Paris vs Rennes

Stade Rennais in short

Founded in 1901, Stade Rennais Football Club are the pride and joy of Rennes, the capital of the Brittany region. Nicolas Holveck is the President of the club since March 18th, 2020. On March 4th, 2021, the club revealed the name of its new coach: Bruno Genesio, former coach of Olympique Lyonnais between 2015 and 2019. In terms of honours, Stade Rennais have succeeded in French Cup in three occasions, in 1965, 1971 and 2019, and have taken part in two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup competitions, three UEFA Cups, one UEFA Europe League and one Champions League.

After a convincing 2019-20 season, the club finished 3rd in the ranking, behind Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain. Qualified for 2020-21 Champions League group stage, the club was part of Group E, alongside Chelsea, Séville and Krasnodar.

Though both sides have the greatest respect for each other and the match is always played in the right spirit, the famous Breton derby between Stade Rennais and FC Nantes arouses great passion and a carnival atmosphere. Adding a little spice to the fixture is the city of Nantes’ long historical association with Brittany. Once the administrative seat of the region, Nantes has not formed part of it since the 1950s, while Rennes is now Brittany’s sole official capital.

The 2020/21 season of Rennes was satisfying. The players qualified for Europa League thanks to their 6th position in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, above Montpellier and Lens.

The best Rennes' performance in Europe is a Europa League round of 16 (Vs Arsenal in 2019).
