Football – Ligue 1: A new demonstration and Rennes finds the podium

This weekend, Stade Rennais will only be out of the Ligue 1 2021-2022 podium for a few hours. At home against Lorient on the 34th day, Bruno Génésio’s men won the Breton derby thanks to a magnificent manita (5-0) and came back ahead of AS Monaco to relocate to third place in the championship. of France. Reduced to ten during the second period after the expulsion of Nayef Aguerd, the Rennais never dropped their pace in the game and scored twice in numerical inferiority against Merlus overwhelmed by the opposing technical and tactical mastery. Thanks to this convincing success, Rennes has increased its goal difference and is now on the heels of Paris Saint-Germain in the ranking of the best attack in Ligue 1.

To assume its objective of qualifying for European competition next season, Rennes needed to restore its confidence. After two defeats in a row against direct competitors (3-2 on their lawn against Monaco, 2-1 on the road to Strasbourg), the Bretons perfectly fulfilled their reconquest mission against neighbors Lorient quickly overwhelmed by the dynamism of the game. . Shortly after a quarter of an hour of very intense play, the Morbihannais cracked a first time on a shot under the bar of Benjamin Bourigeaud (17th, 1-0), then a second time on a flat foot full of cold blood from Martin Terrier to adjust Matthieu Dreyer (19th, 2-0). After the home striker’s 21st achievement of the season, Lorient could only see the beginning of the damage with these two goals conceded in three minutes on the first two local shots on target.

A manita to conclude in style

Creative offensively, the Rennais continued their collective demonstration against a team that was unable to enter the debates today. As soon as they returned from the locker room, Rennes killed the suspense by scoring a third time through their captain Hamari Traoré (47th, 3-0), author of a precise header from a cross from the untenable Bourigeaud who scored 9 goals and 12 assists decisive this season in Ligue 1. That said, Lorient believed for a moment to be able to return to the game after the exclusion of Aguerd for a foul as the last defender on Armand Laurienté (58th).

But in fact, Lorient did not exist against Rennes. Worse still, the fifteenth in Ligue 1 conceded two new goals which somewhat annoyed Christophe Pélissier, the Lorient coach. Flavien Tait added to the score with a long shot (79th, 4-0) and Gaëtan Laborde came into play to unlock his goal counter after six games without scoring (93rd, 5-0). With 75 goals in 34 matches, Rennes are only one step away from PSG to become the best attack in the championship. For its part, Lorient was unable to find the Rennes nets despite attempts by Laurent Abergel (87th) and Fabien Lemoine (90th). Failing to save honor, Lorient will have to continue to fight to save its place in Ligue 1.
