It took Rennes some time to come good last season, but they finished the campaign with silverware as they defeated Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France final. As a result, they will once again have the opportunity to experience European football after terrific showings against the likes of Arsenal and Real Betis last season. Julien Stephan remains in charge, and it was under his hand that Rennes experienced a dramatic upsurge in their form in the latter half of last season. That they finished 10th was largely on him. Under Stephan, Rennes played an exciting brand of football that resulted in them scoring 55 goals over the course of the season. True, they faded towards the end, but it is clear he will be expansive if possible. Unfortunately for the Breton side, they lost one of their most exciting talents in the summer as Hatem Ben Arfa elected not to renew his contract with the club. They also saw long-time midfield servant Benjamin Andre leave for Lille and Mexer depart for Bordeaux, yet both are infinitely more replaceable than the mercurial playmaker. Flavien Tait, who has arrived from Angers, has the unenviable task of taking up the baton, and the 26-year-old appears a good choice, having flown under the radar despite strong showings in recent seasons. Rennes also moved to complete the addition of M’Baye Niang, giving them a strong attacking line up on paper, though it remains unclear if they will be able to retain winger Ismaila Sarr until the end of the transfer window. Big changes have not been made otherwise, with progress somewhat slow in the transfer market. Veteran defender Jeremy Morel has arrived at the club but Rennes fans might want to see more reinforcement in the middle of the defence, while no attempt to replace the influential Andre has been made at all yet. As such, there is a feeling that Rennes go into this season rather incomplete, but that did not stop them finishing last season well.

Target


Rennes should be fighting for a top six spot. Certainly, they should achieve better than the 10th they made last season.

Season Review
2018/2019

№10: Stade Rennais

Rennes had a very mixed campaign, which is reflected on the fact that they finished 10th in the league but were still somewhat satisfied by what they had achieved over the course of the season, notably their come-from-behind Coupe de France final victory over Paris Saint-Germain. It was a campaign of notable highs for the Breton side, with that display against PSG and a 3-1 Europa League first-leg win over Arsenal the highlights. However, they finished in their lowest league position for five years and out of the top nine for just the third time since 2003. Sabri Lamouchi started the season in charge but was jettisoned after a 4-1 home defeat by Strasbourg that left Rennes 14th. Julien Stephan, who the club had rejected an approach from Monaco for, stepped up initially as interim boss but proved so successful he was kept on until the end of the campaign. Not only did he instigate an immediate improvement in the team that lifted them to ninth thanks to three successive league wins, he also helped them into the knockout stages of the Europa League, where they would win praise for their fearless approach. There was not, however, universal love for Stephan, who ultimately fell out with Hatem Ben Arfa as things got tougher towards the end of the campaign. By this point the football was not so pleasing, but with the Coupe de France in the bag their goal was ultimately achieved, nevertheless, a nine-game winless streak in Le Championnat was disappointing. Ben Arfa was a strength of the club but will surely go in the summer after his comments, while holding onto loan addition Mbaye Niang, who top scored with 11 goals will also be tough. His form was, however, a tough erratic. A lack of consistency was a feature of Rennes’ attack throughout the campaign, with it sparkling at its best but frustrating otherwise. Such terms could easily be used to describe the seasons of both Ismaila Sarr and Benjamin Bourigeaud, as well as Adrien Hunou, who weighed in well off the bench. Long-term injury problems did not help Rennes, who only had Sarr play 35 times or more. Nevertheless, there is promise for the future in their academy, with Eduardo Camavinga becoming their youngest player and impressing immensely in midfield. James Lea Siliki also appears ready for a greater role. Stalwart centre-back Mexer is on his way, while the club are seeking a new goalkeeper to give them a fresh push next term.
