It is sixth against seventh in the French Top 14 Orange tournament on Saturday at the Stade Chaban Delmas, when Bordeaux Begles entertain Brive in Round 8. Both clubs have recorded four victories this season, which is as many as any other side in the tournament, including the table leaders Clermont Auvergne. The two clubs have collected 18 points in the first seven rounds of fixtures, with Bordeaux having a marginally better points difference. Bordeaux have won three of the four matches that they have played at home so far, with the one exception being in Round 3, when they were beaten 15-32 by Montpellier. Last weekend they claimed their first away success of the campaign, with a narrow 30-28 triumph at PAU.

Brive have only suffered two losses in 2016, and on both occasions they were away from home. At struggling Grenoble in Round 4, which was there first defeat of the season, and Grenoble's only victory to date, and in Round 6, when they were thumped at Montpellier by 13-42. However, they have managed to secure a draw at newly promoted Lyon, and a stunning success at Toulon in Round 3, when they won 25-21. A record that suggests they will push their hosts all the way on Saturday, and would hope at the very least to take away a bonus point.

Bordeaux Begles will host Brive on Saturday in the penultimate round of the French Top 14 Orange Tournament at the Stade Chaban Delmas in Bordeaux. Bordeaux are still very much in with a chance of a top six finish in the table, and a place in the knockout phase of the competition, as they are in seventh position on the ladder, just a single point behind Castres. However, they are also embroiled in a battle with Saturday's visitors, for what is the vital seventh place in the table. While the club finishing in seventh will miss out on the play-offs, they will claim a place in next season's Champions Cup, thanks toMontpellier's success in winning the Challenge Cup, this giving the Top 14 an additional place in the premier European club competition.

Bordeaux have a five point advantage over Saturday's visitors. Victory on Saturday, will therefore, secure their place in the Champions Cup. With Castres facing relegated Oyonnax, however, they may go to next weekend's final round of fixtures, still adrift of the vital sixth place, and having to travel to take on Toulon. With Brive at home to PAU next week, a win on Saturday could well set them up to leapfrog Bordeaux Begles at the death of the regular season.

After playing some astonishing high quality attacking rugby in the early part of the Top 14 season, and riding high in the table. Bordeaux's season has hit something of a wall. and they now find themselves in mid-table. They are now in seventh position, having won won six and lost seven matches in the first 13 rounds of the tournament, and on Sunday they welcome Brive to the Stade Chaban Delmas, looking for the win that might re-invigorate their challenge for a play-off spot. Brive are two places, but just a single point behind Sunday's host. However, their away form this season, wouldn't suggest that they are likely to emerge with much to show from their trip to the Channel City. Just one win from their six away games in this season;s tournament, along with three bonus points.

Bordeaux fell to an away defeat last weekend, when Santiago Fernandez kicked a last gasp drop goal to secure a 15-12 win for Bayonne at the Jean Dauger stadium. While Bordeaux Begles were suffering heartbreak, Brive were completing a routine home victory over struggling Oyonnax by 19-6. Bordeaux have suffered only one defeat at home in the Top 14 Orange this campaign, which happened to be in their last match at home in the tournament, when they slipped 20-21 to Toulouse.
