Stade Rennes - Brest: Rennes brings calm after the storm!

On the eve of the transfer window closing, Stade Rennes hosted Stade Brestois at Roazhon Park and won in the end, 3-1.

Stade Rennes 3-1 Brest

It was in a tense context that Stade Rennes received Brest this Wednesday night. Under the late rain, the red and blacks at the heart of a convulsive end to the transfer window wanted to take all three points. Without Gaëtan Laborde going to Nice, Bruno Genesio finally opted for a 4-3-3, Majer starting. Traoré was his replacement, as was Badé, while former SRFC Lillian Brassier started for the Brest side.

In red, the Rennais started, under a heavy downpour! On difficult terrain, Rennes put their foot directly on the ball, trying to find their marks. After ten minutes of endurance, Brest left their field when the rain subsided and both teams tried to close the game, still without opportunities. Bourigeaud woke up the public with a good hook in the area followed by a center captured by Bizot (13me). Tait was trying to combine in small spaces with Sulemana and Majer, without success. Bourigeaud, still he, with the captain’s armband on his arm, tried his luck from a distance, but his attempt was deflected (15me)! In the corner, Santamaría’s header went wide. Santamaria served again by Bourigeaud, was on target but found Bizot on her way who she captured (19me).

Rennes continued to put pressure on the Brest field, and after some good play between Meling, Bourigeaud and Tait, Majer saw his cross go wide. In the box later (25me), Terrier could not bat. In a nice double with Meling, Sulemana infiltrated the area and served to Tait who with a touch found Bourigeaud at the far post. The captain’s head jerked back, Assignon, who had followed him, also saw his shot blocked (26me)! Against Brest, Rodon pushed the ball and Brestois asked for a hand, not called by the referee. Terrier responded with a ferocious shot that came off a good save by Bizot (31me). Sulemana also tried her luck in the distance (33me) but also found the goalkeeper of SB29 on the way. Brest tried to respond but Belaïli’s shot from outside the box went wide. Then it was Tait’s turn to test Bizot, who placed well against his post (35me). Sulemana tried her luck again from a distance, but completely deflected her shot (40me). After a last long free kick that no one managed to deflect, Rennes returned to the locker room with a clean score.

Dominant but not goalscorer

Back from the locker room, the Brestois were more enterprising like Belaïli, hooked by Assignon, without fault for the referee. Meling found Bourigeaud in a distant center (50me) who took a corner and Rennes opened the scoring through Rodon, who disarmed a corner kick taken by Majer (53me). Struggling at times during the first half, the Welshman gave his team the lead, 1-0.

But a few minutes later, following a corner, Honorat rammed a ball that lodged flush with Mandanda’s post. 1-1 and SB29 scored on their first shot on goal of the match. Bruno Genesio reacted with two changes. Abline and Doué replaced Sulemana and Majer, passing Rennes 4-4-2. The SRFC went on the attack again, and Tait still faced Bizot (67me). Assignon also hit from distance in the aftermath of a corner, but fell into a forest of Brest legs.

The hour of play passed, Brest recovered the hair of the beast, without being very dangerous, but that coincided with bad weather at Rennes. Slimani had fun in defense but completely disarmed his shot against Mandanda (77me). Rennes advanced, Bourigeaud requested Bizot from a corner (80me). The end of the match was marked by conflictive action, Abline having entered the area, trapped by Brassier. The referee did not flinch.

It was necessary at the end of the game for Traoré to overflow at the start for Martin Terrier to leave the penalty spot to place his victorious header (89me). 2-1 and Roazhon Park rejoiced… and rejoiced again when Désiré Doué, at the end of a drive down the left flank, deceived Bizot with a cross. 3-1, the score did not move, despite a Belkebla crossbar in the final moments.

At the end of a generally dominated encounter, Rennes got scared but won 3-1 at home and brought calm after the storm at the start of the season.
