In the 84th minute of tonight’s Champions League tie against Chelsea, Rennes won themselves some slight hope of upsetting the Blues when they equalised from a corner.
Benjamin Bourigeaud delivered a dangerous out-swinging corner from the left-flank, the ball was just out of Thiago Silva’s reach despite the Brazilian’s best efforts.
That left Serhou Guirassy free to head the ball into the back of the net with a bullet effort into the top corner.

It would’ve been a devastating pill for the Blues to swallow if this stopped them from securing their spot in the knockout stages, but Olivier Giroud popped up with a winner.
