Winner 4-1 of ESTAC Troyes this Sunday, on behalf of the 25th day of Ligue 1, Stade Rennais FC resumed their march forward in the league. A 12th success in this 2021-2022 exercise which allows the Rouge et Noir to stay in touch with the podium, five points behind OGC Nice, and therefore the Champions League. After the great success of his men against the Trojans, Bruno Genesio first congratulated his troops, before calling for calm internally.
“It’s a good match, with goals and play. And our usual weak time which we were able to pass without incident. So I’m quite satisfied, even if I regret that we conceded a goal on the only shot on target […]. At halftime, the match should have been settled. But there is movement, lots of interesting things in our game, we are not going to be choosy […] It’s interesting to see that we can count on everyone. Tonight, we had nine players absent through injury, which leaves a lot of hope for the season because we will soon resume matches every three days. The race for Europe? When you see the gaps, every week the positions are likely to change. We must not panic or believe we have arrived”confided the former OL technician at a press conference.
