Match Preview 

Les Rouge et Noir ready to start their Ligue 1 campaign after an international break. Rennes started the season on a positive note, but the downfall in the next few matches generated worrying signs for them. Stephan's men have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions. The 2-1 victory against Brest was their only win in this run. 

In the most recent encounter, Paris Saint-Germain defeated Rennes 3-0, despite Kylian Mbappe and Neymar's absences. Moise Kean and Angel Di Maria scored inside the opening 25 minutes. The own goal from Da Silva in the 73rd minute delivered a scoreline of 3-0. Next week, they will take on Chelsea in the second-leg match in the Champions League. Out of four matches, Rennes secured just one point to find themselves at the bottom. 

Meanwhile, Bordeaux saw a similar pattern in Ligue 1, and they moved to 12th after losing three of their last four matches. The most recent defeat came against Montpellier at home, following the 4-0 victory against Monaco. Florent Mollet and Andy Delort’s strike in the second half delivered Les Girondins the first home defeat in Ligue 1 2020-21. 

They kept six clean sheets from their opening 10 matches, but Les Girondins failed to carry the rhythm. The international break will push Bordeaux to boost their chances in the top ten. They are winless in their last seven matches against Rennesincluding a 1-0 loss last season.
