League: French Ligue 1
Bordeaux – Rennes
Pick: Both teams to score
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Rennes have won four of their last six league meetings with Bordeaux
- Both teams have scored in five of Rennes’ last six matches
- Bordeaux have conceded at least 3-goals in each of their last five fixtures
Rennes are scoring goals and winning games right now
Bordeaux suffered a humiliating 4-2 defeat at fellow strugglers Lorient last time out and now sit 5pts above the drop zone with four games still left to play. Rennes continue their rich vein of form at home to the already relegated Dijon, securing a 5-1 victory.
Rennes lost their reverse league fixture against Bordeaux 1-0 but over the last few seasons, they have had the better of the pair’s encounters. Rennes have won four of their last six meetings with Bordeaux and head into Sunday’s clash as the clear form favourites with five wins and a draw from their last six matches.
We’re expecting goals in this game as Rennes have scored three or more goals in three of their last five fixtures and Bordeaux have conceded three or more goals in each of their last five outings and have only failed to score themselves in one of those matches.
We’re confident that both teams will score on Sunday and we have predicted a winning scoreline of 3- in Rennes’ favour. The visitors are in great form and have been scoring goals for fun of late, while Bordeaux look poor at the back and remain in the midst of a losing streak.
