Brest vs Lens
France – Ligue 2
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Brest have kept hold of a top 2 spot with a great streak of recent and they host shaken up Lens for their Matchday 35 clash hoping to seal the deal with a seven-point gap behind them and just four games left to play, which gives them hope of a Ligue 2 title too as they lag four behind table-toppers Metz.
Jean-Marc Furlan’s men have been scoring numbers of goals on the regular and beat Red Star, Nancy, Orleans, and Ajaccio since early April. They’ll now hope to end April on a positive note and make it five out of five this month, possibly even kicking off promotion celebrations at Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Lens have plans of their own as they dropped out of the league’s top 5 cut with a very unpredictable streak behind them and a 0-1 loss to Lorient last week, where 3’ opener from Pierre Hamel proved enough for the visitors to snatch all three points. They’ve beaten Grenoble Foot 38 beforehand but that only ended a four-game winless streak too, which will be just as worrying as Philippe Montanier looks for a cure late in the campaign.
Brest vs Lens: Head-to-head
Lens beat Brest 2-1 earlier this term, where a late goal from Gaetan Charbonnier proved nothing more than a consolation for the visitors at Stade Bollaert-Delelis.
Brest have earned two wins and a draw in three head-to-head clashes beforehand.
We’ve seen goals on both ends in four of the last five encounters, which promises another exciting occasion here.
Brest vs Lens: Prediction
We will back Brest to capitalize on the moment they’ve been enjoying lately and we’ll go for a Home win at 2.20, which could as well see them qualify for the Ligue 1 next term and greatly set back the visitors in their ambitions to make it back to the top 5.
Lens have been struggling to score goals but they’ll have to go all out for the points here, which has us hoping for an exciting occasion worthy of a Matchday 35 derby clash. We’ll thus also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.75, hoping to see goals on both ends and a winner on the day.
Brest vs Lens: Bet Tips
