Result: Late Ola Toivonen penalty sees Rennes past Caen

Caen are dealt an unlucky blow as Ola Toivonen notches a last-minute penalty to hand Rennes a 1-0 victory over Patrice Garande's side in Ligue 1 this evening.

Ola Toivonen's last-minute penalty has handed Rennes a late 1-0 victory over Caen in Ligue 1 this evening.

Rennes' French midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure vies for the ball with Caen's French forward Lenny Nangis during the French L1 football match between Caen (SM Caen) and Stade Rennais (SRFC) on August 30, 2014

An unlucky Caen side should have found themselves ahead in the opening stages of the game as Bengali-Fode Koita saw his header crash against the crossbar.

Herve Bazile was next in for the visitors in a lively first half, but he could not find the target as he fired wide of the post having found himself in space in the box.

Rennes had to rely on goalkeeper Benoit Costil throughout the second half, with the stopper pulling off two fine saves to deny Jean Calve and Lenny Nangis.

A dominant Caen side went into the final few minutes looking to grab all three points, but the game was flipped on its head when Jordan Adeoti brought down Philipp Hosiner in the box, leaving Toivonen to crash home from 12 yards and steal the winning goal two minutes from time.
