Rennes and Bordeaux will be facing each other at the Roazhon Park on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to continue their recent form in Ligue 1. Rennes had a 2-0 lead in their trip to Marseille last weekend thanks to goals from Benjamin Bourigeaud and Ismaila Sarr, before conceding two goals in the last 35 minutes of the game. On the flip side, Bordeaux managed an excellent 2-1 home victory against Monaco last weekend thanks to a brace from Francois Kamano.

Betting Tips for the game
Rennes kicked off this Ligue 1 campaign with a 3-1 defeat on the road at Lille, but they bounced back with a 1-0 home win against Angers in Week 2. Last weekend, Rennes only managed a 2-2 draw at Marseille despite the fact they had a two-goals lead. Rennes should feel confident ahead of this tie as they have suffered just one defeat in their last nine games across all competitions.
On the flip side, Bordeaux have finally ended their two-game losing streak with an impressive 2-1 home win against Monaco last weekend. Les Girondins are also competing in the Europa League and they are now very close to book their place in the group stage. Away from home, Bordeaux looked more than decent over the past four months, losing just once in their last nine games across all competitions.
Rennes did well to beat Bordeaux both home and away in Ligue 1 last term, and we expect a similar result here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Rennes to win at odds 2.05.

First Goalscorer odds
Ismaila Sarr has now scored in back-to-back Ligue 1 games and he is the club’s top scorer with two goals under his belt. Last season, he only managed five goals in 24 league appearances, but we expect him to have a much better season this year. Our first goalscorer prediction is Ismaila Sarr at odds 6.50.
