Brest vs Clermont
French Ligue 1

Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble.

Brest will be searching for their third consecutive Ligue 1 win on Sunday afternoon when they play host to Clermont in Gameweek 35.

Michel Der Zakarian’s men backed up the huge 2-1 win over Lyon by easing past the rock-bottomed Metz seven days ago.

The scoreline form Stade Saint-Symphorien may not suggest so (Brest won 0-1) but Brest completely controlled the happenings on the pitch.

Youcef Belalli made the difference by netting the only goal of the game midway through the first half, the maiden goal in Brest’s shirt for the Algerian forward.

Brest moved up to the eleventh place in the Ligue 1 table after the mentioned wins. They will have a nice chance to make it three on the trot here against Clermont who desperately need points in the battle for avoiding relegation.

Clermont have been playing hot and cold ever since the beginning of the season and their performances seem to be coming in streaks.

Luckily for their fans, Pascal Gastien’s troops currently seem to be on a positive streak. They took five out of nine possible points from the previous three league affairs.

Clermont thus rescued a point after going 0-2 down in the last weekend’s meeting with Angers at their Stade Gabriel Montpied.

Gastien’s troops will base their optimism ahead of this tie on the fact they have lost only two of the last six Ligue 1 matches on the road.

Brest vs Clermont Head-to-head

Brest vs Clermont Prediction

Brest are on a fine run of form with back-to-back wins in the last two league games and we will back them to maintain it and see off Clermont at the odds of 2.30 here.

This matchup usually offered low-scoring outings historically and we expect the continuation of such a trend which makes the Under 2.5 goals FT pick a great betting option at the 1.90 odds.
