Brest vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 4th October 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).
Brest have had an up and down start to the season winning 2 and losing 3, with their victories sandwiched in between these defeats.
They come into this game in 13th place with six points and will be mildy happy, because their objective is to stay in the league and not be drawn into relegation. Their last game ended in a 3-2 defeat at Angers which the club would have been very disappointed at given that they were leading 2-1 with just 10 minutes left, it shoul have been three points or even at the very worst walk away with a draw.
Nobody can deny that Brest have been exciting coming forward and they have scored 9 goals so far. The downside to their play is being naive at the back and they have also conceded 12 goals in their first five games that is easily the most of any Ligue 1 team so far.
Monaco beat Strasbourg in a very exciting game at the weekend that ended in a 3-2 victory, but it wasn’t without cost. Monaco finished the game with just 9 men after Aurelien Tchouameni and Axel Disasi were sent off. But the club held on and they have started the season well and are in 5th place with 10 points.
Monaco have lost just once this season away from home and that was against Rennes who are in 1st place.
Brest vs Monaco: Head to Head
The clubs have only played each other once in recent times which is going back to 2010 when Monaco were at home and Brest won 1-0.
Brest v Monaco: Prediction
Monaco will be the favourites and only know one real way to play and that is attack. The same can be said of Brest, this means that there is a good possibility that we will see a very open and entertaining game with lots of goals, and that is what we are concentrating on here.
Wissam Ben Yedder is scoring again for Monaco and he should be looked into. As for Brest keep an eye out for Steve Mounie who is usually a good price and he has been banging in the goals of late.
