Team News

  • Rennes have a number of absentees due to the African Cup of Nations.
  • John Boye, John Mensah, Cheick Diarra and Jonathan Pitroipa are all in South Africa preparing for the tournament.
  • Jean Makoun is set to return from a thigh injury, but Victor Montano and Abdoulaye Sane are both fitness doubts.
  • Bordeaux playmaker Ludovic Obraniak has not yet recovered from injury and will miss out.
  • Cheick Diabate is away on African Cup of Nations duty, but Jussie and Benoit Tremoulinas are set to return.

Prediction

  • Rennes welcome Bordeaux to Brittany hoping to continue their winning run in the league.
  • Frederic Antonetti's men recovered from a poor start to the campaign to move into the top four, and ended the first half of the season with wins over Valenciennes and Ajaccio.
  • However, les rouges-et-noirs did suffer a shock in the Coupe De France at the hands of Ligue 2 Lens, and they face a Bordeaux outfit that has been difficult to beat this term.
  • Les Girondins have been the draw specialists of the division this season, and with Francis Gillot's men possessing a stern defence and an in-form striker in Yoan Gouffran, a score draw appears very likely.
