Tops / Flops Sevilla FC-Rennes: Koundé on fire, Rennes suffocated


The impressive performance of Koundé, an almost invincible Gomis or even a Rennes team that took the water: find the Tops and Flops of the match between Sevilla FC and Rennes (1-0).  


Koundé at the top

Capitalized service for Jules Koundé.

The French central defender of Sevilla impressed this Wednesday evening both defensively and offensively in the 1-0 victory against Rennes on the occasion of this second meeting of the group stage of the Champions League.

Perfect raises, sublime transversal ... But also very solid in defense, especially against Martin Terrier where he stops him by making a small bridge (53rd).

The 21-year-old defender has done it all.

He was even very dangerous and almost scored on several occasions: a very powerful long shot (28th) repelled by the keeper, a header saved on the line (29th), another header that goes over (74th).

An XXL performance that can soon open the doors of the France team if he does it again.

The perseverance of the Sevilla attack

The Sevillian attackers tried a lot, a lot.

23 times including 10 shots on target to be precise.

Munir, Lucas Ocampos, De Jong but also Diego Carlos and Koundé all tried their luck.

After being disgusted in the first half by an excellent Alfred Gomis, they insisted and ended up cracking the Rennes defense.

Luuk de Jong offered the victory to Sevilla on a beautiful strike with the flat of the foot after the locker room (55th).

They were not far from worsening the score with the bar of Jordan (79th) and the many other attempts.

Gomis almost unbeatable

Rennes goalkeeper Alfred Gomis was simply excellent.

Author of six parades, the Senegalese kept the Rennes ship afloat throughout the match.

It was thanks to him that the score was goalless at the break.

The goalkeeper saved his people on several occasions, notably on the sublime volley from Munir deflected on the bar (6th) or on the attempt of Diego Carlos (24th), Ocampos (26th) and Koundé (28th).

He and his team ended up giving in in the second half but Gomis saved his team from sinking and conceding more goals.


Rennes completely suffocated

Julien Stéphan's players have endured numerous Sevillian assaults without ever being able to fight.

They suffered tremendously throughout the meeting.

Largely superior, Sevilla went through the offensive phases and stifled the Breton club, which is participating in its very first Champions League.

An impotent Rennes attack

Like Marseille on Tuesday night against Manchester City, Rennes was able to realize the high level of the C1.

Result, the Rennes have only shot twice.

Two shots on target all the same signed Terrier (33rd) and Grenier on free kick (69th).

But Seville goalkeeper Bono was on it.

Otherwise, the visitors spent their entire game defending.

2 - Rennes have only attempted 2 shots against Sevilla, the lowest total for a team in a Champions League game this season alongside Marseille v Manchester City last night.

In addition to the absence of Camavinga, Nzonzi, Tait and Maouassa, two Rennes players were injured during the game.

They are Daniele Rugani at the start of the match (14th) and Benjamin Bourigeaud (49th).

Which did not help Rennes.

Result, with its many absentees and injuries, Stade Rennais could not fight.
