Result: Five-star Rennes hammer sorry Toulouse

Rennes smash five past Toulouse to move into the top half of Ligue 1 on Saturday night.

Rennes smashed five goals past Toulouse in a humiliating defeat in Ligue 1 on Saturday night.

Nelson Oliveira stuck a brace after Romain Alessandrini, Tiemoune Bakayoko and Foued Kadir had put the away side in a comfortable position.

It was the visitors who went in front in the 25th minute after Jonathan Pitroipa and Ali Ahamada clashed going for the same cross, leaving Alessandrini free to slot the ball into an empty net.

Toulouse nearly found an instant response just two minutes later, but Clement Chantome's strike flew just wide of the target.

However, Rennes doubled their lead 10 minutes before the break when Ahamada missed a punch up against Jean II Makoun from a Alessandrini cross, and Bakayoko was on hand to nod the ball into an open goal from all of a yard out.

Rennes put the game to bed just before half time, when Kadir slammed a free kick from the left edge of the box which took a deflection on its way to flying into the back of the net.

The visitors nearly found a fourth instantly following the restart, but Oliveira's shot was narrowly off target.

However, Oliveira did get on the scoresheet with 26 minutes remaining as his half-volley crept through a crowd of bodies from close range.

Oliveira then compounded Toulouse's misery further by adding a fifth goal in the final 10 minutes of the match.

Rennes climb to eighth in Ligue 1 while Toulouse sink to 12th.
