Nantes loses to Rennes before returning to PSG for the Champions Trophy

Victory for Stade Rennes. Bruno Genesio’s players got the better of Nantes this Wednesday, in a friendly, in Saint-Nazaire. Success 1-0 thanks to a goal signed Serhou Guirassy at the start of the second period for the Rouge et Noir. “We saw very good things, especially during 1h10 of play. We saw good positions, a defensive discipline which I really liked, whether to press high or in the defensive withdrawal of the attackers. I think we should have scored more goals in the first half to validate our highlights“, analyzes Genesio, when his Nantes counterpart, Antoine Kombouaré, is delighted to have seen his players compete “a tough match against a good opponent. It’s good because that’s what awaits us against PSG“, notes the Kanak, remembering that “his” Canaries will challenge PSG on Sunday, in Tel Aviv, on behalf of the Champions Trophy. “It’s interesting. I learned a lot of lessons from this game“, he swears.

If Nantes will officially start their season on their next outing, Rennes will face Aston Villa on Saturday at Roazhon Park (6 p.m.), again in a friendly.
