Rennes finally left no chance for the Stéphanois in this “summit” at the start of the championship. After a very muddled start to the match on both sides, the Bretons took over with lethal efficiency.
After the beautiful header of Aguerd (1-0), upon receipt of a surgical corner from Bourigeaud, Guirassy put his people away after returning from the locker room. Author of an acrobatic recovery (2-0), the former Amiénois confirms his good integration into the workforce of Julien Stéphan.
The Rennais led, dominated, without much brilliance. Nzonzi and Camavinga were invaluable in the midfield if not really dangerous. Behind, goalkeeper Salin more than made up for the absence of Mendy, leaving for Chelsea.
Saint-Etienne pushed, reinforced in front by the changes, but never worried the Rennes goalkeeper. It was on the other side that the entrants hit the mark: launched to the right, Raphinha found Hunou who, with a lob on Moulin, swept away the last hopes of the Greens. 3 goals to 0. Logical.
With thirteen points out of fifteen, Les Rennais continue their clear lead in Ligue 1, two points ahead of Lille and three over their opponents of the day.
Thank you to everyone for following this meeting with us! We meet tomorrow for the cycling world championships, then Ligue 1.
Beautiful evening !
