Stade Rennais came close to giving Paris Saint-Germain their first defeat since November, but a late goal enabled the capital club to secure a 1-1 draw on Sunday at the Parc des Princes.

In the first half, Rennes only managed two shots on target, but that was sufficient for them to take the lead thanks to a goal from Amine Gouiri in the 33rd minute. As for PSG, they couldn't manage to score in the first 45 minutes, taking only five shots in total.


The Parisians searched the entire second half for the game-tying goal, taking ten shots on target in their quest to equalize. In the 86th minute, PSG was awarded a penalty kick, but the decision was overturned after a VAR review. 


After the referee overturned the call, PSG was again striving to score the equalizing goal. Then, after another VAR review, the Parisians received a penalty kick call in stoppage time for a chance to level the scoring. Gonçalo Ramos stepped into the box and scored, allowing Luis Enrique and his team to salvage a point.


Rennes will now turn their attention to the Coupe de France as they look to punch their ticket to the semifinals. Julien Stéphan and his team will travel to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard for their quarterfinal contest against Le Puy Football 43 Auvergne. 


PSG will aim for a bounce-back win against AS Monaco on Friday and then have to focus on the second leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Real Sociedad.
