5 things to remember from Stade Rennais’ victory against Stade Brestois (3-1) in a friendly

by admin

This Thursday, Stade Rennais hosted Stade Brestois for a last friendly match before the resumption of the championship. Dominating and reassuring, the Bretilliens took the upper hand (3-1) over Finisteriens who turned around a lot. Here’s what to remember from the meeting.

The terrier double

If there is one that the truce has not cooled, it is Martin Terrier. Not invited for the World Cup, the winger took the opportunity to work on his preparation. After scoring a goal in the prolific victory against Celtic Glasgow (4-3) a few days ago, the number 7 was this time the detonator of his team against Brest. Full of composure, he went to unblock the situation at the start of the match following a well-negotiated counter-attack (1-0, 24th) before restoring the advantage to his team on penalty (2-1, 71st). The former Lyonnais therefore delivered a full performance, which bodes well for the second half of the season.

Stade Rennais in great shape

Serious and applied, the Rennais logically dictated the tempo of the meeting while the Brestois were content to operate in quick counterattacks. The locals therefore created multiple chances against the goals of Marco Bizot even if they sometimes lacked precision in the last gesture to widen the gap. Bruno Génésio’s players nevertheless had a very good match before the resumption of the championship which will take place for them on December 29, when they will face Stade de Reims.

Omari back

Absent since last May due to recurrent pubic pain, Warmed Omari made his comeback with the first team during the friendly match against Celtic Glasgow. Holder against Stade Brestois, he was reassuring despite a slight lack of form which is obviously understandable. One thing is certain, his comeback in the central hinge of Stade Rennais will do the greatest good. For their part, Baptiste Santamaria and Désiré Doué are both still in the infirmary.

Important changes on the side of Stade Brestois

Conversely, it is difficult to draw a real lesson from the performance of the Ty-Zefs when twenty-two different players followed one another from the first to the last minute of the game. An interesting tactic in terms of physical preparation, but which cost dearly in terms of the consistency of the team. Sometimes lost, the Finisterians have not managed to compete with their Breton neighbors.

Offensively shy Ty-Zefs

As often during the first part of the season, Stade Brestois experienced great difficulties in the offensive phase. Timid and imprecise, they only very rarely put Doğan Alemdar in danger. Romain Del Castillo had to rely on a penalty to equalize after the hour mark (1-1, 63rd). A goal that was good for Ty-Zefs who then let go in attack. They then chained the opportunities, but lacked success to return to Stade Rennais. Against Lyon on December 28, Brendan Chardonnet’s partners will have to show more if they hope to achieve a favorable result.
