Brest vs Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 25th January 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Brest’s form has nosedived in the last few weeks, but the good news perhaps is that they did win their last league game which came against Toulouse, and it was a great match winning 5-2 in the end. That victory ended a 3-game streak without a win.
No one is talking about Brest going back down to Ligue 2 and the club do have a 7-point safety net, but this is the tough end of the season and the club will need at least another 15 points to be sure of staying in the league. For now, everything is good but that can change quickly.
But the clubs home form has been good, and they have lost just once here in the last five games. That defeat was against PSG and it remains the clubs only defeat at home.
Amiens are in the relegation zone in 18th and are 2 points from safety. They have picked up just 1 point from their last 9. Their last match ended in a draw though against Reims which was an impressive result.
If Metz lose to Reims at the weekend and Amiens win this then they would climb out of the bottom three.

Brest vs Amiens: Prediction
If Brest have one bogey team it is Amiens and the club genuinely struggle to beat them.
But we know that Brest have a good home record. As for playing away Amiens have lost 60% of their games and have only won 1 game this season on their travels.
We really like the thinking that Amiens can cause Brest some trouble based on their previous games and that is why we will back the handicap on them.
This will cover us for the draw if there is one, though the price on the handicap is falling. We will only select this market for this game as we really believe in it.
