Five days after their defeat against Monaco at Roazhon Park (2-3), Stade Rennais travels to Strasbourg, another important meeting in the race for the podium. Weakened by their result against Monaco, the Rennais must resume their march forward to maintain an advantage over the competition.
To do this, Bruno Genesio can count on the return of Nayef Aguerd, who was ill last week. On the Strasbourg side, Kevin Gameiro was uncertain, he is in the group without the assurance of seeing him start the game.
