While Stade Rennais pulverized Lorient during the derby on Sunday (5-0), several fire engines were present near a stand following the discovery of a crack in the concrete of a barrier weighing several tons. An event that would have challenged several spectators, while one of them would have directly alerted the stewards, according to RMC Sports.
In a press release relayed by the media, Stade Rennais assures that after an expertise carried out on Monday, “there was never any risk of the stand collapsing. The crack will still require reinforcement. Another expertise is scheduled for Tuesday to define the intervention in more detail. It won’t be a big job. The reinforcement of the structure will be done in the week. There is no danger for the reception of the public on Saturday evening”while the SRFC will host Saint-Etienne on the 35th day of Ligue 1.
