Expected to turn after the elimination Thursday in the Europa League, the Bretons made a disappointing start by being jostled by aggressive Amiens. With a significant technical waste from both formations on a lawn of poor quality, this part struggled to take off with a rhythm also chopped by mistakes.
In a flash of genius, Guirassy, well served by a heel of Kakuta, surprised Mendy from a long shot at the entrance to the surface (0-1, 35). Sufficient to launch this match? Yes ! Because in the wake, Rennes was finally projected and Hunou, in two stages, took advantage of a scramble to equalize at close range (1-1, 39th)!
Returning from the locker room, Mbaye Niang stood out, but his shot was pushed back by Gurtner. A few minutes later, the Senegalese did not miss a second opportunity by taking from Madjer a center of Del Castillo (2-1, 62nd). Superb action!
Definitely very stirring in the second half, Niang was a miserable Chedjou and got a penalty after the intervention of the VAR. Taking advantage of a gesture of class Niang, which left him this attempt, Raphinha scored his first goal with the Breton club a shot on the left (3-1, 79th).
"Yes, we were keen to win, to make up for Thursday with the elimination in the Europa League. We started with difficulties, but we managed to recover in the second half. I wanted to reward Raphinha because he made a lot of effort and he had not scored yet, so I wanted to give him this gift, "Mbaye Niang told beIN Sports.
