Bordeaux won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 4-1 Ligue 1 losing effort in their last game against FC Lorient. In that game, Girondins de Bordeaux managed 57% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 7 on target. At the other end, FC Lorient had 13 shots on goal with 7 of them on target.
Three or more goals per game have been seen in 6 of the last 6 fixtures where Girondins de Bordeaux have taken part. Their opponents scored 18 of them in this period while Les Girondins totted up 8.
Coming into this contest, Girondins de Bordeaux haven’t won at home in the past 6 league matches. Fans are getting restless.
Rennes go into this clash after a 5-1 Ligue 1 win with the eclipse of Dijon in their last game.In that game, Rennes had 74% possession and 25 attempts at goal with 12 on target. On the other side, Dijon FCO got 4 shots on goal with 1 on target.
A sequence of steadfast showings by the Rennes defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their previous 6 outings combined. Over that same period, their own attack force has managed to score 15. That kind of trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, of course.
Their previous form shows that Rennes have not lost to Girondins de Bordeaux when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches and are unbeaten in their last 3 away league matches.

Team News: Rennes
From a largely available group of players, there is just a single fitness issue for the Rennes manager Bruno Génésio to be concerned about. Jonas Martin (Surgery) won’t be in action.
In this game, Bordeaux will likely be able to score a goal against this Rennes side, but one goal probably shouldn’t be enough. I am going for a 1-2 winning margin for Rennes at the end of this one. Should be an interesting one.
