Castres will be looking for a first win in the Top 14 on Sunday, since they last played at the Stade Pierre Antoine, when they host Bordeaux Begles in Round 9 of the tournament. Currently down in 11th position with 16 points, Castres are just five points above the relegation zone. With away form that has brought them just a draw against the bottom club in the table Bayonne, alongside three defeats, home victories are going to be vital to Castres during the current campaign if they are to avoid being dragged into a relegation dogfight.

Bordeaux are in fifth position, with five wins in eight fixtures so far. However, they have played five home games this season, which have brought them four of their five victories. If they are to cement their position in the top six in the Top 14 Orange table, Bordeaux Begles certainly need to improve on their results on the road. Their solitary away win this season came in Round 7 at lowly PAU. The results that both clubs recorded in the past fortnight in the Champions Cup, have reflected their form in the Top 14. Bordeaux won at home to Ulster but were beaten on the road at another Top 14 club, Clermont. Similarly, Castres were beaten away from home in Ireland against Leinster, while they crushed Northampton Saints last weekend on home soil.

Two of the form clubs of the French Top 14 tournament will clash at the Stade Pierre Antoine on Saturday, when Castres play host to Bordeaux Begles. Castres had gone on a run of four successive victories prior to their most recent Top 14 match, when they slipped to a 25-21 defeat at La Rochelle. A run that had seen them rise up the table, where they currently lie in eighth position. Bordeaux have suffered just two defeats in their last nine Top 14 Orange matches, and are placed fifth in the table after 12 matches. When the two clubs met each other in Round 1 of this season's tournament, nearly 20,000 fans turned up to see Bordeaux scrape home by 19-16 at the Stade Chaban-Delmas. Castres only home defeat this season in the Top 14, came in Round 6, when they rather surprisingly lost to Grenoble, not normally the best of travellers by 23-31.

Bordeaux have one of the most impressive away records amongst the Top 14 clubs. They have won two and drawn another of their six away games, with only the top two in the table, Clermont and Racing 92 having managed more wins on their travels. They also brought an end to Clermont's long unbeaten home record in Europe last weekend, winning 37-28 at theParc des Sports Marcel Michelin.

Castres pulled off a stunning away victory in the Alps against Grenoble in Round 21 of the Top 14 Orange tournament, to give themselves a chance to avoid relegation from the top tier of French rugby, after appearing in the Grand Final for the past two years, winning the title in 2013. On Saturday they welcome Bordeaux Begles to the Stade Pierre Antoine looking for a third win in four games, that could see them lift themselves out of the bottom two. Bordeaux who have produced some of the most free flowing rugby of any of the sides in the Top 14 this season, looked a good bet for a place in the play-offs for much of the campaign, but a recent dip in form has seen that post-season participation put into some doubt.

However, thanks to their ability to pick up bonus points, their total of ten being more than any other side in the competition, they still remain on the fringe of the play-off positions. Although they are back in ninth in the table, they trail sixth placed Oyonnax by just three points. Bordeaux are on a run of three successive defeats, and they might just find that Castres battling for their rugby futures, might just carry to much firepower for them in front of their own fans this weekend.
