Brest vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Blé.
The Pirates have recently rebranded themselves as one of the best teams in the competition. They used to be a struggling squad, but in the past two months or so they dramatically improved their form, and even delivered a surprise loss for the second-placed Lille.
Note that this defeat has been the only one that Lille has suffered so far this league season.
Going on, at home, Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men have been an even more menacing threat, and they have been scoring goals for fun as well these past few game weeks.
Meanwhile, the Red and Whites are placed in the relegation zone, and have been one of the worst teams in the whole league. They also have a total of just two wins in the Ligue 1 so far in 2020-21, and one of those had come against the 17th placed Strasbourg.
On top of that, Dall’Oglio’s men also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years. Likely, expect Brest to be the better team on the pitch this Sunday.
Brest vs Reims: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Pirates had recorded six of the former eight overall wins.
- They have conceded a total of just one goal from the former four clashes.
- The last the guests won at this stadium was back in 2013, and before that in 2003.
- In the past 15-year period, the visitors have scored a total of just one goal at this venue.
Brest vs Reims: Prediction
Dall’Oglio’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Bordeaux. In the meantime, David Guion’s men registered a 0-0 draw at home the past game week, against Nice.
Going on, the Pirates had won four of their previous five overall matches, and had scored a total of ten goals in the process. Take note that three of these had come against Lille – one of the best defensive teams in the whole competition.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 12 of their preceding 15 match-ups, and remained so in 15 of their former 19 games on the road.
In addition, Dall’Oglio’s men had recorded six of the previous eight overall wins. Their latest lost at this venue against this rival had come in 2013, and before that in 2003.
Considering these stats, expect Brest to deliver a convincing performance this Sunday at the Stade Francis-Le Blé.
