Rennes won (3-0) this Saturday in Angers and provisionally takes two points ahead of OM, a length of Lens, fifth in Ligue 1. What to believe in Europe.
Angers is still struggling in his Raymond-Kopa stadium, where he has not won in Ligue 1 since the end of January and a large success (3-1) against Nîmes. Yet twice beaten by the SCO this season, in the Championship and in the Cup, Stade Rennais won there this Saturday (3-0) during the 33rd day of Ligue 1. And achieved a good operation in the standings.
The Breton club is temporarily back up to RC Lens, just one point behind fifth place occupied by the Sang et Or. And puts pressure on OM, two points, which receives Lorient (5pm). Bruno Genesio’s players also had the good idea to score three times while preserving their clean sheet, just to heal the goal difference (+8).
Dominating for a long time without convincing with the ball in the first period, ultimately obtaining very few clear chances, Stade Rennais ended up opening the scoring in additional time of the first act (45th + 1), thanks to the second goal of the Belgian Jérémy Doku in Ligue 1. Cruel for the SCO who had gained confidence and believed to score a few moments earlier.
Goal unfairly denied to Bahoken?
Gomis had a hole in the fall of a ball, allowing Bahoken, who was next, to score unopposed, but the referee held a not obvious fault on the Rennes goalkeeper. In the control of the game and the intentions, Stade Rennais had the ascendancy. And although he shot less than his opponent, the Breton club was sharper. Three shots on target, three goals. Maximum efficiency.
Terrier closed a very good Rennes action on the hour mark (63rd), before leaving it to his replacement to fold the case. Served at the end of the match (90th + 1) after a good overflow from Dalbert in the left lane, Guirassy played his direct opponent on the oriented control before hooking Traoré to beat the goalkeeper with a crossed strike from the left. And score his 8th goal, the fourth in the last four matches. The French striker, like his club, undefeated for a month (4 wins and 1 draw), continues his momentum.
