Painful evening for Doku and Theate

Red Devils Jeremy Doku and Arthur Theate have not had the best evening with their club Rennes in Ligue 1. Against Clermont Foot, they saw two teammates sent off with red and suffered a 2-1 defeat in the very last minute.

Doku and Theate both started the game as basic players, but could not prevent the opening goal of home team Clermont. More than fifteen minutes before the end, Rennes straightened out the lopsided situation via a goal from Arnaud Kalimuendo (74.). Then it handed over the game in quick succession. After two red cards in five minutes for Benjamin Bourigeaud and Warmed Omari, it had to continue with nine. To make matters worse, Johan Gastien (90.+5) shot Clermont to an ultimate victory. Doku was taken to shore on the hour mark. Maximiliano Caufriez played a full game for the home team, but Brandon Baiye remained on the bench.

Rennes is fourth in Ligue 1 after eighteen match days, one place and one point ahead of Philippe Clement’s Monaco, which has played one game less.
