THE BIGGER PICTURE: Karl Toko Ekambi opened the scoring for Rennes on the stroke of half-time, with former PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo-Muinga doubling the visitors’ lead three minutes after the break, and they managed to hold on for a famous 2-0 victory.
WHAT NEXT? There had been suggestions before the game that Messi would be jeered by disgruntled ultras in Paris. While that was not the case before kick-off, it did not take long for the Argentine superstar and those around him to incur the wrath of demanding supporters that expect big things from a star-studded side.
