What a panache! In a lively and intense meeting at Roazhon Park, Stade Rennais and Tottenham separated with a draw for the first day of this group G (2-2). First behind after a goal against their own camp, Rennes reacted thanks to Flavien Tait and then put themselves in a position to win the match via Gaëtan Laborde. But in the euphoria of this second goal, the locals conceded an equalizer signed Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. After two consecutive defeats in the league, Rennes has not regained the taste for success but can draw positive elements from this meeting.
Eager to give more dynamism to his attack, Bruno Génésio asked the offensive trio Laborde-Sulemana-Tait to combine regularly with his point Serhou Guirassy. Listened to, the technician trained at Olympique Lyonnais was able to realize that his center forward perfectly served as a fulcrum to create danger for the opponent.

Twice, Guirassy was involved on the two local goals, decisive passer on the equalizer of Tait with a nice curled shot (23rd, 1-1) and detonator on the goal of Gaëtan Laborde, attentive to the result of a strike from Kamaldeen Sulemana diverted by Pierluigi Gollini (71st, 2-1). Clearly, Rennes played the game and gave his audience the feeling that the evolutions in the offensive intentions are positive.
Rennes extends the beautiful series for France
What must Rennes regret, after all? Undoubtedly a start a little too timid, because of the opening of the score of the visitors when Lucas Moura forced Loïc Badé to deflect the ball in his own goal (11th, 0-1), but also a lack of emotional control at the time to take advantage. Almost too fiery, Flavien Tait countered a cross to allow Højbjerg to equalize closely in front of Romain Salin (76th, 2-2).
Rennes tried by all means to regain the advantage with in particular a deflected strike from Guirassy (87th), but the balance between the two teams sealed the meeting on a sharing of points. For its part, Tottenham has never won a meeting in France in six European Cup matches. The beautiful series continues …
