Rennes hooked by Fenerbahçe, Rome insures against Helsinki, Betis dominates Ludogorets

What’s after this announcement

For this second part of the matches of the 2nd day of the Europa League, Rennes hosted Fenerbahçe for a match that on paper promised to be interesting and balanced. On the one hand, the training of Bruno Genesio with Amine Gouiri surrounded by Terrier and Bourigeaud. On the other, an experienced Turkish team with Michy Batshuayi in particular on the offensive front. And the start of the match was marked by the domination of Fenerbahçe which collected few chances. Rennes, positioned in the middle, were not particularly able to be more effective up front with fairly isolated strikers. And the two teams went back to the locker room back to back. Logic.

But when they returned from the locker room, the Rennais transformed and the match was totally overwhelmed. Well served by Lovro Majer, Martin Terrier showed up alone against the goalkeeper and quietly opened the scoring (1-0, 52nd). What lights up the stadium and the match. A minute later, the setter became a scorer and the scorer turned into a setter. Terrier perfectly served Majer who eliminated the Turkish goalkeeper and made the break (2-0, 54th). In the process, Rennes had a multitude of opportunities, but they didn’t kill the match. And Fenerbahçe miraculously returned to the game thanks to a jewel from Kahveci. The Turkish striker fired a missile from the left into Mandanda’s cage and gave hope to his team (1-2, 60th). But after a quieter period after the goal, the end of the match was more than tense with the exclusion for an unpleasant gesture by Hamari Troaré (83 °). And what was supposed to happen happened. By dint of pushing, Fenerbahçe got a penalty in the last moments. Ener Valencia transforms him without shaking (2-2, 90 ° + 3). Having been in the lead 2-0, Rennes therefore waste a great opportunity to take the lead of their group alone and thus score a small point.

It also supplies Rome

In the other games of the evening, AS Roma quietly secured the three points against Helsinki (3-0). In superiority for most of the game, José Mourinho’s men had to wait for the second half to finally take the lead. Dybala, Belotti and Pellegrini are the Roman scorers of the evening. Betis Sevilla, without Nabil Fekir, snatched a precious success against Ludogrets (3-2) thanks in particular to the inexhaustible Joaquin (41) still a scorer.

Attractive last season, the Bodo / Glimt club confirmed their good start in C3 by winning against Zurich (2-1). Waiting for the Arsenal match, the Norwegian club is leading their group. For their part, Braga obtained a short but valuable victory against Union Berlin. Same story for Larnaca that surprises Dynamo kyiv (0-1) outside. Finally, in a match full of goals, Union Saint-Gilloise won against Malmo (3-2). Worth noting is the goal of the former Bordeaux Thelin on the side of Malmo.
