Stade Rennais is hosting Bordeaux at Roazhon Park in round 11 in the French Ligue 1.
Rennais has had one of the best starts of the season in a while, but they have won only 1 of their last 7 games. Rennais is on a 2-game losing streak. They have lost one game in the Champions League to Chelsea, and one game in Ligue 1 against PSG. Rennais has had 51% of ball possession in that game, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 85% of the correct passes. It was a solid game for Rennais, but they just couldn’t stop PSG, and they ended up losing this game 3-0. Despite their bad form as of late, Rennais is in 3rd place in the standings with 18 points, 18 score goals, and 14 conceded goals so far. Da Silva, Guirassy, and Aguerd have each scored 3 goals for Rennais this season. Del Castillo and Bourigeaud have each added 3 assists. Rugani is injured, while Dalbert is suspended because of the red card. Da Silva and Nzonzi are in danger of being suspended if they concede another yellow card. Rennais is a good team, but they are in a bad form. We will see if this international break has done any good to Rennais and if they can break their losing streak.
Bordeaux is playing hot and cold this season, and they are in 12th place with 12 points. Rennais is having a terrible season in the attacking end, and they have scored only 9 goals so far. Defensively, Bordeaux is solid with only 11 conceded goals. In their latest Ligue 1 game, Bordeaux was hosting Montpellier, and they have had 52% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 3 corner kick, 0 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Bordeaux has lost this game 2-0 with 2 conceded goals in the second half. Kalu, Maja, Basic, and Oudin have each scored 2 goals for Bordeaux so far, while Briand added 2 assists. Kalu and Mexer are both injured, and they will miss this game for Bordeaux. Otavio is at risk of being suspended. Bordeaux is really inconsistent this season, and I just don’t think they have the quality to reach the Champions League spot, but they will be fighting for the Europa League, although, I don’t think they will get there. Only one team this season is worse than Bordeaux in the attacking end, and that is Dijon who is in last place.
The trends are on Bordeaux’s side in this matchup, but Rennais has not lost to Bordeaux in their last 6 home games, while Bordeaux has lost 3 straight games on the road. Rennais is the better team here, and I think they will break their losing streak here.
