Kind of Martin Terrier
The man of this Rennes-OM Martin Terrier gives way to Lesley Ugochukwu.
five more minutes
Five minutes of additional time will be played in this meeting between Rennes and OM.
Breakage on the Rennes side
Three Rennes players are down. Himari Traoré gets up, Martin Terrier seems to be suffering just like Lovro Majer. For the moment, the three players remain on the lawn.
OM finally dangerous
After a good overflow on the right side, Boubacar Kamara takes his chance outside the penalty area but his shot is deflected by Santamaria and goes for a corner.
Let’s assign not far from being able to score
On an overflow full of envy from Traoré, the Rennes captain crosses towards Assignon who narrowly misses the ball when he was alone a few meters from Mandanda.
New changes for Rennes
Bruno Genesio makes three changes. Laborde is replaced by Guirassy, Jonas Martin replaces Flavien Tait and Meling comes into play in place of Truffert.
Benjamin Bourigeaud leaves
Rennes’ first striker Benjamin Bourigeaud gave way to a huge ovation from Roazhon Park. Lorenz Assignon replaces him.
Second change for OM
Pape Gueye gives up his place just after receiving a yellow card. It is the Spanish side Pol Lirola who replaces him.
Phenomenal save from Mandanda
What an exceptional save from Mandanda who made a sublime headline on an attempt at close range by Lovro Majer who already saw himself scoring a double.
Pape Gueye is warned
Benoit Bastien is forced to crack down on Pape Gueye who makes a more than limited intervention on Bourigeaud.
Bamba Dieng misses his face to face
It was undoubtedly the biggest opportunity for Marseille in this match. Bamba Dieng is launched in depth and tries to eliminate Gomis but the Rennes goalkeeper intervenes without fail in the feet of the Senegalese.
OM still haven’t scored
It’s rare enough to be stressed. OM still haven’t had a shot on target in this match after almost 70 minutes of play.
Laborde close to scoring an exceptional goal
Martin Terrier crosses towards Gaëtan Laborde who tries an acrobatic return. The former Montpellier striker just misses the ball.
Caleta-Car takes a yellow
The Croatian defender from Marseille comes out angry and kicks the corner post from the Marseille half of the field. Benoit Bastien gives him a yellow card for this gesture.
Bamba Dieng returns
First change for Jorge Sampaoli and OM. Senegalese striker Bamba Dieng replaces Duje Caleta-Car for a resolutely attacking replacement.
OM moved up to third
With this setback, OM fell to third position in favor of Monaco who were leading against Brest at the same time. The Marseillais only have 30 minutes left to be masters of their destiny on the last day.
Game time is approaching
As the hour of play approaches in this meeting, the Rennais are still leading in the score and are not worried by the Marseillais who are too timid in their attacks.
Martin Terrier makes a big game
Since the beginning of the meeting, Martin Terrier is undoubtedly the best player of the match. Beyond his two assists, the former Strasbourg player is omnipresent and is very fair in his choices.
The center of Ünder is missed
Cengiz Ünder tries to find Gerson at the far post but the Turkish cross is too far and goes out of goal.
OM is a little better
Since returning from the locker room, OM seem better than during the first period. The Olympians no longer have the ball but the Rennais also let their opponents come.
Here we go again!
The 22 actors returned to the lawn of Roazhon Park. The Marseillais, led, must come back to the score in a complicated match for them.
End of the first period!
Benoit Bastien puts an end to this first act of this Rennes-OM. The Bretons give, for the moment, a football lesson to the Marseillais and lead 2-0.
Bamba Dieng left for the warm-up
Jorge Sampaoli could make changes very quickly in this encounter. The Senegalese striker, Bamba Dieng, has already left for the warm-up.
Bourigeaud misses the double
This action was strangely similar to the one that led to Rennes’ first goal, but this time Bourigeaud lacked accuracy in the last gesture. An offside position was then signaled.
Big atmosphere at Roazhon Park
Inevitably this second goal made the crowds even more excited at Roazhon Park. The atmosphere is grandiose in Brittany.
Majer doubles the lead for Rennes
Rennes takes the break! Martin Terrier is still in charge and offers a goal to Lovro Majer. OM is overwhelmed!
What an opportunity for Rennes
After an error by Luan Peres in the Marseille area, Benjamin Bourigeaud took his chance but his shot flirted with Mandanda’s post after being deflected by Caleta-Car.
The smoke bombs are out
The smoke gradually takes place in the stadium following the lighting of several smoke bombs in the stands of Roazhon Park.
Tait is warned
This time, Flavien Tait will not escape it. The Rennes midfielder tackles Pape Gueye and Benoit Bastien gives him a yellow card. Jorge Sampaoli also receives it for too many repeated challenges.
Gerson too short
Big chance for OM and Gerson. Mattéo Guendouzi crosses at the far post towards the Brazilian. The latter throws himself and tries to regain the ball but he misses a few centimeters to score.
Final warning for Tait
After a gross foul by Flavien Tait on Kamara, Benoit Bastien told the Rennes midfielder that he would crack down on the next foul.
Gerson’s head misses
The Brazilian midfielder projects into the Rennes area and receives a cross from Under. But Gerson’s head misses Alfred Gomis’ goal.
Rennes are playing very well
The Rennais manage to play a more than pleasant game and dominate, for the moment, this meeting even after the advantage they took less than ten minutes ago.
Ronnier fails to recover well
Great opportunity for Valentin Rongier who finds himself alone in the Rennes penalty area but lacks accuracy to recover the ball well given in depth by Harit.
Terrier strike ends up in Mandanda’s gloves
The opener has not yet fully awakened the Olympians who suffer, in the wake of the goal, a strike from Martin Terrier. Steve Mandanda is vigilant and lays down on the ball.
Benjamin Bourigeaud capsizes Roazhon Park
Rennes opened the scoring on a perfectly executed fast action from Martin Terrier launched in depth. The former Lyonnais then finds Bourigeaud at the far post who deceives Mandanda with a flat foot.
Rennes do not make good use of a counterattack
The Rennais could have been dangerous for the first time in this match but Flavien Tait did not manage to improve the recovery of Martin Terrier.
Sampaoli is very nervous
On the edge of the field, Jorge Sampaoli is already very tense and regularly attacks the fourth referee who asks him to calm down.
Omari gets up
Warmed Omari gets up after a good minute on the ground and seems to complain about the shoulder.
Omari remains on the ground
After a tough duel with Amine Harit, the young Rennes defender Omari remains on the ground and asks for the intervention of the caregivers.
Already a big laundry in Rennes
First minute and first lesson with the big pressing Rennes. The Bretons play high and put a lot of pressure on the Marseillais.

Rennes to continue its momentum?
