Note to punters: Game odds are correct when writing this preview. Please visit the bookmaker for updated prices for Bordeaux vs Rennes.

Both Teams will Score

While Rennes has the best form coming into this fixture, we are predicting goals on both ends. Bordeaux defeated Rennes in the reverse fixture and now has a home advantage despite a poor run of results. Rennes has only one away victory against Bordeaux in the previous 19 encounters. We expect the hosts to fight for a better result. The visitors have scored in the last six games, a trend we also  expect to continue in this game.

More than Two Goals

This is a fixture between a team that is struggling defensively and another that likes outscoring weak opponents. The last six fixtures for Bordeaux have seen more than three goals, five of which have been heavy losses. Four of six previous games for Rennes have had at least three goals. While only five of the last 19 meetings between Bordeaux and Rennes have had more than two goals, in-form Rennes should put at least two past Bordeaux’s struggling defence in this game.

Rennes Should Bag Victory

Both teams are fighting against/for something coming into this fixture. Rennes is looking for a top-five finish this season so that they can participate in the newly created conference Europa Conference League. The visitors sit seventh and only two points from the fifth-placed RC Lens. With a good form of five victories and one draw in the last six games, Rennes should edge out the struggling Bordeaux that has lost all the last five games.

Game Preview: Bordeaux Fights for Safety Points as Rennes Hopes for Top Five

A team that is fighting for survival meets one fight for Europa Conference League. Thus, it is a question of mentality, ability to suck pressure and team form. We have more in our game preview.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux needs points to secure a place in League 1 next season. The hosts are 16th on Ligue 1 table and only five points from relegation. Coming into this game, the hosts will hope to make it six points in the double. However, poor results occasioned by a troubled defence are a few things to worry about before Sunday. Moreover, Bordeaux goalkeeper Benoit Costil is another headache for manager Jean Louis Gasset before Sunday. The shot-stopper has had below-par performance in the last four games, which could occasion Gasset to make a few changes in his squad before Sunday.

Rennes

Five victories in the last six games are reassuring for Rennes. The visitors have the sixth-best away record in Ligue 1 after 17 away Ligue 1 games. Moreover, Rennes has conceded only 16 goals on the road, translating to an average of one goal per away game. With only four losses on the road, Rennes manager Bruno Genesio hopes to keep his unbeaten record of 3 victories and one draw against Bordeaux manager, Jean Louis Gasset.
