The party that closed the curtain on the 30s of the French Cup left us, in addition to Sochaux’s surprise when they beat Saint-Étienne, Angers’s victory over Rennes. Those of Moulin they were imposed after making 20 perfect minutes that left the match almost sentenced. Fulgini, with a doublet, was erected as the great figure of a quite gray game in general lines.
Without being strictly a derby, since Angers it’s not in Brittany, but in the Blonde, Angers-Rennes has been one of the games with the greatest regional rivalry in recent years. Stephan, who already knows what it is to win the tournament, since he did it in 2019 against PSG, decided to rotate and left some important players on the bench. Camavinga was not from the game, as well as Guirassy or Truffert.
In a blink of an eye, Angers had sentenced the match. For the first 20 minutes, Moulin’s were an insurmountable roller for a Rennes that, without Camavinga and N’Zonzi, was a twilight in midfield. Fulgini, playmaker who when he was a winger was wanted by the Barcelona, took advantage of a large Manceau on the left to head 1-0.
Ten minutes later, Ali-Cho, first player of the year 2004 to debut in the five big leagues, performed a great action and attended Capelle, who fell in the area after a stomp from Da Silva. The referee signaled a penalty and Fulgini did not forgive from 11 meters. The Rennes, from 2-0, he had possession of the ball, but it hardly generated danger, except for some hospitalization of Tissue on the left, although quite ineffective in the last third.
Rennes reacted in the second half and came out with a very different face to which the party had started. Tissue, omnipresent throughout the match, he spun again the best occasions of the Bretons, assisting Guirassy brilliantly in the 2-1 that reduced distances. With 2-1, Rennes had chances to draw, but his poor decision making in the final meters put the victory of the Angers.
