Marseille vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 29 November 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Vélodrome (Marseille).
Marseille have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their last three games at Stade Velodrome. With Brest yet to settle in the first division, the visiting contingent’s chances of pulling off an upset are certainly looking bleak.

Marseille vs Brest Prediction
Marseille are back in the winning groove as of now and picked up their third successive win last week with a convincing 2-0 scorecard over Toulouse. The hosts have now been at the losing end just once in their previous five Ligue 1 games, garnering twelve points from a possible fifteen.
At the moment, the home side are sitting second in the cluster to PSG, albeit with a colossal eight deficit to scale.
On the other hand, Brest have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Presently, the visitors are without a win in their last three clashes on the trot. Their most recent matchup at home saw them hold Nantes to a 1-1 draw, while their previous game on the road against Amiens witnessed them at the losing end of a 1-0 scoreline.
It is also worth mentioning that the newly-promoted side have not been faring well in their outings in the top flight. The guests tasted success just once in their trips on the road so far. Furthermore, Brest have not got the better of this foe in any of their previous three visits here either. (W-0, D-1, L-2).
Taking into account that Marseille are unbeaten in their last six games on home soil as well, Brest have little or no chance of salvaging even a point in this one.
Furthermore, despite struggling to pick up the win away from home, Brest have been consistent in finding the back of the net, and have done so in five of their previous seven outings in all competitions. Meanwhile, Marseille have kept a clean sheet just once in their past five games here.
As such, expect, both teams to get their names on the scoresheet come Friday.
