Brest vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 2nd May 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Brest are in 13th but are good form and have lost just once in their past five games. The club beat Saint Etienne last weekend 2-1 away from home and that was an impressive win, and they will be looking to build on that.
The home side are unbeaten in their last 3 games and they could move up a couple of places with victory at the weekend. What is important to note is that Brest have the 6th best home record and have accumulated 28 points from a possible 51 with 8 wins so far at home.
Nantes have struggled this season and come into this game in 18th place. Finish there and they would be involved in a play-off with a Ligue 2 side. However, finish in 19th and that would be automatic relegation and Nimes in that place have the same points as Nantes with 31.
There is a 4-point gap to 17th place so a win would not move Nantes out of the bottom three. Last weekend the Canaries beat Strasbourg in a rare and very welcomed victory.
It also has to be said that Nantes recent away form has improved, and they have won 3 of their last five games and lost just once, so there could be a glimmer of hope for the side just yet.

Brest vs Nantes: Prediction
We expect this game to be close and it could finish as a draw, which of course can be a risky market to dive into.
What we do like is both teams to score market, history says that there is a more than 90% chance to see this happen and with both sides finding form, especially for Nantes away from home we could expect to see both scoring.
For smaller stakes we will back the correct score at half time which will offer us fantastic value. Nantes really need to go for the win at a difficult ground and this will allow spaces on the pitch, so we do expect to see goals.
Brest vs Nantes: Bet Tips:
Both teams to score at 1.72 (8/11)
Half Time Correct Score: 0-0 or 1-0 to Brest at 2.75 (7/4) and 4.33 (10/3).
