Brest vs Bordeaux
France – League Cup
Date: Wednesday 18th December 2019
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Brest have taken good strides forward in the last year and this should be a good match with a great atmosphere.
Brest’s objective has been to make playing at their home stadium difficult for teams and it is the results they get here that will keep them up. The club have only lost 1 game and that can be forgiven since it came against PSG at home. They have been really impressive here scoring 15 goals and conceding just 6. Their last home game ended 0-0 against Nice.
Overall form isn’t good with just 1 win in their last 5 games and they are sliding down the table, a win here would be great for momentum.
Bordeaux were doing very well in the league but they come into this match having lost their last 2 games and have slipped down a little. Bordeaux have not won for 4 games away from home and that could be very telling coming into this match. In the previous round they dispatched of another Ligue 1 team in struggling Dijon winning 2-0.
Brest vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
The teams have not here since 2012 when the game finished 1-1.
From the last 5 meetings Brest have just one win.
5 of the last seven meetings have ended in under 2.5 goals.
Brest vs Bordeaux: Prediction
In many ways Bordeaux are the better team, but form is not good and travelling here which is a big distance for the club in midweek is not ideal. Brest is a very hard ground to come too and even if Bordeaux possess the better skilled players and even fitter ones they could well get dragged into the pace of Brest’s game.
Let’s remember that even when PSG won here the score was very close and Brest remain a handful at home.
We think they will win and we will also pick out the correct score too. Brest can’t be underestimated at home. We don’t however believe that there will be many goals in this game.
