The 26-year-old Rennes striker, who returned to his pre-injury performance (4 goals in 3 matches), once again played a key role in Rennes' victory this Saturday. From the 4th minute of play, Martin Terrier managed, with a bit of success, a nice one-two with Benjamin Lecomte's post to allow the Rouge et Noir to take the lead. Altruistic, he completed most of his passes (14/18) and worried Benjamin Lecomte on several occasions before his exit in the 72nd minute. Replaced by Ludovic Blas.
The Ivorian right piston had a very good match this Saturday against MHSC. At the origin of the penalty obtained at the start of the second half, he played a key role on the right side with 81% of successful passes (26/32) and won half of his duels (8/16). His brother Désiré, ill the night before and particularly tired, came out at half-time.
The MHSC captain allowed his team to believe in it again. Thanks to an excellent strike from outside the penalty area, the 32-year-old metronome allowed the visitors to come back to within a goal at the end of the match. His efforts were ultimately not enough but he was the best player on his team in Rennes.
He came on in the 72nd minute and almost missed everything. The former Nantes player was very personal after coming into play, only making two small passes (one of which missed). He also lost several balls in attack, five of his eight duels and did not target his only shot. A match to forget for the 26-year-old striker, who lost his starting place as the season progressed.
The 20-year-old Montpellier left-back had a difficult match. 13 lost balls, 38% of duels won and only one successful tackle in 90 minutes. He committed the irreparable just after the break after an uncontrolled tackle in the Montpellier penalty area on Guéda Doué, offering a penalty to Stade Rennais. He received a yellow card for this foul.
The Tunisian striker from Montpellier had a complicated match at Roazhon Park. Positioned at the forefront of a 5-4-1, the number 10 of the MHSC did not worry Steve Mandanda during the meeting. However, he had two shots on target but they were not dangerous. He also received a yellow card in the 30th minute for an irregular tackle on Santamaria.
