Ligue 1 2022/23 Stats: Lorient Vs Rennes

The above viz depicts the xG map of Theo Le Bris for Lorient against Rennes in Ligue 1 2022/23. Apart from scoring the goal, the player was also extremely efficient in pressing the Rennes right flank and denying their skipper Hamari Traore much success from the flanks, which played a major role in suppressing Rennes from playing from the back. He took two shots and scored one goal, providing the necessary one-goal cushion going into the second half. He ended the game with 0.21 xG and had 0.1 xG per shot.

Rennes will be disappointed with the result and will feel they should have done better. They dominated possession in the first half and had a few chances to take the lead, but could not find the back of the net. They improved in the second half and were able to pull one back, but ultimately it was too little, too late. They will look to bounce back in the coming matches and continue their quest for Europe.
