Brest vs Bordeaux
France- Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 5th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Stade Francis-Le Blé (Brest).
Brest’s poor away form was highlighted again when they lost 3-0 to Dijon at the weekend and that stopped the team in their tracks as they had won their last 2 games in a row.
Brest are in 14th and they still look safe as they have 28 points and are 9 points clear of the bottom three, but they must make sure that they win their home games. The club have only lost 1 game at home and have gone their last 4 games here undefeated. Their last result ended in a 2-1 win over Amiens.
Bordeaux got a very good 0-0 draw against 2nd placed Marseille and really frustrated them on Sunday night. The club are in 10th place and they look destined for a middle of the table finish.
Having said that they should be able to take encouragement from the fact they have gone their last two games unbeaten. Plus, a win here could move the club up 2-3 places depending on other results.
Brest vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
The last time the teams played here the game finished 1-1.
In the last 3 league games played at Brest they have no wins over Bordeaux but they did beat them here in the Coupe de la Ligue at the end of the year that game finishing 2-0 to them.
There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Brest vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Bordeaux have an average away record although they have still collected 15 points from a possible 33 and that is good enough to place them 6th in the away table.
What is encouraging for the home side is that they have just beaten Bordeaux here a few weeks ago and even though they don’t have a great record against them perhaps the tide is turning?
Brest are by definition a home side and we think they will be too strong in this midweek game for Bordeaux.
