Rennes wins Brittany derby in French league

RENNES, France (AP) " A goal from substitute Adama Diakhaby two minutes into added time helped Rennes keep its perfect home record this season and beat 10-man Guingamp 1-0 in the French league on Friday.

Rennes, which has now picked a perfect 12 points from four games at Roazhon Park, moved two points clear off its Brittany rival in the standings, and four points behind leader Nice.

Diakhaby scored the winner from close range 15 minutes after coming in. The 20-year-old forward connected with a cross from another substitute, Pedro Henrique, to beat keeper Karl-Johan Johnsson with a clinical finish.

Guingamp was reduced to 10 players in the 64th minute after Moustapha Diallo received a second yellow card for pulling Paul-Georges Ntep's shirt in the box. Kamil Grosicki took the spot kick but his effort was saved by Johnsson.

Nice hosts Lorient on Sunday.
