FOOTBALL OM Rennes Marseille and Rennais neutralize each other

OM-RENNES. The Marseillais and the Rennais left in a draw this Sunday, September 18 on the occasion of the 8th day of Ligue 1 (1-1). OM put an end to a series of five straight wins in the league.

17:10 – The summary of the match

OM and Rennes neutralized each other at the Vélodrome (1-1). In the first period, the Bretons did not leave a crumb to the Olympians and chained the corners. Finally, it was a clean Olympian who ended up deceiving Pau Lopez on an overflow from Rennes captain Hamari Traoré (25th). After this goal, the men of Bruno Genesio lowered their foot a little and suffered the assaults of the Marseillais who were not very inspired. A lot of technical faults and clumsiness prevented Tudor’s men from really worrying Steve Mandanda who had a rather quiet first act for his return to the Vélodrome. But in the second half, the Olympians came back with better technical quality and Mattéo Guendouzi’s goal quickly cemented this better shot. The French international cuts a corner from Veretout and catches up with the goal against his camp (52nd). The Marseillais continued to push for a success in the second period but the match quickly fell into a false rhythm giving way to clumsiness and numerous faults. Seven yellow cards were distributed to the players of this OM – Rennes. Marseille put an end to a series of five successes in a row but climbed, despite everything, temporarily to first place pending the matches of Lens in Nantes and PSG in Lyon.
