Despite their strong play, PSG could not open a gap on the scoreboard, allowing Rennes to score two goals that effectively ended the game.
Laborde finished off a volley just before halftime, and Tait doubled the hosts' lead with a sweep in the second half.
Things turned out bad for PSG in its recent match; however, the previous one was a blast as Messi scored his very first goal for PSG.
The match was against Manchester City on Tuesday, September 29. He came close to scoring again, but his signature free-kick crashed off the bottom of the crossbar.
