Stade Rennais battled hard, but were overcome by Evian Thonon Gaillard in the closing stages of their Ligue 1 clash.
Evian Thonon Gaillard defeated Stade Rennais in a hugely exciting Ligue 1 battle from start to finish.
The home side began the match at lightning speed, and forced Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik into an own goal before even two minutes had passed.
Rennes soon woke up though, and equalised through Julien Feret.
Again Evian TG took the lead with a strike from Kevin Berigaud, and again they were pegged back by the visitors, who scored through John Boye.
However, Rennes ran out of steam in the second half, and Milos Ninkovic and Yannick Sagbo scored late goals for the hosts to secure victory.
