Mavididi, veni, vidi, vici After the great speeches of the week, Stade Rennes had to come to action on the lawn of Mosson. It was a question of being less kind, sharper and above all of putting more verticality to abolish a sterile possession game. The Bretons' opening minutes went in this direction, with Doku entering the box twice behind Cozza's back and bringing in Omlin, also decisive on a Guirassy heel a few minutes later. A good quarter of an hour from Rennes, then a tumble caused by Mavididi, double scorer in the space of ten minutes. Montpellier initially relies on his favorite weapon, Savanier dropping a free kick, in the back of a naive Rennes defense, taken over by the former Juve (1-0, 17th)

. The latter then took advantage of a bad pass from Martin and a ball blocked by Aguerd to cold the central hinge of the visitors before deceiving Gomis a second time (2-0, 27 '). Two shots, two goals, and a pattern that is repeated week after week for Stéphan's gang, domineering, but still so little inspired in the last few meters. For the greatest pleasure of Montpellier.
The hunt for 5th place Better in its sneakers for several weeks, the MHSC does not force too much to manage its advantage and is content to rely on Rennes' weaknesses, that is to say the defensive transitions, to try to kill the suspense. The dream opportunity arrives five minutes after the Lemons, when the untenable Mavididi pushes Traoré to the fault in the area to offer a penalty to Savanier, who spoils the gift by targeting the clouds (51st). Miracle for the Reds and Blacks, the game is not over. But the visitors fail to take advantage of this boost to genuinely worry Omlin, still impeccable in front of Doku. In search of his first goal in Rennes, the 18-year-old Belgian international signs a nice defensive return to shine, without this erasing his approximations and his bad choices in the Hérault camp. A knee injury on each side later (Savanier and Da Silva), Montpellier misses three 3-0 balls with Mavididi and Laborde, which awaken the good reflexes of Gomis (62nd). As a result, the flocks of Der Zakarian play at scare each other. A bit more dashing thanks to its entrants, Rennes finally wavers the penultimate defense of Ligue 1. Well found by a superb pass from Grenier, Guirassy eliminates Omlin and takes his time to score with the help of the post (2- 1, 78e). Montpellier retreats, but does not break to hold a third success in a row, which allows it to catch up with its opponent of the day in the standings. This time, Stade Rennes' fifth place is (really) hanging by a thread.
