Vanderson decisive, Meling struggling

The overactivity of Vanderson, the surgical ASM and the Rennes defenders in difficulty, discover the tops and flops of this Stade Rennais – AS Monaco (2-3).


Vanderson proactive
He is the great architect of the Monegasque 3-2 victory on the lawn of Stade Rennais this Friday evening. Very active on his right side at the start of the match, Vanderson rewarded himself for his activity with a goal after a beautifully distilled ball by Golovin and a duel won over Meling. After the goal of equalization, it allows that of the break. The 20-year-old Brazilian assisted on Boadu’s third goal. A full game.

Monaco has always believed in it
We can congratulate the Monegasque desire during this meeting. A first strike after 67 seconds of play, but above all a desire to play quickly forward despite the opening of the fast score (3rd). An overflowing energy that allowed ASM to quickly equalize (12th), before scoring two goals in the second half. Three goals from four shots on target, out of 12 attempts, Monaco was surgical.

The Rennes pair take it all
Some Rennes players shined in this match, especially in midfield. Starting with Flavien Tait. In the 3rd minute, he emerges perfectly to allow his team to open the scoring. Crazy stats for him: nine balls recovered, three interceptions, 75% of duels won and above all eight faults suffered. Next to him, Jonas Martin is not left out either. The first Rennes returner succeeded in 94% of his passes and scratched 13 balls, a match record.

Football total et fair-play
A match that was a pleasure to see, in every sense of the word. 67 seconds to see the first shot. Three minutes to see the first goal. A match started on the hats of wheels with seven shots in the first 25 minutes. A pace which then dropped a little, especially in the second half with Rennes lost on the pitch but a pleasant meeting overall. Note here the fair play and the good spirit of the two teams, with only four warnings in total. A match well led by Stéphanie Frappart.


Meling outdated
It would be dishonest to hold the Norwegian solely responsible as it was the defensive left side of Stade Rennais which was dominated as a whole. It would also be unfair not to say that in the system put in place by Bruno Genesio, Meling often finds himself very high, giving way to a three-man defense, even in midfield, but he remains the main responsible for the overactivity of Monaco in the right hallway. Meling especially loses his one against one against Vanderson, allowing the latter to equalize. Lack of chest and power, which was fatal on this action. No wonder he comes out early in this game. Replaced at the 57th by Truffert.

Laborde too discreet
A day without for the Stade Rennais striker. He certainly worked for the collective, but was never found in a good position in front. Only 39 balls touched for him in total during this match and 13 balls lost. No shot attempted for the center forward of Stade Rennais. They are only three holders in this case (Laborde, Meling, Omari). The former MHSC was logically replaced in the 71st by Guirassy, ​​who tried his luck three times in 20 minutes.

Omari in trouble
Yet serious in recent weeks, Omari has been overtaken by his youth on this match. He, the right-hander, is aligned on the left today, alongside Santamaria, a training midfielder, and it shows. On the second Monegasque goal, Omari was too easily tricked into a duel by Ber Yedder, before letting the French striker slip away alone in front of the goal. On the third Monegasque goal, the young French defender is too wait-and-see and lets Boadu appear behind his back. He is sanctioned with a yellow card in the 85th minute for a late tackle on Volland.
