How did the Bretons manage not to win this match against the Girondins?

Better to win six times 1 to 0, rather than once 6-0. This famous coaching maxim must still resonate a little more in the mind of Bruno Genesio this Sunday after the very frustrating draw of his Stade Rennais against the Girondins de Bordeaux at Matmut Atlantique (1-1) during the 8th day, only a few days after the spanking given to Clermont. The Breton coach may indeed ask himself for several hours, how his team did not win against the Navy and White as it has dominated the debates?

Already, the former OL coach cannot pretend that his players had not fallen on a goalkeeper in a state of grace! “Costil had a good match,” sighs, sibylline, Genesio. We can even go much further, the Bordeaux goalkeeper had a huge match and an exceptional first half multiplying the parades in front of Tait, Bourigeaud or even Laborde. Hands, feet. From afar, up close. We had the right to the whole panoply. “At the break, we must already lead by a minimum of two goals, plague the Breton coach, after that continues with still clear opportunities and even in added time, we have the match point to win.” Finally, Benoit Costil will yield only once in the 56th minute on a Traoré cross taken in the empty goal by his former teammate at the Girondins, Gaëtan Laborde.

“This remains insufficient” despite the content

But if the Rennes have converted only one of their 18 shots (including 8 on target), it is also “for lack of aggressiveness in the last gesture or poor placements in front of goal on centers”, explains the Breton coach. How many times has the ball passed in front of the goal without a Breton attacker cutting the path?

And of course when it goes like that, everyone now knows the storyline. A badly cleared corner, a small mess with control of the belly of a player, a strike from a former defender of the left club while he is right-handed, a ball which passes through a forest of legs with a small deflection of nothing at all to deceive the goalkeeper and you have the Bordeaux equalizer of Edson Mexer in the 88th minute of play. It’s called “the penalty on stroke of fate”, just slips Genesio.

“It’s very frustrating with all the opportunities we had, admits midfielder Flavien Tait, it’s not a defeat on form since we take a point in Bordeaux but on substance, of course that I live it like a defeat! “Surely thinking back to that last strike he saw flee the frame when he was alone at the entrance to the box. One more.

So obviously, the Bretons will also be able to retain the very good content of their match which proves that they are “on the right track” as Bruno Genesio reminds us, but in the end, “that remains insufficient”. Stade Rennais is still stuck in the second half of the table after a more than complicated start to the championship with two wins, three draws and three defeats. It’s weak for a candidate for Europe

And it is PSG which is preparing to show up at Roazhon Park next Sunday (1 p.m.). This time, it will be necessary “to be much more killers in the two surfaces” insists Flavien Tait because at a given moment, football, “it is not a matter of system or anything because it does not play there. when you have to put it at the bottom, ”concludes Bruno Genesio angrily. Difficult to prove him wrong this Sunday.
