FC Nantes – Stade Rennais LIVE: The FCN picks up despite pressure from Rennes, follow the match live

68th : With these changes, Nantes put up a solid defense at five. Because Merlin does not take his left flank, but will evolve in the axis, in the middle of the field. A first for him. Kombouaré seems to want to keep this parity score.

66th : Appiah, Kolo Muani and Merlin are preparing to enter the field on the Nantes side. Kolo Muiani enters under an ovation from Beaujoire. This is his penultimate game here.

62nd: LABORDE!! On a corner which lands at the far post, the Rennes striker is alone, but misses the target. What a pity for Rennes. The FCN is doing well on this one.

61st : Nantes finds some colors and regains possession of the ball a little more. But not enough to alert Gomis yet.

58th : On a Nantes corner pushed away. Bukari inherits the ball and attempts a 35m shot… Completely missed. It must be said that it was daring to say the least.

56th: OOHHH the strike from Tait which passes close to the post of Lafont. A high-class action from Rennes, with duplication, a feint… It’s great football! But Rennes is not rewarded for the moment. Nantes is suffering but hold on.

54th : Nantes are very well grouped in their half of the field. Rennes are trying to play along but the Nantes defense is in place.

50th : Like the 1st half, it is Rennes who have possession of the ball.

46th: The stop of Lafont!! Flavien Tait tries a nice cross shot at ground level, well repelled by the Nantes goalkeeper. A 2nd half that starts strong!

I leave you a few minutes my dear Internet users. I will be back shortly.

Despite possession and chances largely in favor of Rennais, FC Nantes came back to the best of times in this match, thanks to a goal from Coulibaly. Stade Rennais had however taken the lead thanks to Flavien Tait. Rennes dominates but does not lead at halftime. Nantes still has resources and proves it by coming back to score tonight.

45th: It’s half-time at La Beaujoire!

44th: BBBBUUUUUTTTT FOR FC NANTES!!! Coulibaly equalizes! On the right, Bukari took advantage of a disagreement between two Rennes players to infiltrate the area. He crosses hard and the ball bounces off Coulibaly, who was in ambush at the far post. The Nantes striker scores with the thigh.

42nd: Terrier’s mule strike!!! Found back in front of the surface, the Rennais hit hard on the ground. Lafont relaxes very well and pushes the ball away.

42nd : FC Nantes is clearly in difficulty since the Rennes goal.

39th : Bourigeaud who finds the outside of Lafont’s post!! Vicious strike from Rennais on an off-center free kick. He surprised everyone by directly attempting the strike. Nantes is in the hard.

36th: The rescue of Coulibaly! On a corner, Terrier takes the lead. But the Malian striker saves in front of his line. The referee finally whistles a fault in favor of the FCN. I don’t personally see. Nantes was hot again.

34th : It was several times that the danger came on the left side of Nantes. Traoré and Bourigeaud have already tried to alert their attackers before this goal from Flavien Tait. For the moment, Rennes is back in front of Nice and is back two points behind Monaco, currently 3rd in the standings.

32nd: BBBBUUUUUTTTT for Stade Rennais!!! Nice center set back, again from Bourigeaud. Tait is on the receiving end and crosses his strike perfectly on the ground. 1-0!

30th : Nantes is starting to suffer. Bourigeaud receives a superb ball from Majer. The Rennes midfielder centers at ground level. But no one to play this ball in the Nantes area.

28th : It’s Terrier’s turn to miss! On a millimeter center back from Bourigeaud, the Rennes striker misses his shot, too crushed.

27th : The public ignites with each intervention of Pallois. The Nantes defender is the darling of Beaujoire. It must be said that he was the author of a high class match on Saturday at the Stade de France, in the final of the Coupe de France.

23rd: Oh Geubbels’ miss! On a cross from Corchia, Coulibaly misses his header. The ball flies to the far post on Geubbels, who shoots himself in the leg and completely misses his shot. Too bad for Nantes!

20th: The rescue again of Castelletto!!! On the corner that follows, Laborde takes the lead. The ball goes to goal but the Nantes defender against this header! It’s starting to heat up!

19th: Oh the strike of Tait!! After a superb feint, he receives the ball in the area, but his shot is blocked by a Nantes defender, Castelletto I believe. First opportunity!

17th : Nantes eats Rennes in most duels! We see it in particular with the great Coulibaly, who very often takes the top of the head on Santamaria.

14th: Things are heating up in front of the Rennes goal! Bukari is on his feet tonight and overflows well on his side before centering back. The Rennes defense clears as best they can and the next shot is pushed back for a corner.

13th : First strike of the match. She comes from Nantes, Bukari. Forced shot, which largely misses the goal kept by Gomis.

12th : Nantes regained control of the ball a few minutes ago. But we are a little bored at the start of the match. Not a hit to report yet.

9th : Fairly quiet game so far. Rennes tries a little more through the wings. But nothing sharp yet.

6th : Good exit from Lafont on a very nice one-touch action from the SRFC. Traoré had tried to alert Laborde in depth. But the Nantes porter had anticipated well.

4th : Rennes plays a lot on the width at the start of the game. Truffert and Traoré are high on the pitch.

2nd : Rennes start with possession of the ball, as expected. Nantes should try to proceed against.

1st: It started at La Beaujoire between FC Nantes and Stade Rennais. After Nice’s victory against Saint-Etienne (4-2), the Rennais have no room for error this evening in the derby!

8:55 p.m. : Nice atmosphere tonight at La Beaujoire. Despite the closure of the Loire stand, the supporters set the mood in another stand of the stadium. The Rennes fans are also present. The visitor parking lot is full.

8:52 p.m .: I’m thinking about it but Andrei Girotto is not even on the FC Nantes match sheet tonight! Surprising, I will try to find out more after the meeting. With Chirivella’s injury and his absence until the end of the season (pubalgia), it is therefore Cyprien and Moutoussamy who will play in midfield.

8:50 p.m .: The big party will not take place this evening at La Beaujoire. The club will not present the Coupe de France trophy to its supporters, in a Beaujoire which is however announced to be sold out… “Big festivities” are planned according to the club, for the last day of the championship, when receiving Saint-Etienne, in ten days.

8:45 p.m. : Point that could be important tonight: the closure of the Tribune Loire, which hosts the ultra group of the Brigade Loire. This is a decision of the FFF Disciplinary Committee, following the use of smoke bombs during the reception of Monaco, in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France. Subscribers to this forum will still be present this evening in the Jules Verne gallery. But the atmosphere will certainly not be the same. Too bad for the show, especially when you see the atmosphere that these supporters created at the Stade de France last Saturday! We think in particular of the magnificent tifo which was deployed that evening.

8:37 p.m. : In Rennes, we generally find the usual team. Santamaria is expected to take up the centre-back position again alongside Omari. In front, Terrier and Laborde. Bourigeaud will distribute in the midfield, with Martin and the Croatian, Majer, author of a double ten days ago against Sainté. His first in Ligue 1.

8:33 p.m. : The composition of FC Nantes and fallen. What surprises in the eleven aligned by Antoine Kombouaré! The coach has chosen a 4-3-3 system, which has rarely been the case this season. Among these surprises: Coulibaly will be at the forefront of the attack. But above all, Simon and Kolo Muani start on the bench. Geubbels and Bukari start tonight. Same thing on the side of the side where Corchia and Fabio are holders. In short, a largely overhauled team. The coach has chosen to put some of his usual starters to rest.

Atmosphere level: we have seen better on the side of FC Nantes, especially for the day after the party, which is increasingly taking on the appearance of a hangover. Between the statements of President Kita against his coach, that of Without forgetting the news of the day which concerns three relatives of FC Nantes who were questioned by the police for several hours on Tuesday as part of a. In short, the atmosphere is no longer really festive at La Jonelière.

Antoine Kombouaré said yesterday at a press conference: he wants his team to finish the championship with 57 points (51 points currently). That’s two wins in the last three games. The Nantes coach intends to keep his players concerned and under pressure at the end of the championship, where the FCN has nothing more to hope for (9th).

On the side of FC Nantes, it’s a whole different story. Antoine Kombouaré and his players may have their minds elsewhere, after last Saturday against Nice. The players know about the rivalry between the two clubs, but will that be enough for the FCN? With only three days to prepare for this match, after a big party this weekend, the Canaries will have to find resources to hope to keep up. Resting on Monday, they returned to training only on Tuesday. Will the Cup euphoria last?

Derby between two enemies tonight in Nantes. Rennes, 4th from , must absolutely win to catch up with AS Monaco, which does not stop at the end of the season. Especially since Stade Rennais will host OM on Saturday evening, in a match that could well be decisive for 2nd place. Bruno Genesio’s team no longer has the right to make mistakes, especially after their defeats at home to Monaco, then to Strasbourg. The Red and Blacks regained their colors at home by beating two teams at the bottom of the table: Lorient and Saint-Etienne (5-0 and 2-0). The derby promises to be crucial for the Bretons in their race for Europe.

Boooooooonnnnnnnnight to all! I am delighted to see you again on this Wednesday evening, live from the Beaujoire! Place for the derby between Nantes and Rennes tonight. Late match of the 36th day of Ligue 1. Kick-off at 9 p.m.: waiting, I’m here to make you live the pre-match. And there are things to say! I’ll meet you at 8:30 p.m.
