Lille vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 6th December 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille will be in super confident mood coming into this game after they beat Lyon 1-0 away on Tuesday.
Looking at form it seemed like Lille would struggle in the game but they came through and won the game through a Jonathan Ikone goal. The team had 8 goal attempts which was an impressive away to Lyon and they packed the midfield out playing a 4-3-2-1 formation that frustrated their opponents.
The question is can they do it again? Lille will be lookng for their 3rd straight win in a row.
The victory over Lyon has put Lille up to 4th place and they could go 3rd with a win on Friday night.
The club’s reputation has been built on their home form and in fact they have the best home form in the league where they have gained 20 points from a possible 24. They remain unbeaten at home so far this season.
Brest were brilliant in midweek as they dominated their game and smashed Strasbourg for five goals winning the game 5-0 and that stopped a 4 game winless run.
They have now has 21 points and are just four points from a top 4 position. Away form is poor with just 1 win all season and just 7 points won from a possible of 21. Their last game ended in defeat against Marseille and they have lost 3 of their last four games.
Lille vs Brest: Head to Head
The teams have not met at this stadium since 2012 when Lille won 1-0.
From their most recent 6 meetings Brest have won just once and Lille five times.
There is a 70% chance to see both teams to score.
Lille vs Brest: Prediction
Lille have the better side and of course better experience in Ligue 1 than Brest. And the problem with Brest is that they are best at home and have struggled away.
Lille are unbeaten and whilst surprises happen, we don’t expect that here.
Having said that Brest scoring 5 goals and not conceding in their last game is going to give them an upbeat step and should make the game very difficult for Lille.
But we are going to back the home side here to get the win and get their 3 wins in a row.
