|Ahead of this round 30 match, Bordeaux will try to secure their place in the top-half of the Ligue 1 (L1) table, whilst Rennes will be hoping to close the gap on a Europa League qualification place.|
|In 48 previous meetings at the Stade Matmut Arena in their L1 history, Bordeaux have won 33, Rennes have claimed five victories and the other ten games were drawn. Furthermore, the Girondins remain unbeaten in their last ten home encounters against Rennes in the top flight (W6, D4).|
|Currently in a downward spiral, Bordeaux are winless in their last four L1 matches (D2, L2) and have slowly slipped to ninth place in the table. After being defeated 2-1 away by Monaco in round 28, Gustavo Poyet’s men were unable to beat Angers at home last Saturday, and had to settle for a goalless draw (0-0).|
|After two straight wins against Troyes (2-0) and Amiens (0-2), Rennes saw an end to their winning run when they drew with Saint-Etienne at home last weekend (1-1) after a last-gasp equaliser by Ismaila Sarr in the 86th-minute. Currently sixth in the table, Sabri Lamouchi’s side sit one point behind fifth-placed Nantes.|
|Players to watch: Bordeaux’s top scorer is Malcolm who has eight goals and six assists in L1. However, he has scored only once in his last ten appearances in the league.|
|Malcom will go head-to-head with Rennes striker Wahbi Khazri who has nine goals so far this season and three in his last four L1 matches.|
|Stat attack: Bordeaux have lost only one of their last 29 clashes at home against Rennes in the top flight (W21, D7, L1)! However, they have failed to score in five of their last seven home fixtures in L1.|
|Rennes are unbeaten in their last five L1 matches. They have scored at least two goals in their last three away L1 games and in 15 away matches this season, have only failed to find the net once.|
