Paris (AFP) – Firmin Mubele struck a fine late equaliser as Rennes held Lyon to a 1-1 draw in Ligue 1 on Sunday despite playing 85 minutes with 10 men.
Ramy Bensebaini was sent off with just five minutes played at Roazhon Park after handling Sergi Darder’s goal-bound shot.
Rennes goalkeeper Benoit Costil diverted Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty onto the post, although Lyon eventually opened the scoring through Maxwel Cornet on 52 minutes.
But substitute Mubele lashed in from the edge of the area nine minutes from time, and Rennes nearly snatched all three points as Sanjin Prcic fired into the side netting after following up his initial strike.
Lyon are fourth in the table, 13 points behind third-placed Nice who host Bordeaux later on Sunday, with eight games left to play while Rennes remain ninth.
