Lille vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th February 2021
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
It’s possible that the league leaders of this week could be in 3rd place if PSG and Lyon have won, and this is another must win game for Lille whatever the other results have been.
Currently Lille are 1st but PSG and Lyon will play their respective games a day earlier on Saturday. Lille will be the odds on favourites at home to win this game and on paper that is what should happen.
Lille has 54 points coming into this match and are 2 points ahead of Lyon and 3 points ahead of PSG. Lille have won their last seven games in a row and are in fantastic form.
At home Lille have won 8 games from 12 with just one defeat so far this season and their last home game ended in a 1-0 win over Dijon.
Brest are 24 points behind their hosts and last weekend they beat Bordeaux 2-1 at home and they have 30 points coming into this duel.
Brest are unbeaten in their last 2 games and are 8 points from a European position. Away from home Brest have not performed good and have lost 8 from 12 games. They are almost conceding 2 goals per game on the road and their last away game ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw at Strasbourg.
Lille vs Brest: Head to Head
- Last season Lille beat Brest in this fixture 1-0.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Brest beat Lille 3-2.
- 5 from the last 8 meetings has witnessed over 2.5 goals.
Lille vs Brest: Prediction
Our choice here is to see Lille win the game but they are 1.50 and maybe we can find better value elsewhere.
Lille are like a machine and although Brest have caused them a few problems over the past seasons Lille usually gets the job done. It’s interesting though that Lille have only lost 2 games so far this season and one of them was to Brest.
But there is something special about this Lille team when they are at home and we believe they can score quite a few goals and get a nice win at the weekend.
Lille vs Brest Bet Tips:
Handicap: Lille to beat Brest with a -1 goal start at 2.25 (5/4)
