After a fully successful start to the season and a six-week long break, Stade Rennais will return to competition this Thursday (7 p.m.) against Stade de Reims. Bruno Génésio’s men will obviously be favorites on paper, but beware of missteps. Presentation.

Despite a slight delay in ignition, the Rouge et Noir made a historic start with 31 points taken over the first fifteen days of Ligue 1. Present on the Championship podium, they are also undefeated since August 28, i.e. 17 consecutive matches in all competitions. After a good preparation punctuated by three successes, this meeting against the Stade de Reims comes at the right time. This is an opportunity for the Breton club to start its second half of the season perfectly and to confirm its ambitions on the national scene a little more.

Omari finally back, Doué and Majer absent

For this trip to Champagne, Bruno Génésio will be able to rely on an almost complete squad. Warmed Omari made his comeback during the break and does not seem far from his best level, according to the Rennes coach. Désiré Doué and Lorenz Assignon will be absent. The midfielder who injured his ankle last November during a match for the France U19 team should not play again for two weeks.

The right side is suffering from psoas pain which could keep him away from the field for a while. After his big injury which occurred last September, Baptiste Santamaria has returned to training. Finally, on the side of the globalists, Lovro Majer is still at rest while Steve Mandanda should take his place in the cages of Rennes this Thursday.

the Stadium Rennes opposed to a tough opponent

Even if the Bretilliens are favorites, they should not underestimate their opponents. After a very difficult start to the season, the Rémois have gradually regained confidence since the arrival of Will Still at the head of the team. Undefeated in the last seven days of the championship, they notably obtained a good draw against PSG and important victories against Auxerre and Nantes, two direct adversaries in the quest for maintenance. Carried by a very good Folarin Balogun, author of 8 goals and 2 assists in 15 games, the Stade de Reims therefore has everything of the opponent trap for the Stade Rennais.
