Rennes vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 21st December 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes)
Rennes are in 4th place and have played some great football recently. They were knocked out of the League Cup in disappointing fashion for them as they lost to Amiens 3-2. But maybe the club are sensing the bigger picture and that is they have won their last 4 games in a row and are looking for European football next season.
The club are in a great position as they have 30 points but have an extra game over their rivals. Win that and they would, in theory, be in 3rd place and just 2 points behind Marseille in 2nd place.
Rennes have also won their last 4 league games at home their last one finished in a 2-1 win over Angers. Bordeaux are in 7th place with 26 points and a win here would take them within one point of their hosts.
Form has been average to poor though as they come into this game having lost their last two matches and have won 1 in their last 4 games, now is not the time to make mistakes but that is what has happened with the club.
A worrying trend is that Bordeaux have conceded 10 goals in their last 3 games, is their defence simply falling apart?
Rennes vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Last season Rennes won this game 2-0.
- Bordeaux have not beaten Rennes away in the league since 2013.
- The last 6 matches have finished in under 2.5 goals.
Rennes vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Going on form and the fact that Bordeaux have a miserable record here we are going to back the home win. Rennes are just in a good mood and have a lot of confidence flowing through the club, they can sense a European finish could be on the cards if they keep winning and can then breakaway.
We don’t expect many goals and the away side who have lost too many games lately may set up to just defend. We will back the correct score in Rennes favour though in a game they will have to work very hard to win but their quality should shine through.
Rennes vs Bordeaux: Bet Tips:
Rennes to beat Bordeaux at 2.00 (1/1)
Correct Score: Rennes to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 5.00 (4/1) and 8.00 (7/1).
