Brest vs Nice
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 6th January 2021
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis Le-Ble (Brest).
Ligue 1 is back for the new year in midweek and Brest will be hoping to start the year with a win at home.
Brest have gone their last 3 games without victory and their last match ended in a 2-1 defeat at Lens. The club have done very well so far though and come into this match in 11th place and are 11 points clear of the bottom three.
A relegation threat isn’t the problem for the club but they would like to improve greatly on last season and try to finish inside the top 10.
Most of Brest’s points have been at home, they have 16 so far from their total of 23 points and they have won 5 from 8 games played here so far.
Nice are in 12th and just a point behind their hosts so this will be a very interesting game. Form is not good with 1 win from their past five and their last match ended in a draw against Lorient, that match finishing 2-2.
However Nice have a good record away from home and have lost just once so far and have gone their last five away games undefeated, picking up 11 points from their last 15 available.
Brest vs Nice Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 0-0.

Brest vs Nice Prediction
This is a very interesting game given that Nice can leap frog Brest in the league with a win, Nice who have had recent troubles also have a very good away record.
On the other hand Brest have been difficult to beat at home. Our tip will be to see the home side win the game in a very close contest. Brest are not afraid to set up with attacking play when at home, and whilst they will leave gaps they have been dangerous and have a lot of confidence in their own stadium.
We will also back for there to be more goals in the 2nd half, as the gaps appear later on and this is a game that Brest could be made to work very hard for, which is why the markets are very open for this fixture.
Brest vs Nice Betting Tips:
