Stade Rennes – Nantes: the notes of the SRFC

Stade Rennes hosted FC Nantes in the derby at Roazhon Park this Sunday. Here are the Rennes player ratings, out of 10.

Mandala: 6

Two repulsed attacks against Blas (6e90e), the doorman did the job, despite several missed stairs.

Traore: 6

Suspended against Dynamo Kiev and soon against Lyon, the captain played his only game in two weeks perfectly. Reassuring and solid in his standards, but still naive on the yellow card he collects.

Rodon: 5

Correct throughout the encounter despite this recurring long reboot problem. A header went just wide from a corner (69e), and an incomprehensible tackle on Mohamed (89e), while his team led 3-0.

Theatre: 6

Effective match for the Belgian international, often rushed in his area but there for a clean slate.

Truffle: 6

Noticeable races at his side, a lot of volume and a technical quality at the rendezvous. Some mistakes all the same.

Xeka: 7

A successful first for the last-minute rookie, surprise holder this Sunday. Significant interceptions (3e13e17e42e), brought a good body game and a serenity.

Substituted for Ugochukwu after a good first 75 minutes.

Tait: 6

Sometimes inaccurate and author of bad choices, he stands at the beginning of Gouiri’s goal and raised his game level throughout the meeting.

Bourgeaud: 7

A great burst of energy for number 14 who put the necessary desire in everything he did. In all good moves without being decisive.

Replaced the last ten minutes by Désiré Doué, author of the masterpiece of the day.

Hollow: 7.5″

Lots of defensive work, then missed two chances with header (not on target, 45 .)e), then caught right by Pallois (72e), and finally the goal at halftime (79e), for a caviar for Doué (84e). Deciding for the derby, again.

Replaced by Sulemana before the end of the game, not far from fourth place.

Gouiri: 7.5

A goal to open the goal, from the head, and an activity in the game, especially for support. Two misses (5e40e), but already 3 goals in 7 games, and 3 assists with his offer for Terrier before the break goal.

Replaced the last minutes by Abline.

Potassium: 6

A decisive pass for Gouiri after making good use of the small depth, it was a good relay in the absence of dangerous opportunities.

Replaced by Majer, for a pass in 4-3-3.
