LIGUE 1 – 14th day – Rennes miraculously, Lille cursed: The two teams leave in a draw

Lille and Rennes were unable to decide. This Sunday afternoon, the two teams left in a draw (1-1), during the fourteenth day of Ligue 1. At the Pierre-Mauroy stadium in Villeneuve d’Ascq, Benjamin Bourigeaud, on penalty (58th) responded to the opener of José Fonte (16th). In the classification of the French championship, the Bretons consolidate their third place, while LOSC does the same for its seventh position.

The matches seem to follow and look alike for the Mastiffs. But unlike their last outing, on the lawn of Lyon (1-0), this time, the Northerners take a point. The fault, at first, to Steve Mandanda. Paradoxically, it was the Rennes goalkeeper who allowed the locals to open the scoring, after releasing a ball. Behind, José Fonte did not hesitate to conclude, at close range, from the right (16th, 1-0). To become, at 38 years and 319 days, the oldest scorer this season in the five major European championships. Ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United / 37 years and 246 days) and Riad Nouri (Ajaccio / 37 years and 151 days).

Gouiri, in the West the revival


Lille hit the uprights three times

But, subsequently, the former Marseillais therefore proved to be impassable. And Rémy Cabella (25th), Adam Ounas (82nd), Benjamin André (90th + 2) or even Jonathan David (40th, 67th, 78th) can testify to this. However, the Canadian striker was able to deceive the Rennes goalkeeper, to offer victory to his people, but he was offside at the start of this action (83rd). What the VAR then confirmed.

And when it’s not Steve Mandanda who disgusted the Lille attackers, it’s, as is very often the case since the start of this season, the amounts. LOSC touched three more in this meeting. And it was Tiago Djalo (66th), then Ounas and David (71st), who were the unfortunates in history. It is the third time that Lille have touched the amounts three times in the same Ligue 1 meeting since 2006-07 and also the third time that they have not won in this case after August 2015, against Bordeaux (0-0 ), and September 2020 against Marseille (1-1).

Rennes can thank Bourigeaud

Certainly to the delight of Rennes, who were clearly not having a good day and who were, on the whole, unrecognizable in the game. Even if Benjamin Bourigeaud, from the penalty spot, was able to save this precious point, d a powerful strike from the right (58th, 1-1). It is this same Rennais who had already requested Lucas Chevalier in the first act (11th). For the only two attempts of his own in this meeting. Rennes have drawn just twice against Lille, their lowest tally in a Ligue 1 match for eight years (also twice against Nantes in November 2014).

Bruno Genesio’s men ended this meeting at ten, after the expulsion of Birger Meling, who saw his yellow card be transformed into red, after intervention by the VAR (90th). But the Breton club therefore saves a small point and retains its place on the podium, also continuing its series of invincibility (ten wins, six draws).
