Stade Rennais leaves the competition after its narrow defeat against OM (1-0)

The shock of the round of 32 of the Coupe de France between Stade Rennais and Olympique de Marseille unfortunately ended in defeat (1-0) for Bruno Génésio’s proteges. Here are the flops of the meeting.

A difficult first half

Igor Tudor’s men immediately imposed a very high pace that the Bretons did not manage to follow. Overwhelmed in the duels in the middle of the field, Lesley Ugochukwu and his partners lacked aggression while the Olympians played their game forward. In addition to a magnificent free kick from Ruslan Malinovskyi on the post, the Marseillais nevertheless only very rarely put Doğan Alemdar in danger. But the pressure from the locals completely prevented the Rouge et Noir from getting closer to the opposing goals. As proof, they only managed to strike once in the first act.

Guendouzi punishes Stade Rennais

Upon returning from the locker room, the Bretilliens raised their level of play and logically created some very interesting opportunities. And while the highlights followed one another for them, it was ultimately the Olympians who unblocked the situation in a cruel way. After yet another loss of ball from Lovro Majer, Jordan Veretout entered the last twenty meters of Rennes before crossing in the direction of Mattéo Guendouzi. The former Lorient player gave Doğan Alemdar no chance to open the scoring (1-0, 59′). There was then half an hour on the clock, enough to overturn the meeting. The Rennais, however, lacked realism to hope to return to the game.

A game without for Majer

Symbol of the poor performance of Stade Rennais, the Croatian midfielder was not on his plate against Olympique de Marseille. He lost a lot of dangerous ball and failed to influence the attacking game of his team. An unusual performance which greatly diminished the Rennes team.

End of the adventure for the Rouge et Noir

Reduced by numerous absences, especially in the offensive sector, Stade Rennais lost on the smallest of the gaps against the Phocaeans (1-0). A rather frustrating defeat since Benjamin Bourigeaud’s teammates had the opportunity to equalize at the end of the match. Now eliminated from the Coupe de France, the Bretilliens will be able to fully concentrate on the championship and the Europa League.
