Rennes vs Bordeaux
2018/19 French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 2nd September 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes)
Rennes come into this game having steadied the ship somewhat after losing their opening game to Lille 3-1. They have followed that up with a good win against Angers and then went to Marseille and pulled out a 2-2 draw even though most people thought that Marseille would triumph in that game.
The only worry is that they are shipping goals and have conceded 5 so far but they look like a team who will be quite strong at home and we should expect the majority of their points this season to come at Roazhon Park.
Bordeaux got a great result on Thursday as they beat Gent 2-0 which means they have qualified for the Europa League. This will be a big boost to the team who have suffered in the league so far and many people believe it was because qualifying for the Europe was on their mind.
However they did win their last league game when they beat Monaco 2-1 in what was seen as a shock win after they lost their first two games of the season.
Rennes vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Last season this match ended 1-0 to Rennes.
- Bordeaux have not won at this stadium in 5 years.
- Home or away the last 4 games have all been under 2.5 goals.
Rennes vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Bordeaux might be a little hangover as they celebrated a lot on Thursday. Rennes have been decent but not shown their true qualities and the truth is both teams might just be happy with a draw.
We will back the draw for half time and also back under 2.5 goals as both teams especially the away side will be tired. We can expect the ball to be played more in the middle of the field and do not expect a very exciting game.
