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.
