Brest vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Blé (Brest).

Lyon has been one of the best teams in the league for quite a long time. But they have failed to match the expectation of their fans this time around. They did begin on the right note, or to be more precise, on an emphatic note, with a 6-0 humbling of Angers, but since then the squad has been devoid of a victory.

On that account, the fixture against Brest, from the bottom-tier, is a necessary one at this time. The Pirate Team does have the home advantage, but so far, the players have registered a single win this season, and against the experienced visitors, they are deemed to be on backfoot.

Brest vs Lyon Head-to-head (h2h)

Brest vs Lyon Prediction

Sylvio Junior’s men will be looking to get back into their groove, and after their brief winless run, this tie against the bottom-placed Brest will be the perfect opportunity to make that happen. Take into account that Lyon holds a 100% unbeaten record in h2h ties, and have never failed to score against them.

Moreover, Brest has won just once this campaign, and their counterparts have scored a total of 12 goals so far (the same as that of the mighty Parisians).

Most importantly, while the visitors qualified for the Champions League from the Ligue 1, their opposite number was not even present in the competition. They have just gained promotion from the lower division.

Taking these stats into account, count on the guests to register the three points.
