Rennes woke up at home this Sunday to win by a wide margin against Bordeaux (5-0). The situation is critical for the Girondins.
If the Bordeaux supporters had placed their hopes of waking up their players in Rennes, it was missed. And in large widths. Overtaken by events and reduced to ten at the start of the second half, Vladimir Petkovic’s men sank ever deeper with a tennis score in the bag as they headed home (6-0, 21st day of L1). For Rennes, it’s a fanfare awakening.

Bordeaux will never really believe in Roazhon Park. Led from the 32nd minute on the opener of Martin Terrier (10th goal for him this season, his record in L1 on the same exercise), the visitors did not exist and logically cracked a second time just before the break, on a realization of Benjamin Bourigeaud (2-0, 43rd). But the worst was yet to come for the Girondins.
A red and four goals against Bordeaux
The worst will be a second cataclysmic period started by an expulsion, that of the young Issouf Sissokho sanctioned with a second yellow and returned to the locker room five minutes after returning (50th). A rain of goals will follow with those of Gaëtan Laborde (3-0, 61st) and Adrien Truffert (4-0, 69th) and to complete the Rennes picture, the double express of Serhou Guirassy (89th and 90th + 1). Enough to offer the Breton club a first success in the league after three setbacks.
On the strength of their tenth victory of the season in Ligue 1, Stade Rennais moved up to fourth place. Bordeaux is meanwhile seventeenth and could well find itself as a play-off this evening in the event of a good result for Lorient against Angers.
