Brest vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).
The Pirates will take on newly promoted Lorient at home and they will be looking for back to back wins.
Brest started the campaign poorly losing their opening two games, although they have Marseille a good fight at this ground only losing 3-2 in the end. Brest have built their reputation at home and they will feel confident going into this game.
The home side will have a spring in their step because they won their last game overcoming Dijon 2-0 away from home. They come into this game in 16th place but with a win could well jump 3-4 places.
Lorient won their first game beating Strasbourg 3-1 but they have now lost their last 2 in a row. In defeats against Saint Etienne and Lens they have conceded 5 goals in those two matches and this looks like it will be a tricky fixture for the new boys. Only Strasbourg and Dijon have conceded more goals than Lorient so far, so they really need to sort their defence out.
Brest vs Lorient: Head to Head
The teams last met in a friendly only in July at this ground where the game ended 2-2.
Their last league meeting here took place when the teams were playing in Ligue 2 this was in 2018 and Brest won the game 3-2.
In the last 15 years the clubs have met at Brest 7 times with only one win for Lorient.
Counting league games only there is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Brest vs Lorient: Prediction
We feel we will see a very exciting match between these two clubs with both of them having the opportunity to put three points on the board. There is very little between them.
Both clubs score goals and Lorient concede them and that is why one of ou choices will be to see over 2.5 goals.
We will back Brest to get the win, they put in a great shift even in losing to Marseille here and have won their last game so are finding form.
Brest vs Lorient: Bet Tips:
Brest to beat Lorient at 2.75 (7/4)
Over 2.5 goals at 2.00 (1/1).
