Brest vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th November 2020
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).
Last weekend Brest recorded their sixth loss of the Ligue 1 campaign already and also it was the clubs 3rd loss in a row and they come into this encounter in 14th place.
Rennes were the latest team to beat them and that followed a 3-0 loss at home to Strasbourg. Brest return home where last season they made their stadium very difficult to win at but with no fans being allowed into stadiums they have seen just a 50% win rate so far.
Although a win at the weekend will be a major boost for the club it would only move them up one place and this season could already be turning out to be a hard slog for the club. They will have to keep focused.
Lille are in 2nd place and just 2 points behind PSG but the club have dropped 4 points in their last two games with two draws in a row. That has lost them any advantage that they briefly had over the French champions.
Still Lille will surely come into this game on a high after they went to Italy in midweek and beat AC Milan 3-0. It was a fantastic away win and shows the courage and quality of this Lille team.
Lille remain the only club in Ligue 1 who are still undefeated and they have earned 11 points from their last 15 available.
Brest vs Lille: Head to Head
Last season Lille won this fixture 2-1.
Lille has won the last 3 meetings in a row against Brest.
Brest have not beaten Lille since 2012.
Two from the last 3 meetings have ended with the correct score of 1-0 to Lille.
Brest vs Lille: Prediction
Brest are still a strong team at home and they tend to raise their game against the better teams, so we can expect some sort of reaction from a club who will come into this match as the outsiders.
However it would be odd to think that after such an impressive and glorious display against Milan in midweek that Lille will not get anything from this game.
One can certainly see Lille dominating play from the very beginning and we will be backing them to win this game.
We will also back both teams to score, and we must remember that Brest have already beaten Monaco at this ground so they are not to be entirely dismissed but they will come up against a very confident side in Lille.
Brest vs Lille Bet Tips:
Lille to beat Brest at 2.00 (1/1)
Both teams to score at 1.70 (7/10).
