Brest vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 21st November 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis Le-Ble (Brest).
Following the postponement of Marseille’s game there is only one Ligue 1 match for Saturday which will see Brest at home take on Saint Etienne.
Brest are in 13th place and have lost 60% of their games so far, although they did stop a 3 game losing streak just before the international break.
That victory came against Lille in a thrilling 3-2 encounter. Lille have been one of the best teams in the league so far this season and are in 2nd place so this was a huge win for Brest and underlines that when they are at home they are a very tough team to beat.
It is possible for Brest to move up a couple of places with victory at the weekend and whilst the prices will be very open for this game they will be the slight favourites to get the win.
Saint Etienne keep free falling after starting the season well. The club have lost six games in a row and they come into this match in 15th place. Their last result ended in a close 2-1 loss against Lyon and on the road they have lost 3 games and won just once with their last victory coming back in September.
Brest vs Saint-Etienne Head to Head
Last season Brest won this fixture 3-2.
Saint Etienne have not recorded a victory away to Brest since 2013 although it must be noted that the clubs have only played each other on three occasions since then.
Brest’s win last season was their first over Saint Etienne since 2010.
Brest vs Saint-Etienne Prediction
Brest have lost 2 games at home this season but in general are very strong at this stadium and they have won 3 times here from their last four games.
Saint Etienne’s motivation will lie in the fact that they are just 2 points behind their hosts, so they could go ahead of them with a win here.
In general Saint Etienne have a decent record over Brest but the clubs have not played each other too many times over the last decade and a lot has changed at Brest.
The worry for Saint Etienne is confidence although they would have welcomed the international break for a rest after losing six matches in a row, we feel Brest will be too strong in this clash and tip the home win.
