Although the Top 14 season is only three weeks old, Bordeaux Begles are under pressure to produce a winning performanceon Saturday, when they host newly promoted Bayonne at the Stade Chaban Delmas in Bordeaux. Bordeaux are currently bottom but one in the table, with only winless Grenoble below them. Although they started the campaign with a stunning home victory over the reigning Champions, Racing 92, they have since lost back to back fixtures against Toulouse and Montpellier. While they may not have been confident of claiming anything from their trip to Toulouse, they pushed their hosts all the way before going down by 17-22, taking a consolation bonus point.
However, an ill disciplined second half at home against Montpellier last weekend, saw them give up a number of kickable penalties, and a game that stood at 12-16 at the interval, ended up in a 15-32 defeat. Bayonne who won promotion to the Top 14 Orange at the end of last season, have exceeded expectations in the early rounds of the competition. An amazing win against Toulon in Round 1, was followed by a dogged draw against Castres 12-12. Their first road trip last weekend, also brought a first defeat. PAU shutting them out in the second half, as they secured a 25-9 victory.

Bordeaux Begles still have a chance of clinching a sixth place finish in the Top 14 Orange table, and with it a pots-season place in the knockout phase of the tournament. However, they are currently three points behind Racing Metro, and will most likely need to win both of their remaining fixtures to have hope at all of extending their season beyond next weekend. This weekend they face Bayonne at the Stade Chaban Delmas, a club who are fighting for their Top 14 future, having slipped into the relegation zone despite three wins in their last six fixtures. Bordeaux's own form over the same period has in fact been slightly worse than that of their visitors, having won two and lost four games during that same sequence.
While a win this weekend will keep Bordeaux Begles interest going until the final round of fixtures, they face a trip to Toulouse on the final day. and against the form club in France at the moment, who are themselves chasing a top two finish. hopes of finishing with two wins seems very remote for the team from the Atlantic coast. If Bayonne do not manage to record a positive result at Bordeaux, they will face mid-table La Rochelle on the last day, knowing that nothing less than victory will suffice, which in front of their own fans will bring pressures of it own.
