This Monday evening, Stade Rennais hosted OGC Nice on the 17th day of Ligue 1. After a very good match, the Rouge et Noir managed to snatch a victory at the end of the match (2-1 ).
Rennais Stadium : 6
While the Bretilliens had started their game in the worst possible way against Reims a few days ago, this time they started their duel perfectly against the Niçois. Applied, the premises quickly created a first opportunity transformed by the inevitable Martin Terrier (1-0, 5th). Technically correct, they then set foot on the ball by imposing their well-oiled game. A few minutes later, number 7 even thought of doubling the bet before his goal was disallowed following an offside position. In the process, the Aiglons then made their comeback thanks to a magnificent strike from Ross Barkley (1-1, 21st).
And as the break approached, while he was making an excellent match, Martin Terrier unfortunately went out on a stretcher after seriously injuring his knee. Rarely worried defensively, the Rouge et Noir continued to push on returning from the locker room, but lacked precision in the last gesture. In the final moments of the meeting, it was Benjamin Bourigeaud, author of a superb match, who went to offer victory to his people at the end of the suspense (2-1, 89th). A logical success given the very good performance of Stade Rennais.
Steve Mandanda : 5
The vice-world champion has only very rarely been put in danger against OGC Nice. Attentive, he initially perfectly deflected a first shot from Ross Barkley before losing to a second which went into the skylight. A correct match, but nothing more.
Birger Meling : 5
The Norwegian side signed a serious performance. He came to help his partners in the offensive phase, but sometimes lacked precision in his transmissions. Rarely exceeded in defense, he was finally replaced by Adrien Truffert (72nd).
Arthur Theate : 7
While he remained on a failed match against Reims, the central defender had a reassuring meeting on all points. Solid in his interventions, he also showed himself applied in the transmission.
Christopher Wooh : 4
The Cameroonian encountered more difficulties against the Aiglons. He lacked serenity defensively and sometimes opted for risky choices. A rather disappointing performance overall.
Hamari Traore: 6
The captain was almost never put in danger by Nicolas Pépé and therefore took the opportunity to project himself forward. He has often split behind Benjamin Bourigeaud with success.
Xeka : 6
The former Lille resident perfectly fulfilled his role as sentinel. Guarantor of the balance of his team, he demonstrated a good science of placement.
Lovro Majer : 5
Holder for the first time since his return from the World Cup, the Croatian international did not succeed in his biggest match under the colors of Brittany. Partly at fault on Ross Barkley’s equalizer, he was replaced by Flavien Tait (72nd) who offered a superb assist to Benjamin Bourigeaud.
Benjamin Bourigeaud : 8
What a match for Bourgige! A true master of the Rennes attack, he distributed the slammed passes one after the other. At the start of the action on the goal of Martin Terrier, he also gave the victory to his team at the very end of the game. Simply grand.
Martin Terrier (not rated)
What a blow for Stade Rennais! Author of the opener, he made as usual an excellent start to the match in all areas of the game. But unfortunately, Martin Terrier may not turn the field back for a while. Victim of a serious knee injury, he was stretchered out screaming in pain. Of course, we wish him the best of recovery…
Jeremy Doku : 5
Entering the game in place of Martin Terrier, the Red Devil did not take long to shine. He provoked the opposing defenders a lot and should have even obtained a penalty after being hooked in the box. The winger, however, lacked realism at times.
Amine Gouiri : 5
The centre-forward made a lot of effort on the front of the attack. Decisive on the opener, he had the tremendous inspiration to chase the ball.
Arnaud Kalimuendo : 4
His teammates had great difficulty finding him in depth and so he preferred to shift to the side to touch the ball. Present on the opener, he was replaced at the end of the match by Kamaldeen Sulemana (84th).
