Winners of their last four Ligue 1 matches, the Bretons made short work of the Francs-Comtois, scoring four goals in the first period.

“We must also congratulate this Sochaux team for its extraordinary performance since the start of the season, and take a big tip of the hat to this public, who never stopped pushing their players despite the score,” greeted Julien Stéphan . What they did was exceptional!” The Stade Rennes coach said he was “proud and satisfied with the behavior” of his players, who have had four victories in Ligue 1, in addition to their qualification for the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France. Julien Stéphan, however, regretted the injury to Enzo Le Fée at the very start of the match: “It’s muscular, it looks serious, it will last several weeks,” he indicated.
