The Breton technician appreciated the defensive performance of Rennes, who beat Dijon (2-0) in Ligue 1.
Julien Stéphan (Rennes coach, after the victory against Dijon 2-0): "We must praise the quality of what Dijon has proposed. They put us in trouble. We had not completely recovered from the Lyon match and the debauchery of energy, so we had a little less intensity and we had technical waste, they did not need to many run to recover the ball.
It gave us a first half-time but we knew that time was playing for us. We just did not panic, put some things back at half-time and then be effective on our highlights and that's what we managed to do. It rocked the match. We could have taken shelter earlier but the last half hour I liked, much convinced. There is the satisfaction of having chained a second game without taking a goal, it is important to be solid. "
