Racing 92 have somehow climbed to second position in the French Top 14 Orange table, despite Racing Metro inability to secure a single bonus point from the first eleven fixtures that they have contested during the season. The team from the Paris suburbs have won eight and drawn one of their eleven games. The two losses they have suffered came at bottom club Agen back in Round 3, and also away from home at Castres in Round 8.

They have managed to score just 20 tries, a total that is only beaten by Bordeaux of the other top seven clubs, who have crossed their opponents line 19 times. With Bordeaux Begles being the visitors to the Stade Yves-du-Manoir on Saturday, a tight contest with few tries appears to be the promise.

Bordeaux played some of the most thrilling rugby in last season's tournament, but began the new campaign in atrocious form. Just one win in the first four games, saw them nearer to the foot of the table than the top. However, since gaining a draw at the then table topping Clermont Auvergne, they have embarked on a run of six wins in seven games. A run of success that has seen them climb the table steadily, and now occupy fifth position, just five points off of top spot.

On Saturday, fourth place plays fifth at the Stade Yves-du-Manoir in Round 15 of the Top 14 tournament, with Racing Metro hosting Bordeaux Begles. The Parisians of Racing currently have a three point advantage over Saturday's visitors, and will be confident that they can extend that lead, given their home record during the current campaign, and Bordeaux's poor away form.

Racing have won six out of their seven Top 14 Orange matches at home, while by contrast Bordeaux have played seven games on the road, and recorded just a single victory. The clubs have both played two matches over the holiday period, and won their home fixture, while losing when they were away from their own grounds.

Last weekend, Racing travelled to Toulouse, and managed to keep them tryless, but found themselves beaten by 5 penalties to two of their own, as well as a drop goal. Bordeaux produced another stunning display of which they have been more than capable at their own Stade Chaban Delmas Stadium, thrashing Brive by 46-10. Their inability to reproduce similar displays on the road has held back their challenge in both domestic and European competition this season, and it is difficult to see that changing this coming weekend.
