Bordeaux vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 2nd May 2021
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut Atlantique.
Bordeaux have dropped to 16th place after a period of terrible form, and they could be relegated.
It would be stunning if the club were since they have become a staple of Ligue 1 football. The problem they have is losing seven games in a row and they are now 5 points from the bottom three.
Last weekend Bordeaux lost their 18th game of the season away to Lorient in a 4-1 crushing. But at home their form does not fare any better and they have lost four in a row, they have also conceded 6 goals in their last two home games and there doesn’t seem to be a glimmer of hope for the club.
Rennes are in 7th place and are just two points from a possible Europa League finish. They have 18 more points than their hosts and last weekend they hammered Dijon 5-1.
Form is good for Rennes and they have won their last 3 games in a row. The club have not lost a game for seven weeks and have also gone their last three away games without defeat.
Victory for Rennes could move them up to 5th place depending on results around them.

Bordeaux vs Rennes: Prediction
Bordeaux will surely end their poor form soon, but it could have to wait as Rennes are in great form and also usually get the right results over their opponents.
Bordeaux did beat Rennes earlier in the season, but Rennes have improved in the last six weeks and will be very difficult to beat so we will back the away side to win.
Keep an eye on Martin Terrier the striker for Rennes who has been in good form and is scoring goals lately, we will back him to get another.
