Les Gones had won their first success of the season in Rennes. They did not re-release the performance in their stadium. Stade Rennes won 3-2 at Groupama Stadium this Friday, opening the 19th day of Ligue 1. The Bretons led 3-0 at the break, with a double from Martin Terrier and a goal from Désiré Doué. OL reignited the suspense after the break thanks to Henrique and Alexandre Lacazette, in vain... In the championship standings, Lyon remains 16th and in a play-off position. Rennes is 9th.
Eager to return to victory, the Lyonnais made a serious start to the match driven by a pair of Caqueret - Tolisso on the legs, while Rennes was discreet during the first twenty minutes. In the 22nd minute, Terrier delivered a real whiplash to the lion. By opening the score from a tight angle with a beautiful left-footed shot, the former player of the house had just put the Lyon defense to sleep for the rest of the half. A passer on the opening score, Doué showed to what extent he was, starting from his left side he stared at Mata who only looked at him, before sending a missile at the entrance to the area. Rennes shot twice to lead 2-0! Five minutes later, Martin Terrier added another layer, and scored his second goal in Ligue 1 this season, after a confusing situation from a corner. The Groupama Stadium accompanies the return to the locker room with a bronca.
The second act started like the first, but this time, Lyon scored. After long attacks, Henrique reduced the gap and relaunched his team by placing his left foot strike in a mouse hole. Twenty minutes later, Lacazette fought with the defenders and found the fault in Mandanda's goal. The “general” ignites the OL park and launches the Lyonnaise recovery operation. In vain... The locals pushed until the end and showed a much better face but it was already too late (2-3 final score). The Bretons were hot, but came away with the three points thanks to a controlled first period.
