Each day, a number. Thanks to another victory in the francilian derby this past week-end (16-12), Racing gets re-familiar with success in TOP 14 and is moving upwards in the overall league table. It’s now time to get focus on the travel to Biarritz before the traditional winter break. A confrontation that Ciel et Blanc will have at heart to win to then enjoy freely their resting weeks.
As the percentage of Racing Metro 92's victories in TOP 14 against Basque teams, counting both Aviron Bayonnais and Biarritz Olympique, since their comeback in the french rugby elite championship. A total of 12 victories out of 17 possible, or a 76.5% of victories taken by Racingmen against Biarritz Olympique and Airon Bayonnais since the 2009-2010 season. Eight out of eight at home added to five success in nine matches played in the Basque region. Besides, Racing Metro 92 stays on three consecutives win in Pays Basque, winning both of their away games last season, in Bayonne (18-25), in Biarritz (11-23) and this season in Day 6 of TOP 14 against Bayonne (16-19).
Biarritz Olympique who won twice at home in their Aguilera stadium against Racing Metro 92 in 2010 and 2011 almost surprised the Ciel et Blanc last year far from their Basque countries, losing by only one point at Yves-du-Manoir (13-12).
