Football / 13th day Ligue 1 Uber Eats: salty addition for MHSC in Rennes

Despite the dismissal of Olivier Dall’Oglio, Montpellier still couldn’t do it. For his second match on the bench, Romain Pitau wanted to provide security with a five-man defense but had to do without Estève, Mavididi, Wahi (suspended) and Omlin (injured), the latter replaced by the young Chamber in prisons Hérault . But facing a very good Rennes team, the mission was too complicated.

From a corner, Terrier opened the scoring with a header (15th, 1-0). Kalimuendo, outside the area, adjusted a strike that the young Kamara could not stop (23rd, 2-0). Rennes largely dominated a meeting in which Montpellier was rarely dangerous. And if the gap was wider – a save from Cozza, a crossbar, a goal disallowed for offside – Gouiri sealed the fate of the game with a superb curling shot (83rd, 3-0). Rennes made it a record 15 wins in all competitions as Montpellier posted a disappointing 5th straight defeat.
