Rennes keep pressure on top four with fine home win.
79′ [1 – 0] R. Alessandrini
84′ [2 – 0] M. Erdinc
Late goals by Romain Alessandrini and Mevlut Erding saw Rennes to their first victory in three matches as they beat Toulouse in Ligue 1.
Alessandrini struck 11 minutes from time pouncing on a rare error by Toulouse goalkeeper Ali Ahamada before Erding volleyed home five minutes later to confirm victory and leave the visitors winless in three matches.
The win leaves Rennes hot on the heels of fourth-place St Etienne and struggling Marseille in third, while Toulose remain comfortably mid-table, on 31 points.
