Brest vs Nancy
French Ligue 2
Date: Monday, 12 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).
Brest will have a nice opportunity to return on the winning ways after back-to-back draws against Clermont and Red Star. They were on a run of six consecutive league wins. La Breizh Team will play the rock-bottomed Nancy in the last game of the Matchday No 14 on Monday evening at Stade Francis-Le Ble.
The visitors barely saved the second tier status in the previous term. They will obviously have a mountain to climb to make a similar accomplishment this time around, at least if we are to judge by a poor kick off to the new campaign.
Didier Tholot’s troops scored just 4 goals in 13 games and they took only five points in the process. They are as many as nine points shy of the safe zone at the moment. The latest of failures came last Friday when Clermont picked up the spoils from Stade Marcel-Picot in a 0-1 victory.
Brest vs Nancy: Head-to-head
A victory for Brest here would make teams level on number of wins in their head to head record.
Brest won one and drew two of last three meetings with Les Chardons.
Four of last five head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Brest vs Nancy: Prediction
Jean-Marc Furlan has the deadliest attacking line-up in the league in his ranks. Brest scored an impressive 26-goal tally in 13 games so far (two goals per game) which is well above the average for the second class of French football. The hosts boast league’s best attacking record.
Brest are particularly impressive on the home patch where they won four and drew one of last five games in the league. The team notched 13 goals in last four home outings. We see the home win as a genuine banker at 1.55 odds based on everything written above. Braver punters can back the hosts to win by two or more goals difference at the odds of 2.60.
