Brest vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 12th September 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis- Le Ble (Brest).
If you want to know how Brest have come up from Ligue 2 a few seasons ago and remain in Ligue 1 it is because of how they have been able to make their home ground difficult to play at for opposing teams.
Already they have drawn 1-1 with Rennes here. It is true they lost to PSG but that would have been expected but they still scored 2 goals against the league title favourites eventually losing 4-2. The problem for Brest is that they have started in poor form with no wins so far and are in 18th place.
Angers are in 2nd place and they would go top of the league if we see a huge shock on Saturday, which would mean PSG losing at home to Clermont. However it has been a fantastic start for Angers.
The club has 3 wins from 4 and are undefeated so far. Angers were able to beat Rennes 2-0 in their last game and away from home they have beaten Strasbourg though their last away game ended in a 1-1 draw with Bordeaux.
Brest vs Angers: Head to Head

- It’s been 4 games since Brest were able to beat Angers and they have no wins when at home to Angers since 2014.
- 3 of the last four meetings have ended in under 1.5 goals.
Brest vs Angers: Prediction
Angers have started really well and we expect them to start this game on the front foot and ask all of the questions.
But Brest will have used the recent international break to reset their league season and they can be dangerous at home. This is why we will back the home side to get the win and we also feel the value on them doing so is good.
Angers are not to be under estimated but we haven’t seen enough of them to be convinced that they will be a good side on the road.
