Dynamo Kiev-Rennes: 3-1
Like Girondins de Bordeaux, Stade Rennais will need a miracle to climb the sixth finals of the Europa League. Dominated in large widths of Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine (3-1) at RMC Sport, Sabri Lamouchi's men rarely put the danger to the opposing surface. A huge opportunity missed by Ismaïla Sarr (54) while the score was still 1-0 in favor of the Ukrainians could have enabled Rennes to turn the steam. But the attacker's point of post failed to cross the opposite line and Dynamo Kiev doubled what was less than 15 minutes later via Mykolenko (2-0, 68th). ). Shapalenko then got his club to fly outside the scoreboard before Siebatcheu reduced the gap late (92).

For OM there will be even more calculations for the next day. The finalist of the competition entered Italy, Lazio (2-1), and has already been eliminated. Rudi Garcia had made changes to wake up a team stuck in a negative spiral. But here, the various remedies have not been enough to erase the misfortunes that OM has, especially at the defensive level. In terms of offensive animation, the entrance to Dimitri Payet did not provide enough energy, more than Thauvin's goal really gave his teammates (60) hope, could not accelerate in his wake after the Parolo (45) and Correa (55) goals for Lazio. Defeated for the fourth time in a row, in all competitions, OM now has Ligue 1 as the only horizon.
Bordeaux-Zenith St. Petersburg: 1-1
Hanged by Zénith Saint-Petersburg (1-1), the Girondines are very close to the exit. Dominated three times to start, Bordeaux had taken the match at the right end to Atlantic Matmut and finally thought its first success in the competition. Ricardo's men tried to reward themselves by getting a penalty converted by François Kamano first half (32th). But the second action coincided with the beginning of their problems. Favorite to Jimmy Briand to start this meeting, Andres Cornelius left his partners in the break because of injury. And the Russians stopped equalizing 20 minutes from the end of the rule of Zabolotny (72th). Irreproachable in commitment and state of mind, the Girondines operated with all their power without ever finding the fault.
