Rennes-OL: What happened last time
With the situation affected by COVID-19, Olympique Lyonnais could not go to Brittany last season to face Rennes -- the last duel between the two teams thus dates back to March 29, 2019, on the 30th Matchday of Ligue 1 and OL, then in third, visited Rennes, who were sitting eighth. After losing the reverse fixture at the Groupama Stadium, Nabil Fekir and his teammates wanted to have their revenge.
Our Lyonnais had a good number of chances but came up against each time, on the goalkeeper, a defender ... or the post as on this free kick from Fekir. Julien Stéphan's players were also trying their luck, but Anthony Lopes was vigilant. We would have to wait until the very end of the match to see a goal. A few minutes after coming, Martin Terrier latched on to a cross from Léo Dubois and beat Koubek from close range with his left foot. OL won by the smallest of margins and consolidated their position in third place, while Rennes fell back to tenth. Facing a Rennes team that is now a fellow European hopeful, Rudi Garcia's men will have to work hard again to bring back three points from Brittany.
