Brest vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: 22 January 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).
Brest opened the year with two straight Ligue 1 defeats to Nice and PSG. They have conceded five unanswered goals in the process.
The team led by Michel Der Zakarian are hoping to bounce back on Saturday afternoon but it will be easier said than done given the opposition comes in the likes of defending champions Lille.
The visitors got off to a slow start to the season, but they grew in both form and confidence over the last several months.
Lille will travel to Stade Francis-Le Ble unbeaten in eight subsequent league affairs. They have won three and drawn two of the last five Ligue 1 matches in the process.
Lille bagged two or more goals in three of the last five league games. They will fancy their chances of maintaining such a fine attacking form this weekend knowing that Brest have allowed five goals in their last two losses.
Also, Brest lost two games in a row on the home patch, conceding seven goals along the way.
They fell 0-4 to Montpellier and 0-3 to Nice. Overall, Brest took only one point in the last four league outings.
Lille, on the other side, won two and drew one of the last three away fixtures in the competition. They have notched at least two goals in three of the last four league matches on the road.
Brest vs Lille Head-to-head
- Lille also have tradition on their side going into this match.
- The visitors won six, drew two, and lost two of the last ten meetings with Brest.
- Each of the last two head to head games, however, ended without a winner.
Brest vs Lille Prediction
Lille will come into this affair in much higher spirits. The bookmakers price them up at the 2.15 odds to clinch the victory over the out-of-form Brest side. Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side are only eight points below the Champions League spots at the moment and a win here would get them closer to the main goal.
Since Brest shipped seven goals in the last two home fixtures against the likes of Montpellier and Nice, we will also back Lille to net at least two goals here at the 2.00 odds.
