It’s over! Rennes wins and leaves OM from second place
OM are no longer second at the end of this 37th matchday of Ligue 1. The Marseillais have been completely helpless against very enterprising Rennes who are regaining their hopes in the Champions League race before the final matchday of next week.
Martin Terrier comes out
The man of this Rennes-OM Martin Terrier gives way to Lesley Ugochukwu.
another five minutes
Five minutes of added time will be played in this match between Rennes and OM.
Break on the Rennes side
Three Rennes players are behind. Himari Traoré stands up, Martin Terrier seems to suffer just like Lovro Majer. For the moment, the three players remain on the lawn.
OM finally dangerous
After a good overflow on the right, Boubacar Kamara tries the chance outside the penalty area but his shot is deflected by Santamaria and goes for a corner.
We award not far from being able to score
On an overflow full of Traoré’s envy, the Rennes captain crosses towards Assignon who misses the ball a little when he was only 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 replaces Truffert.
Benjamin Bourigeaud leaves
Rennes first striker Benjamin Bourigeaud gave way to a huge ovation from Roazhon Park. Lorenz Asignon replaces him.
Second change for OM
Pape Gueye left his post soon after receiving a yellow card. To replace him is the Spaniard Pol Lirola.
Phenomenal rescue of Mandanda
What an exceptional save from Mandanda, who scored a sublime title on a close range attempt by Lovro Majer who has already seen a brace.
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 her face to face
It was undoubtedly the biggest opportunity for Marseille in this match. Bamba Dieng runs deep and tries to eliminate Gomis but the Rennes goalkeeper intervenes without fail in the Senegalese’s feet.
OM hasn’t scored yet
It is quite rare to be stressed. OM have not yet shot on goal in this match after nearly 70 minutes of play.
Laborde close to scoring an exceptional goal
Martin Terrier crosses to Gaëtan Laborde who attempts an acrobatic return. The former Montpellier striker misses the ball just a little.
Caleta-Car takes a yellow
The Croatian defender of Marseille comes out angry and kicks the corner post from Marseille’s half. 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 decidedly offensive substitute.
OM moved up to third place
With this setback, OM dropped to third in favor of Monaco who at the same time had the advantage against Brest. The Marseillais only have 30 minutes left to be masters of their destiny on the last day.
The time for the game is approaching
As the game time for this meeting approaches, the Rennais are still at the top of the table and are not worried by the Marseillais who are too shy in their attacks.
Martin Terrier plays a great game
Since the start of the match, Martin Terrier is arguably the best player of the match. Beyond his two assists, the former Strasbourg is omnipresent and is very correct in his choices.
The center of Ünder is missing
Cengiz Ünder tries to find Gerson at the far post but the Turkish cross is too far and out the door.
OM is a little better
Since returning from the locker room, OM looks better than in the first period. The Olympians no longer have the ball but the Rennais let their opponents arrive too.
Here we go again!
The 22 actors returned to the Roazhon Park lawn. The Marseillais, guided, must return to the net 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 lesson in football to the Marseillais and lead 2-0.
Bamba Dieng left to warm up
Jorge Sampaoli could make changes very quickly in this bout. The Senegalese striker, Bamba Dieng, has already started for the warm-up.
Bourigeaud misses twice as much
This action was eerily similar to the one that led to Rennes’ first goal, but this time Bourigeaud lacked precision in the last gesture. An offside position was therefore signaled.
Great atmosphere at Roazhon Park
Inevitably this second goal made the crowd even more excited at Roazhon Park. The atmosphere is great 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 a mistake by Luan Peres in the Marseille area, Benjamin Bourigeaud seized the opportunity but his shot flirted with Mandanda’s post after being deflected by Caleta-Car.
The smoke bombs are out of order
Smoke gradually develops in the stadium following the ignition of numerous smoke bombs in the stands of Roazhon Park.
Tait is warned
This time, Flavien Tait will not escape him. The Rennes midfielder faces Pape Gueye and Benoit Bastien warns him. Jorge Sampaoli also receives it for too many repeated challenges.
Gerson too short
Great opportunity for OM and Gerson. Mattéo Guendouzi crosses at the far post towards the Brazilian. The latter launches and tries to catch the ball but misses a few centimeters to score.
Final notice for Tait
After a serious foul by Flavien Tait on Kamara, Benoit Bastien told the Rennes midfielder that he would crack down on the next foul.
Gerson’s head is missing
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 match even after the advantage taken less than ten minutes ago.
Ronnier fails to recover well
Great opportunity for Valentin Rongier who finds himself alone in the penalty area of Rennes but lacks precision to recover the ball well given in depth by Harit.
The terrier’s strike ends in Mandanda’s gloves
The first goal has not yet fully woken up the Olympians who suffer, in the wake of the goal, a shot from Martin Terrier. Steve Mandanda is alert and lies down on the ball.
Benjamin Bourigeaud overturns Roazhon Park
Rennes opened the scoring on a perfectly executed quick action from Martin Terrier thrown deep. The former Lyonnais then finds Bourigeaud on the far post who deceives Mandanda with a flat foot.
Rennes do not exploit the counterattack well
The Rennais could have been dangerous for the first time in this match but Flavien Tait was unable to improve Martin Terrier’s recovery.
Sampaoli is very nervous
At the edge of the pitch, Jorge Sampaoli is already very tense and regularly attacks the fourth referee who asks him to calm down.
Omari stands up
Warmed up, Omari gets up after a good minute on the ground and seems to be complaining about his 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 help of the carers.
Already a large laundry in Rennes
First minute and first lesson with the great pressing of Rennes. The Bretons play high and put a lot of pressure on the Marseillais.
Let’s go to the Roazhon Park
The kick-off of this shock of the 37th matchday of Ligue 1 is given! OMs are heading to Rennes for a meeting with European flavors. The Olympians can qualify for the next Champions League this Saturday night.
Start of hostilities in fifteen minutes
The tension and the mood are building in Roazhon Park. The kick-off of this very important match of the 37th day of Ligue 1 will be given in fifteen minutes.
Marseille can match the record of 2009
If OM wins in Brittany this Saturday night, the Olympians will equal the record for points earned away from home in a season that dates back to the 2008/2009 financial year.
Rennes to continue its momentum?
Bruno Genesio’s players have been formidable in efficiency for several home games and have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight receptions.
The point in the standings
Before this massive shock, a quick look at the leaderboard is needed to fully understand the stakes of this bout. OM, 2nd, has a three-point lead over 3rd, Monaco and six points over Rennes, 5th. The Olympians could therefore officially qualify for the next Champions League tonight.
