille are still struggling to find their way.

Here's all you need to know ahead of matchday nine.

Ligue 1 games you won't want to miss on matchday nine

Lens vs Reims: With just one loss in their last eight games, Lens have managed to slowly climb up the table, and now sit in second place. It's an impressive start so far for Franck Haise's side, who finished in seventh last season, but it remains to be seen if they can keep up this all term. Their upcoming visitors Reims sit in 11th spot, have won twice all season, and have never beaten Lens in four prior encounters (W1 D3).

Nice vs Brest: Nice are among a crop of sides who are jostling for second place at the moment, and Les Aiglons will look to take advantage of their opponents, who have picked up just four points and are winless so far this term.

Rennes vs PSG: League leaders PSG have a perfect start to the term, and Les Parisiens presently enjoy a nine point lead over the chasing pack. After finally opening his account for his new club, all eyes will be on whether Lionel Messi can do likewise in Ligue 1.

Lille vs Marseille: Last season saw Lille win the Ligue 1 title for the first time in a decade. Les Dogues, however, haven't had the same impact this time around, especially with the departure of Christophe Galtier promptly after their title triumph. Will they be able to recover as they take on a Marseille side who will also be keen on getting back on track after picking up just one point from their last two games?
