Messi started alongside Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Angel Di Maria for PSG's second match after missing the previous two Ligue1 games due to a knee injury.
Messi hit the crossbar with a free-kick in the first half at Roazhon Park before Gaetan Laborde volleyed Rennes ahead just before halftime with his league-leading sixth goal.
Flavien Tait doubled the lead less than 20 seconds after halftime, and Mbappe's goal was ruled out for offside as Rennes finished PSG's eight-match league winning streak this season.

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.
