Stade Rennais lost on the lawn of Olympique de Marseille (0-1) this Friday in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France. After the match, Rennes coach Bruno Genesio analyzed his team’s shortcomings and highlighted his opponent’s strengths.
« What I regret is that we lacked calm when we recovered the balls, even if OM are a team that forces you to play quickly through their pressing. We were content to defend well but we gave the ball back too quickly, a bit of application on the crosses. There were few chances, it was a fairly closed match. We had to be efficient, surgical, and they managed to do it. They clear a lot of power, an impression of a steamroller », judged the coach of the Rouge et Noir.
On a series of eight consecutive victories, OM impresses.
