End of the first act in this very animated match where no net shook. Steve Mandanda saved a penalty while AS Monaco are 10 against 11 since the fifteenth minute.
What an opportunity for Vanderson
The Monegasque side is served by his counterpart on the other side Caio Henrique but he does not manage to find the frame of Mandanda.
Laborde’s strike is deflected
After a good movement from Rennes, Gaëtan Laborde shoots but his attempt is deflected by the Monegasque rear guard.
Nübel still master of his surface
Decidedly, Nübel is impassable for the moment. The Monegasque goalkeeper still catches an opposing ball.
four more minutes
Four minutes of additional time will be played in this first period.
Traoré’s strike flies away
The Rennes captain controls and turns around and continues with a very complicated volley. His attempt flies away completely.
63% ball possession for Rennes
The Bretons no longer have the ball since the exclusion of Fofana. Genesio’s men have 63% possession.
Excellent feedback from Maripan
Martin Terrier is still in control and shoots but Maripan makes a good comeback and deflects for a corner.
What a stop from Mandanda
It’s a goalie game! Exceptional stop by Mandanda while Diatta was alone in the penalty area on a good serve from Caio Henrique.
Nübel intervenes again
Once again, Nübel is irreproachable and intervenes on a cover of Martin Terrier.
Mandanda catches up and saves the penalty
Steve Mandanda saves the penalty taken by Disasi and makes up for his mistake.
Missed exit from Mandanda who commits a foul in the box
The completely failed outing of Mandanda on Embolo provokes a foul from the former Marseillais. A penalty is whistled for the players of the Principality.
Another wonderful stop from Nübel
What a save from Nübel who intervenes, this time, on a point-blank header from Martin Terrier.
Nice stop from Nübel
The Monegasque goalkeeper is still in demand after a long shot from Santamaria.
Jérémie Pignard whistles and invites the two teams to refresh themselves.
Accumulation of faults
For a few minutes and the red card, the match has been bogged down in a false rhythm chopped up by a greater number of faults.
New card for Rennes
Arthur Theate takes a yellow card right after his center hinge teammate.
Rodon gets a yellow
The Rennes defender is cautioned after a foul on Breel Embolo.
Nübel makes a huge mistake on a back pass. The former Bavarian misses his control and is forced to intervene on Laborde but the former Montpellier player falls too easily and the referee does not whistle for a penalty.
Terrier takes his chance
Nübel lays down well on Martin Terrier’s strike after a quick action from the Bretons.
Diatta tries his luck
The Senegalese is launched in depth by Jean Lucas and takes his chance in the area but his shot goes well above the cages of Steve Mandanda.
Philippe Clement is forced to make a change
Wissam Ben Yedder gives way after the red card. The young Magassa replaces him and takes his first steps in Ligue 1.
Red for Fofana!
It is stupor to Louis II! Fofana is excluded after a sole on Martin Terrier. AS Monaco will play at 10 for 1h15.
The bar for Monaco
What a mine from Vanderson who strikes from outside the box. The strike from the Monegasque side crashes on the bar and goes out of goal.
Tait’s center runs away from teammates
Flavien Tait transplants in the axis and sends a cross to the far post but nobody is at the reception.
A whistle interrupts a goal action
Jérémie Pignard whistles as Gaëtan Laborde had shot on goal. Nübel does not dive and the ball goes into the net.
Tait’s shot goes over
The Rennais project quickly forward and this action ends with a long shot from Flavien Tait without danger for Nübel.
Change of watch for the referee
Jérémie Pignard interrupts the game and goes to the fourth referee to change the watch. Pause for only a few seconds, the game has just resumed.
The first shot of the match is for the Rennais and Gaëtan Laborde who manages to find Nübel’s frame but the Monegasque goalkeeper catches the ball.
Here we go!
It’s off to Louis II between AS Monaco and Stade Rennes for this enticing match on the second day of Ligue 1.
