Guingamp v Stade Rennes: Preview

Foued Kadir feels Rennes will truly show their capacity for bouncing back when they take on Guingamp on Saturday.

The Ligue 1 match at the Stade du Roudourou will be Rennes' second derby against a regional rival in a week, following Sunday's 3-1 top-flight home defeat to Nantes.

And reflecting on that loss midfielder Kadir, who is on loan at eighth-placed Rennes from Marseille, said: ``It was difficult.

``What is good about this business is that we have the opportunity to make up for it quickly. We have a big game on Saturday.

``This second derby may be a chance for us to be able to forget our poor performance.

``Saturday's game will give us some answers - we'll see the reaction of the group.''

Kadir was on the Marseille bench on the opening weekend of the Ligue 1 season when they beat Guingamp 3-1 away, having scored three goals inside the opening 20 minutes.

The 29-year-old Algeria international expects EAG, who are currently 15th with eight points from eight games, to provide a much different test on Saturday.

Kadir, quoted on www.staderennais.com, said: ``Like Nantes (who are sixth), Guingamp are on the rise among the elite.

``On the first weekend they had suffocated from the beginning of the meeting with Marseille.

``After 20 minutes, Marseille were leading 3-0 and if we could do the same thing, I could ask for nothing better.

``But I think the team that we will face will have nothing to do with that of the first weekend.''
