The Rennais will have to play without their nugget.

Left for Seville on Tuesday, Julien Stéphan's players will have to do without Eduardo Camavinga.

The number 10 of Stade Rennais did not get on the plane, which left at the beginning of the afternoon from Rennes airport, reports



Absent from the group, the very young French international will not play the second Champions League match in the history of his club, scheduled for Wednesday at 9 p.m. against Sevilla FC.

If the club has not communicated the reason for this absence, some sources evoke an embarrassment caused by a crutch received during the defeat against Angers on Friday night.

The one who turns 18 in November could be replaced by the experienced Clément Grenier, who remained on the bench in the inaugural draw conceded against the Russians in Krasnodar.

Undoubtedly tired by an intense start to the season where he had his first tenure in blue, Eduardo Camavinga has delivered several lackluster performances in recent weeks.

He is not the only one and his team remain on a series of two draws and a defeat in the league, to which must be added an annoying draw against Krasnodar in the Champions League.

“We have to protect him,” his coach has often hammered in recent months.
