Bordeaux at home against Rennes – Sunday – 1:00pm GMT – The Matmut Atlantique Stadiums.

Bordeaux, currently sitting sixteenth, host twelfth placed Rennes on Sunday.

It’s six points so far for Bordeaux this season, going into this meeting

Bordeaux will be hoping for a win, following a disappointing 3-3 away draw against Montpellier in their last game.

Bordeaux’s success this season will ultimately depend on their ability to break the habit of not winning, as they failed to secure a win in six of their last seven games. They currently sit in sixteenth place, with a total of six points having won one game, drawn three meetings, and lost three games.

When Bordeaux host Rennes, they will do so on the back of one dart on their own ground.

Bordeaux will have secured 9 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Injury and illness have depleted Vladimir Petkovic’s Bordeaux and they will likely be missing five key personnel for Sunday’s match.

With the Ligue 1 season well into its stride, Rennes have managed to gain eight points

Rennes come to this game on the back of a 6-0 home win against Clermont Foot at the Roazhon Park.

Suffering three losses in four fixtures is a terrible run of form for any club, Bruno Genesio’s Rennes will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. They currently stand twelfth in the League, with eight points having won two matches, drawn two games, and lost three fixtures.

Rennes have drawn one game and lost two meetings of their three League matches on the road this season.

Victory for Rennes would take their points tally to 11 so far this season.

Rennes’s squad has depth, but even so, Bruno Genesio is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
