The new big performance of Guendouzi, the depth of the workforce of OM and the error of Gomis: Find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff at the end of Marseille-Rennes (2-0).
Guendouzi is already the boss
One of the flagship recruits of Olympique de Marseille, Matteo Guendouzi continues his rise in the strength of the Olympian squad. In the oven and at the mill in the first half, he illustrates the impact and offensive risk-taking requested by Sampaoli. He also came very close to scoring a superb goal in the 29th minute of play when his curled shot hit the bar of Gomis. With 90% successful passes and 5 duels won for 7 contested, Guendouzi muzzled the Rennes midfielder and came out under the ovation of the Vélodrome. Adopted.
This OM has resources
OM’s ability to chain matches and respond to Sampaoli’s demanding system was one of the questions at the start of the season, but it is clear that this OM is built to last. OM’s bench depth is quite impressive and the crazy week of Amine Harit from Bamba Dieng is the perfect example. Without Milik, the Olympians are present and have the weapons to change the course of the matches. With the possibility of launching Harit, Kamara, Rongier, Henrique and Gerson during the match, OM have a luxury bench.

Since the departure of Édouard Mendy from Chelsea last season, Rennes has been plagued by concerns as a goalkeeper. Recruited in reinforcement last season, Alfred Gomis does not bring satisfaction, evidenced by his avoidable error on the goal of Amine Harit. If Rennes spent more than 80 million to strengthen, the absence of a rookie to compete with Gomis in the cages could cost the Bretons a few points this season.
With this new 2-0 defeat, it is the third time in a row that Rennes did not score in a Ligue 1 match. Amorphous at the start of the match, the Rennais cashed in the Marseille waves before briefly coming out of the lead. water, but the lack of edge in front of the goal of Guirassy and Laborde perfectly illustrated all the Rennes shortcomings of the moment. Constantly in the reaction to this match, Bruno Genesio will have to find solutions to avoid the next very complicated weeks. With 5 points in 6 games, Rennes saw a start to the season well below its objectives.
