Lorient vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 7 November 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir.

Lorient will rely on their fine home record (three wins and two draws in five games) but their form does not suggest a positive outcome here against Brest. The visitors will enter the match in much higher spirits and we believe they have what it takes to use the momentum and snatch the second consecutive victory.

Lorient vs Brest Head-to-head

  • Brest will play against tradition here as they have rarely done well in the away clashes against Lorient.
  • Lorient won 11, drew 3, and lost 1 of 15 home matches against Brest.
  • Interestingly, both teams scored in eight of the last nine head-to-head affairs.
  • It is also worth noting that these two teams met each other in a pre-season friendly this July when Lorient claimed a 3-2 win.

Lorient vs Brest Predictions & Analysis

Brest finally claimed their maiden win of the season last weekend when they shocked Monaco 2-0 at home.

Steve Mounie and Franck Honorat were on target for the team led by Michel Der Zakarian on the occasion.

The Armenian manager can be thrilled with the form his men have shown in the last several weeks.

Brest have really stepped up since the previous international break. They will come into this Sunday’s clash against Lorient unbeaten in three straight league matches.

The run includes a 1-1 draw at Lille in the team’s previous away fixture. Brest will have a nice opportunity to keep such a phenomenal form going here against Lorient who have not quite been enjoying their best shape of late.

Unlike their rivals who have shown their best performance of the campaign last weekend, Lorient suffered a demolishing 4-0 defeat in a horrendous showing away at Strasbourg.

The hosts are in a clear crisis as it was their fifth consecutive match without a victory in the Ligue 1.

Key Stats for Betting

  • Lorient are winless in five successive Ligue 1 games.
  • They conceded four goals in two of the last three league matches.
  • Brest are unbeaten in three consecutive league affairs.
