After victories against low flyers Girondins de Bordeaux, Dijon and Amiens, last round of visits to Stade Rennais did not have a top half on the mat and was Rudi García’s team is already behind in ten minutes. In the second half, Valère Germain scored the final score of 1-1 in 22 games with his first goal, which meant that his team has now climbed to fifth place in the standings and even the top four in a victory over AS Saint-Étienne. .

Of the thirteen away games this season, only three were won (against lowflies Dijon, En Avant Guingamp and Toulouse), five equal and five lost and the goal difference with -8 (12-20) is also anything but beautiful. In house, however, Jean-Louis Gasset’s team is still the number two behind the unapproachable Paris Saint-Germain, making Les Verts in a sense the Feyenoord of Ligue 1.
