Always red lantern of Ligue 1, AS Saint-Etienne suffered a real rout against a Stade Rennais (0-5) in full success. Martin Terrier scored a hat-trick, which puts his team back in second place in the standings.
New Sunday of suffering for AS Saint-Etienne. Already good last in Ligue 1, the Greens took the broth against Stade Rennais (0-5), in a Geoffroy-Guichard stadium still half empty (the two turns were still suspended), and who once again claimed the head of the club officers.
On the field, in this gloomy atmosphere, Claude Puel’s men managed an honorable start to the match, but the match quickly turned to a series of game facts: a goal logically denied to Wahbi Khazri for offside (18th) , another logically granted by the VAR to Martin Terrier (0-1, 22nd). And on another action where Khazri was offside, Mr. Léonard left the advantage to Rennais, who doubled the bet by the same Terrier, with a pretty Madjer (0-2, 28th). Before the break, on another movement initiated by the talented Lovro Majer, Lorenz Assignon stumbled twice on Etienne Green, but the ball ended up entering a CSC of Yvann Maçon (0-3, 45th).
45th: Incredible. When nothing goes right…
Etienne Green signs two superb parades. But the second sends the ball to the face of Yvann Maçon. The ball ends its course in our nets.

Majer like Messi!
Returning from the locker room, Terrier offered himself a hat-trick (0-4, 48th) on a new service from Majer author of a hat-trick of assists… like Lionel Messi on the same lawn a week ago. And while the Bretons brought in some young people, Chimuanya Ugochukwu, 17, concluded the festival for his team (0-5, 83rd).
After the defeat against Lille (1-2) on Wednesday, Rennes recovered perfectly and took second place in Ligue 1 at the expense of Marseille. In contrast to the standings, Saint-Etienne sinks further after this week to three defeats in three games.
