Rennes vs Auxerre
Stade de la Route-de-Lorient
After back to back losses, Auxerre knew it would be a huge task to gain anything in their trip to Rennes. However, no one would have quite expected the manner in which they were handled on Sunday.
The hosts started off with a bang, as Sulemana scored in the 3rd minute. The rest of the half was rather forgettable and uneventful.
Things heated up quickly in the second half as Gouiri, Terrier, Tait, Abline all got on the scoresheet. Thus, the home side registered a comprehensive 5-0 win.

Bruno Genesio (Rennes coach): “There were almost three thirds. The first, we totally dominated. The second, we were very inferior, we were beaten in the duels, very feverish technically. And then the goal that Amine (Gouiri) will seek is the turning point of the match, it hit them on the head and it gave us confidence. The final score is very expensive paid for this team. We deserve to win but not with such a gap, we take, we are happy! We were very effective this evening, which we had not been against Lorient and Troyes . All the attackers scored, we found in sequence a very interesting game. And behind, Steve (Mandanda)and the defenders did the job.
Jean-Marc Furlan (Auxerre coach): “We are entirely responsible for this heavy defeat. Marseilles and Lyonsgave us two goals but we hadn’t made any mistakes. Today, of the five goals there are five very strong individual errors. Then, we have three or four opportunities, we could have taken advantage of them. If we manage to slam one or two, it changes the face of the match. But if Rennes, Lyon or Lille have players capable of putting it in the background, we cannot […]. I’m not angry. When you see the gap between our budget and the budget of other teams, you shut your mouth. When you make money for players who score goals, it passes […] Now, we have to find how to remobilize the players because the Championship is going to be very long.
