Bordeaux will be visiting Roazhon Park on Friday for the Ligue 1 game with hosts Rennes.
Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Rennes v Bordeaux including the latest game odds.
Rennes will be hoping to bounce back here after the 3-0 Ligue 1 defeat last time out to Paris Saint-Germain.
In that game, Rennes managed 52% possession and 16 shots at goal with 4 on target. At the other end, Paris Saint-Germain got 9 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Moise Kean (11') and Ángel Di María (21', 73') scored for Paris Saint-Germain.
Rennes have really been misfiring in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 vs opposing sides during the course of their previous 6 outings. In those games, Rennes have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total 11. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.
Going into this contest, Rennes have not lost a league tie with Girondins de Bordeaux in their previous 7 games.
Girondins de Bordeaux
After tasting defeat last time out to Montpellier in Ligue 1 action, Bordeaux will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Girondins de Bordeaux managed 52% possession and 9 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. Montpellier had 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Florent Mollet (49') and Andy Delort (66') scored for Montpellier.
A tendency of at least one team not scoring a goal in games featuring Girondins de Bordeaux has been fairly consistent in recent matches. Checking on their last six games reveals that it has happened 5 times. During those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 9 and Les Girondins have scored 6.
Their prior results show that Girondins de Bordeaux:
- have left without a victory over Rennes in games played away from home for the previous 7 league games. Not good at all.
- are without a win away from home in their last 3 league games.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings stretching back to 04/02/2017 reveals that these encounters have ended in disappointment for Bordeaux. They’ve not been able to register any wins at all while Rennes have maintained the edge over them, running out winners in 67% of those matches played.
A combined sum of 10 goals were scored between them in this period, with 8 from Rennes and 2 for Les Girondins. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 1.67.
The last league fixture featuring these sides was Ligue 1 match day 19 on 21/12/2019 when it finished Rennes 1-0 Girondins de Bordeaux.
That day, Rennes managed 48% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was M'Baye Niang (82').
On the other side, Girondins de Bordeaux had 13 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.

Team News: Rennes
Rennes boss Julien Stéphan will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: Bordeaux
With a fully healthy group to choose from, Bordeaux manager Jean-Louis Gasset does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
In our opinion, Bordeaux may find it difficult to be putting a goal past this Rennes lineup who we think should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even match with a 1-0 win for Rennes when all is said and done.
Should be an interesting one.
