Rennes claim PSG scalp

Goals either side of the interval gave Rennes a 2-0 win over leaders Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes.

Karl Toko Ekambi broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time before former Parisian Arnaud Kalimuendo added a second (48') to hand Rennes a league double over PSG.

"What was missing? Scoring a goal," said PSG coach Christophe Galtier after seeing his side suffer their first home league defeat for two years. "We had 15 or 17 shots on goal, seven on target. Rennes had 3 shots and scored twice. When you are trailing 2-0, of course people could get the impression, from the outside and the stands but there was no drop in motivation or sign of giving up from my players."

Marseille end Reims run

Marseille inflicted a first defeat in Reims since last September with a 2-1 victory at the Stade Auguste Delaune.

Folarin Balogun's 13th-minute strike was quickly cancelled out by Alexis Sanchez's fine free kick (16'). The Chilean raced through to net the visitors' winner (29') to close the gap on leaders PSG to seven points.

"The team had a good mindset and a good mentality," said Marseille coach Igor Tudor. "At 2-1 up, we stopped playing a little as we tried to preserve the result. But we remained focussed. It's not easy to win here."
