Boufal opens season account, Bahoken grabs assist as Angers secure comeback victory over Rennes

Sofiane Boufal scored his first goal of the season while Stephane Bahoken provided an assist as Angers secured a 2-1 comeback win over Rennes in Friday's Ligue 1 game.

Boufal returned to Stade Raymond Kopa this month, where he started his career, after parting ways with Premier League club Southampton.

The 27-year-old was afforded his second appearance since his arrival against Julien Stephan’s men and delivered an impressive performance.

The Morocco international was handed a starting role, playing behind Cameroon international Bahoken, who led Angers attack.
