Brest vs Lorient French Ligue 2 Prediction by LeagueLane

Brest vs Lorient
France – Ligue 2
Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).

Brest come into this game on Saturday afternoon with the best form in the league. Their latest win a 3-1 victory over Valenciennes away from home made sure that they have won their last 5 games in a row. This brilliant form has moved the club into 3rd place and they are now just 2 points behind league leaders Metz.

Brest started slow at home this season but this has been rectified and the club have won their last 3 games in a row at Stade Francis-Le Ble. They have scored 9 goals in their last two games and it is fair to say that they are on a roll.

Lorient are having to get used to Ligue 2 football after being a regular team in Ligue 1 and they come into this game in 4th place so this will be a super clash between the teams with Lorient being able to overtake Brest with a win here. We also shouldn’t forget that this game is seen as a derby and there is certainly a rival between the two teams from the west.

Lorient’s form has stumbled but it was fixed just before the break when they swiped aside Nancy 4-1 at home. Their away form is the 4th best in the league where they have lost just one game although that came in their last game on the road, a defeat against Orleans.

  • Last season Brest won this game fairly easy with a 3-0 victory.

Brest vs Lorient: Prediction
