by admin

This Saturday evening, Stade Rennais obtained its qualification for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France by defeating the Girondins de Bordeaux. Here is the summary of the meeting.

For their entry into the competition, the Red and Blacks challenged a trap opponent not to be underestimated. And despite the gap of a division between the two formations, the Bordelais had the necessary weapons to pose big problems to the Rennais, like Nancy last season (defeat 1-1, 4-3 on the tab. ). Without shining, the Bretilliens nevertheless delivered a serious performance to overcome their opponents and thus continue their journey in the Cup.

Bourigeaud opens the scoring

Without complex, the Girondins created interesting opportunities from the outset thanks to a fast game carried forward. The Breton defense nevertheless managed to hold on with serenity. On the other side of the field, Jérémy Doku did not hesitate for a second to provoke his opponents with the ball.

The game was then very open while no observation round had taken place. And on one of its first chances, Stade Rennais managed to hit the mark through Benjamin Bourigeaud (0-1, 23rd). The former Lensois took the opportunity to celebrate in the manner of Martin Terrier who, we recall, will be absent for many months after a rupture of the cruciate ligaments.

Bordeaux equalize just before half-time

The opener did not however bury the hopes of the locals who continued to develop their football. They did not go far from equalizing in stride by taking advantage of the large spaces left by the Bretillian defense. But Stade Rennais seemed to take the upper hand despite everything, especially technically with great accuracy in the middle of the field. On a last opportunity before the break, the Girondins equalized after a scramble near the Rennes area (1-1, 45+2).

Stade Rennais did the job

Upon returning from the locker room, the physiognomy of the match was still unchanged. The technically comfortable Rennes kept possession while the Bordelais worked on a quick counter-attack. Jérémy Doku nevertheless managed to restore the advantage to Stade Rennais after a good collective movement from Bruno Génésio’s men (1-2, 53rd). The visitors had at that time done the hardest part, especially after the exclusion of Malcom Bokele (60th) for an uncontrolled intervention on Flavien Tait.

Amine Gouiri and his partners could have widened the gap at the end of the match with more precision, but this was not the case. Bordeaux therefore kept hope until the final whistle while the Red and Blacks did not fall into the trap. They will indeed participate in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France just like Stade Brestois and Plabennec.
