Hamari Traore ends 37-month Rennes wait with Athletico Marseille stunner

Hamari Traore scored his first Rennes goal with a first-half stunner in Sunday’s 2-0 French Cup win over Athletico Marseille, in the process ending his 37-month wait to find the back of the net for Les Rennais.

Twentythree minutes into the game, the Malian gave Julien Stephan’s men the lead at Stade La Martine with a spectacular effort.

The 27-year-old pounced on a loose ball from a Marseille defender to volley home from outside the goal area and past goalkeeper Paul Cattier.
