On Saturday, Stade Rennais beat Bordeaux and moved on to the round of 16 in the Coupe de France. At the Matmut Atlantique, the Red and Black won by a score of 2-1 over Bordeaux.
In the 23rd minute, Rennais’s first goal was scored by Bourigeaud. On a great through ball from Theate, the playmaker grabs the ball perfectly and passes it to Bourigeaud with great control.
Right before the break, Girondins tried one last attack. Pirringuel started the play, and Elis passed the ball to Maja, who tricked Mandanda to tie the score at 1-1.
In the 54th minute, Stade Rennais got back in front of the game. After Traoré and Bourigeaud did some good work in the penalty area, the ball went back to Doku. The Belgian went for a strike, but Bokele blocked it, which fooled Straczek.
In the 60th minute, Bokele was sent off for making an awkward move and stepping on Tait’s ankle with his foot.
In the 74th minute, Kamaldeen Sulemana, a winger, took the place of Jeremy Doku.
On January 11, Stade Rennais will play Clermont Foot in Ligue 1.
