Rennes misses the boat, Toulouse delivers!

Find the results of the matches from this early evening for the representatives of French football in the Europa League.

After Racing Club de Lens and Paris Saint-Germain, who secured a European spring a little earlier in the week, it was the French representatives in the Europa League who took the stage this Thursday for the 6th and final day of the group stage of the competition.

Rennes falls from above

The best poster pitted Stade Rennais against Villarreal. Leader of its group, the Breton club had the opportunity to directly punch its ticket for the round of 16 of this C3. To do this, he had to avoid a setback against the yellow submarine, his first pursuer in this group. A mission that Julien Stéphan’s team did not manage to accomplish. Too feverish defensively, the Rennes lost at the end of a frustrating match (2-3). They even always chased the score, Assignon (37th) and Blas (79th) responding to the achievements of Moreno (36th), Akhomach (63rd) and Parejo, author of the victorious goal (80th). Rennes therefore finished second in their group and will have to go through the round of 16 box.

Toulouse does the job

For its part, Toulouse also had to ensure the union minimum against Linz ASK, the bottom of its group. A setback could expose Téfécé, which was in the sights of Union Saint-Gilloise for qualification. If the possibility of being transferred to the Conference League existed, Toulouse avoided this scenario and completed its ticket well by reaping a sluggish success (2-1). Dallinga found the net again (54th), but it was Suazo who took on the role of savior (83rd) after Ljubicic’s equalizer (61st).
