At Roazhon Park,

Admit that it would have had the mouth.

For its entry into the Europa League Conference, Stade Rennais could have struck a blow Thursday night by paying Tottenham, the favorite favorite of this new competition.

But still weighed down by its defense, a great classic, the Breton club finally conceded a draw (2-2) in front of its excited public.

“Even if I am very satisfied with the face displayed by my team, I am disappointed with the result of course, conceded coach Bruno Genesio after the meeting.

We need two points to be completely satisfied ”.

We only take one point tonight, but we have proven that we can compete with the best.

We must continue in this direction 💪🏼

Thanks to Roazhon Park for this atmosphere 🔥❤️🖤

Perhaps not yet recovered from his rout of Sunday against Reims, the Bretons had yet started in the worst way with a goal against his camp of Loïc Badé.

“But paradoxically, the opening score of Tottenham delivered us, both individually and collectively,” said the Breton coach.

We then saw a combative and envious team, even managing, a rare thing this season, to create opportunities with 18 shots, including four on target, at the end of the meeting.

"To be able to repeat this every three days"

Worst attack in Ligue 1 with Nantes and Monaco, Stade Rennais also managed to be effective thanks to Flavien Tait, author of a superb coiled shot, and Gaëtan Laborde, who opened his counter with the Rouge et Noir in real life fox surfaces.

“We can be proud of our performance, reacted the former Montpellier.

It was really important to us to react after our match on Sunday and I think we did ”.

Against Reims, Bruno Genesio had indeed judged the performance of his team as "the worst by far" since his arrival in March.

Faced with Spurs, very disappointing like his star Harry Kane, this time he saw "the best game of the season by far".

“There were a lot of positive things with forward play, races, variety in our game,” he said.

It's positive, but above all we have found a real team, with a soul ”.

Reassured by the values ​​displayed by his players, Bruno Genesio now hopes that they will never leave them.

“You have to be able to repeat that every three days,” he said.

This is good because it is another big fish which awaits in three days the Rennes with a trip to Marseille, author of a draw also for his debut in the Europa League.
