Rémi Garde's men knew a win would guarantee a place for next year's Champions League qualification and make the other results on the night irrelevant.

And Lisandro, with his 59th league goal for Les Gones, put the hosts in front from the penalty spot midway through the first half.

Grenier then repeated his heroics of the previous week when he'd earned a point for Lyon with a stunning free-kick at Nice.

The 22-year-old, who is reportedly an Arsenal target, lined up a free-kick 35 yards out and sent a swerving effort that crashed down, not once, but twice off the crossbar and into the net.

"We came back in the second half and then there was that free-kick from Clément Grenier," said Rennes coach Frédéric Antonetti.
