French Ligue 1
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Brest come into this game in 13th place with 34 points and they almost look safe in the league. Another couple of wins should secure that. They have not lost a game in Ligue 1 since the beginning of the month and have drawn 3 of their last four games.
Last weekend they travelled to Nice and came away with a 2-2 draw which would be seen as a valuable point especially as Brest usually only perform well at home, so they will be happy to return back their for this game.
The club have only lost 1 game at home all season and have picked up 24 of their 34 points in front of their home fans, Their last home game was a 3-2 victory over Saint Etienne.
Angers are in 14th and only one point behind their hosts. Last weekend the club beat Montpellier 1-0 at home and that was a huge result given that they had lost their previous 4 games in a row and were slipping down the table at an alarming rate.

Brest vs Angers: Prediction
Whilst winning last weekend would have given Angers a boost their away form is still poor and they have lost 7 games from 12, and their last win on the road was before Christmas.
Brest clearly have an upper hand here and the better form and Angers do not have good record playing them and that is why we will back Brest to get the home win.
For smaller stakes we will back the correct score. It just doesn’t make much sense going against Brest when they are at home and they should have enough in the tank to get this job done.
