L’Equipe reports that Paris Saint-Germain are not the only ones to be disappointed with their Champions League qualification campaign, with Rennes “unbelieveable”.
The French champions will now face Olympiakos in the last 16, with the latter being the first team to reach the final stage of the competition, following the exit of Olympiakovia at the group stage.
In the end, Rennes’ chances of advancing to the final phase of the tournament are slim, with their closest rival the Italians winning the tie.
“They’re playing against a team that is very good, a team with a lot of firepower, that is in the Champions League and also has great quality in the attack,” Laurent Blanc told France Football.
They are a very good team, they have some great players and we have a great opponent.” “
But the reason is that we have to play against Olympiakou.
They are a very good team, they have some great players and we have a great opponent.”
It remains to be seen how well Rennes will respond to the Olympiakotsa attack, with Olympiakas captain Thiago Silva and Thiago Motta both set to return from injury.
