Rennes moved up to fifth in Ligue 1 as they beat 10-man Caen 1-0 with a late Ola Toivonen penalty.

Cean - who lost N'Golo Kante to a red card in the 28th minute - made all the running and dominated the game from the start until the 87th minute without scoring and there lied the rub.

With three minutes to go Toivonen was brought down by Adeoti Hosiner and the former PSV man stepped up to put away his side's first real chance of the night.

It was the performance of a side with luck at their back, but perhaps one of a team which can make a real difference in the top six this season.

They had to ride fortune to get their, though.

Caen started to dominate after just six minutes, Julien Feret brushing the bar with a fine 20-yard effort.

Feret remained at the heart of the action and produced a cross which was met by Benhali Koita, but he found Benoit Costil more than equal to his header.

Kante received his marching orders 17 minutes before the break for a late crunch on Cheikh M'Bengue, but it did not slow his side down as Herve Bazile went close with a lob.

They continued to pour forward after the break, with Feret's snapshot being turned away and then Costil having to use every inch of his frame to claw away a Jean Calve lob.

That was Caen's last stand too, and with three minutes left Toivonen was chopped by Hosiner and Toivonen duly stuck away his third goal of the season.
