Majer is leaving
Exit by Majer, also author of a great contest, instead of Tait.
Doku comes into play!
Doku replaces Terrier and will certainly take Majer’s place on the left flank of Rennes’ attack.
Leave Gims for Dembele!
The goalkeeper of Stade Rennais gives priority to the OL striker. Dembélé takes everything in his path and the referee whistles a foul.
It does not matter
The corner is taken badly and the Rennes keep the danger away!
Corner for OL!
It’s a whole different game now! The Lyonnais push and offer themselves a new angle!
BUT FOR OL!
Hope is a little reborn! Toko Ekambi averts the ball from Faivre and shoots it into the back of the net! 1-4!
A goal that was ultimately attributed to Hamari Traoré. The Rennes defender has indeed deflected the ball into his own nets.
The instructions remain the same on the Lyonnais side. We somehow try to put the danger in the box by centering. Follow New Rennes detour and bend!
Nothing, still nothing…
Faivre’s corner kick yields nothing. The sixth for Lyon in this part. The whistles are becoming more and more numerous…
Corner for OL!
Why not narrow the gap at this corner?
A first since 1989…
We have to go back to August 1989 and a defeat to Sohaux (4-0) to see OL lose by four goals at home, in the league.
6 shots, 5 on target and 4 goals… The Rennais collectively dominate the match, but it is by being lethal in the last gesture that they leave no chance to their opponents of the day…
TARGET FOR REINDEER! 4-0!
Brilliant goal from Martin Terrier!
The French environment sends a cannonball that leaves Lopez no chance. A big blow on the side of Lyon…
The teams will not start again at the same bases as in the first part. The Rennais seem to have decided to evolve into a counter-attack.
Gusto and Kadewere make their entrance
Gusto and Kadewere replace Dubois and Mendes respectively. A very offensive choice for Peter Bosz!
Start the second half!
Return to play at the Groupama Stadium
Rest: Lyon 0 Rennes 3
The Rennais return to the locker room with a large lead on the scoreboard. A logical and deserved lead given the perfect copy Burno Génésio’s men made in this first act.
Result: Lyon 0-3 Rennes
GOOOOO FOR REINDEER! 3-0!
KO for OL!
After his hand foul earlier, Lopez misses his raise. Stade Rennais took advantage of this mistake and recovered the ball. Martin Terrier serves Majer who pushes the ball into an empty net.
One more minute
The fourth referee indicates that there will be one minute of extra time.
Free kick for Lyon
After Majer’s foul on Paqueta, Faivre tries to service one of his teammates on this bummer, but the Rennes defense fend off the danger.
Head of Toko Ekambi!
Toko Ekambi escapes Rennes’ mark, but his header goes over Lyon’s goals.
Lyon put their foot on the ball
The Lyonnais try to put the best possible danger through crosses. Rennes’ defense remained attentive, but the ball systematically returned to OL’s feet.
OL do it better, but it’s still not enough!
Violation for OL
A lot of intensity, a lot of effort and therefore logical errors. This time the battle in midfield is won by Caqueret! Error for OL.
Lost the ball immediately…
The Lyonnais try to bring the danger with a combination, but the Rennais quickly get rid of the danger.
Corner for Lyon!
After a lack of communication between Gomis and Aguerd, OL gets a corner!
Lyon shows a different face
Paqueta tries to serve Dembélé, but his pass is blocked by the Rennes defence. The ball is still in the Olympians’ feet.
Lyon urges to close the gap!
Dembélé tries his luck!
The OL striker tries his luck from the right side of the Rennes penalty area, but his shot is too advanced.
OL almost tenth!
OL is almost tenth with their defeat and sees the European places escape them after the defeat against LOSC (0-1) three weeks ago. Rennes climbs onto the podium.
Nice attempt by Ndombélé but the ball escapes from the frame!
Truffert sees yellow
Third yellow of the game and the first side of Rennes: Truffert is warned after a poorly controlled tackle on Faivre.
Return of Lukeba!
Superb return of Lukeba coming to stop a counterattack from Rennes. While Majer tries his luck from the entrance to the surface, Lukeba tackles and saves the homeland.
Anthony Lopez reads Rennes’ play well and prevents Laborde from getting a face-to-face by taking the ball back.
On a nice pass by Paqueta from the left side of the Lyon attack, Dembélé tries his luck with a touch of the ball, but his shot goes well over Gomis’s goal.
Lyon’s first chance!
Lyon in trouble
The Lyonnais struggle to find the solution and cannot avoid the large block of Rennes.
Midfield battle won by Rennes!
Capital against Porto, Caqueret is absent at the start of the match. Well aided by Laborde, who does not hesitate to withdraw to help the Rennes midfielder, Lyon’s midfield is clueless.
Yellow for Ndombele
Probably frustrated, Ndombele is logically warned after this late intervention in midfield. The Rennais are above all in all areas…
Santa Maria stays down
The second goalscorer of the match sees Paqueta take the ball from him with great effort. The ball loses contact and the tension builds.
The Lyonnais are really in trouble. Offside signaled by the linesman on this corner. Very complicated game.
Corner for OL
De Lyonnais tried to react and Faivre saw his cross blocked by the opposing team. Corner follows.
Lyon takes the water!
Rennes pushes again and tries to find the net again! All of Génésio’s soldiers win their duels, leaving no chance for the Gones to be dangerous for the time being.
AND TWO TWO FOR RENNES!
Santa Maria doubles! After a corner and a deviation from Paqueta, the French midfielder tried his luck and the counterattack prevented Lopez from taking action!
Already 2-0 for Stade Rennais!
TARGET FOR REINDEER!
Bourigeaud comes to reward the Rennais for their perfect start to the race. Dominated head and shoulders, the Lyonnais saw Laborde, Majer and thus Bourigeaud exchange short passes before finishing!
Beautiful three-way game and sumptuous goal!
Corner for nothing
Gomis clears the danger of fists.
Corner for OL!
Faivre’s cross is countered and OL will be able to try to create danger from a corner.
The Lyonnais in trouble
The Rennes have been setting the law since the start of the race. More dedicated, more technically correct, the players of Génésio completely dominate this start of the match!
OL supporters make noise
Gala atmosphere at Groupama Stadium this Sunday afternoon. The Gones are making themselves heard!
THE CHISEL OF BOURIGEAUD!
Sublime collective action by Stade Rennais concluded with beautiful scissors by Benjamin Bourigeaud. Lopez clears the danger, but the referee had already called offside. Action for nothing, but still fun action.
Ball monopolized by Rennes
For now, it is the Genesio players who dictate the game, Rennes has his foot on the ball.
A 4-3-3 for Stade Rennais
Genesio seems to have decided to play in 4-3-3 with Majer on the left and Terrier on the right of Rennes’ attack.
Offside for Rennes
First inspiration of Stade Rennais with Jonas Martin trying to find Gaetan Laborde. The Lyon defense is attentive and the linesman raises his flag.
On to the first period!
The kick-off has been given! The Rennais take part.
The composition of Rennes
