ATLETICO DE MADRID 3 - RENNES 1 | EUROPA LEAGUE RESULT - GROUP I

ATLETICO DE MADRID finished top of their EUROPA LEAGUE Group I after defeating French Club RENNES 3 - 1. The French side came with more reserves than regular players & thus the match was not as intense for the locals as expected, & thankfully so.

Low attending crowd of around 13,000 supporters that voiced their discontent with the Club, the team,  & especially Coach Manzano with chants of "leave the Club". This created an unpleasant atmosphere which persisted all game & highlighted the tense moments that the Spanish Football Club is experiencing. 

The play overall was sloppy & irregular with Adrian & Diego highlighting themselves above the rest.

Rennes started well hitting the bar in the 16th min as Atletico looked nervous in front of their "hostile" home fans. The tension eased a bit when Adrian won a penalty in the 37th min which FALCAO transformed. The second for Atletico came via defender DOMINGUEZ with his 42 nd min header from a Diego free-kick.

The second half was scrappy & Atletico goalkeeper Asenjo had to make some important saves, until TURAN scored the third for Atletico with a nice drive in the 79th min. The French team managed a consolation goal in the 86th min via MANDJECK with Atletico a bit relaxed.

In the end a victory for Atletico & top Group spot which enables that they do not get paired with the likes of Manchester City & United & other "fall-out" Champions League Clubs for the next phase of the competition.
