Ligue 1: Rennes and Lille back to back, Saint-Etienne dark in Angers


For Rennes and Lille, both engaged on the European scene this week – draw against Celtic Glasgow (1-1) for the Bretons, heavy defeat on the turf of Ajax Amsterdam (3-0) for the second – he was to find the way to victory in Ligue 1.

Always looking for a first success away this season (defeats at Amiens and Reims), the Lille left Roazhon Park with a draw (1-1) despite the goal of his neo-international Jonathan Ikoné (2 selections , 1 goal) on a service from Victor Osimhen (46th).

If his joker Adrien Hunou has cleared the slate, (68th, 1-1), Stade Rennes, after a start of Championship canon (three wins in three games), confirms that he is a little less at ease since late August and still does not win. Julien Stéphan's players go on to win a fourth game without a win in all competitions and miss the opportunity to temporarily take the leader's chair (3rd). The LOSC is sixth before the Lyon-PSG match this Sunday night.

Player: Victor Osimhen

Already a scorer five times this season, Victor Osimhen proves that he can also be a very good provider of balloons. The proof is his altruistic openness to his team-mate Ikoné. Coming to replace Nicolas Pepe numerically – 20 goals and 11 assists in L1 last season -, the Nigerian is the new strongman of the attack of the Mastiffs. He is now involved in 75% of LOSC goals in the league this season (6/8).

The number: 4

For his second stint of the season, Arnaud Nordin winger Arnaud Nordin headed (34th) his first goal in Ligue 1. Inadequate against Angevins who, thanks to the hat-trick of substitute Casimir Ninga (78th, 84th, 88th), earned their fourth win of the season in their stadium Raymond-Kopa (4-1), after Bordeaux (3-1), Metz (3-0) and Dijon (2-0).

The SCO is surprisingly 2nd, the Saint-Etienne de Ghislain Printant points to 17th place with only one success in six games (two draws, three losses).
