Rennes 3-1 Amiens
Goals: Hunou (39e), Niang (62)e) and Rapinha (79e) for Rennes // Guirassy (35e) for Amiens.On the street in the European Cup, the Stade Rennais is better in the league, chaining a second win at home within a week after the one snatched against Toulouse (3-2).
Facing Amiens, it was the visitors who opened the scoring. Originally, a beautiful heelade signed Gael Kakuta and allows Serhou Guirassy to deceive Edouard Mendy at the first post (0-1, 35e). On corner, Rennes manages to equalize with success when Adrien Hunou takes the ball at close range, foxing surfaces, after a head of Morel repulsed by Gurtner (1-1, 39e).
More enterprising in the second half, the Bretons take the lead (2-1, 62e) with a heelade of M'Baye Niang on a center at the first post of Romain del Castillo, who had just replaced the young Yann Gboho. After sending a minette on the bar, the Brazilian Raphinha finally marks his first goal in Ligue 1: a penalty that seals the Rennes victory (3-1, 79e) ten minutes from the end.And here are Julien Stephan's men coming back just three points from SCO Angers, 2e of the championship. The power of the Ligue 1 Conforama. A nice gift for Eduardo Camavinga, who is celebrating his 17th birthday this Sunday.
