Nantes fell to an away defeat at the hands of Rennes at the Roazhon Park on Sunday. Rennes wanted to improve their league standing following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Brest in their previous game. Nantes, on the other hand, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 2-0 victory against FC Metz. After today’s result, Rennes and Nantes currently occupy 5th and 9th spots in the league, with 5 points and 4 points respectively after 3 matches.
After an un-eventful first half, Rennes piled on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Martin Terrier giving The Rennais the lead, 58 minutes in, leaving the final score at 1-0.
For Rennes, Kamal-Deen Sulemana, Eduardo Camavinga, Romain Del Castillo, Lesley Ugochukwu and Matthis Abline, came on for Jeremy Doku, Martin Terrier, Benjamin Bourigeaud, Sehrou Guirassy and Flavien Tait. Nantes brought on Roli Pereira De Sa, Samuel Moutoussamy, Dennis Appiah, Osman Bukari and Quentin Merlin for Moses Simon, Andrei, Sebastien Corchia, Renaud Emond and Pedro Chirivella.
