The Rennes supporters were pale.

While their team had just conceded a second hyper-disputed penalty at Chelsea, the Bretons saw at the same time the impossible happen on the lawn of Sevilla FC, led 2-0 on his home ground by Krasnodar.

Whose fault is it ?

To the former Bordeaux defender Jules Koundé, author of a mammoth match last week against Rennes, but who conceded a free kick and a penalty in a few minutes, without being sent off (a hello to the Rennes side Dalbert…).

Youssef En-Nesyri, author of a double, finally allowed his family to win 3-2 against one of the young of this group E.

With seven points in three games, the Spaniards join Chelsea, easy winner against Rennes, at the top of the group.

The two big guys are six points ahead of the two novices from Rennes and Russia.

With one point in three games, FK Krasnodar and Stade Rennais will undoubtedly fight for third place, qualifying for the Europa League.
