This dynamic performance by Camavinga has surely fetched the eyes of several scouts, as he just bossed one of the biggest clubs in Europe, and was responsible for their defeat.
The performance by the 16-year-old midfielder made him win the man of the match award, and it could be seen that the French Champions had no idea about what was coming ahead.
On the other hand, PSG once again played without Neymar, who is reportedly injured but also speculated to join Barcelona this summer. However, the Paris based club was still expected to register a win over Rennes.
Edinson Cavani put them ahead after 36 minutes but goals either side of half time, from M’Baye Niang and Romain del Castillo, put Julien Stéphan’s side ahead before the 50-minute mark.
Rennes were dominated in possession by PSG, yet Rennes were able to register an unlikely victory against Thomas Tuchel’s side. However, The win though didn’t grab the headlines as much as the boy wonder Camavinga, who even gained an eight out of 10 from L’Equipe and made it into the papers Team of the Week.
