Monaco vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: 1 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco will be searching for their second successive win on Sunday afternoon when they host Brest in Gameweek No 17.
Les Monegasques somehow found a way to come on top in the clash against Auxerre on Wednesday afternoon.
The 17-year-old substitute Eliesse Ben Seghir was the hero as he scored a brace after coming on for Wissam Ben Yedder after the half-time break.
It was the first-ever appearance in Ligue 1 for the youngster who will remember his debut forever. Head coach Philippe Clement will certainly give him a chance to shine at some point of the clash against Brest as well.
Monaco are now fifth in the league table and they have full right to dream of the top-three finish and a place in the UEFA Champions League next season.
However, we must say they did not quite shine four days ago at Auxerre since their three goals came from their lone three attempts on target in the 90 minutes of play.
On another note, Clement’s men should have a lot of space in the final third here against Brest who have revealed plenty of holes in a tough 2-4 loss at the hands of Lyon on Wednesday evening.
Brest fell into the bottom-four in the Ligue 1 ladder after the mid-week defeat. Counting the mid-season exhibitions, the team led by caretaker manager Bruno Grougi shipped ten goals in the last three matches.
Monaco vs Brest Head-to-head
- Interestingly, Monaco have a negative record in the head to head clashes against Brest, winning three and losing four of the previous seven.
- However, Monaco easily won each of the last three home outings against Brest, bagging ten goals in the process.
- Both teams scored just once in the previous four H2H affairs.
Monaco vs Brest Prediction
Monaco did not shine offensively on Wednesday despite scoring three goals. However, they are up against a leaky Brest side here and we expect the hosts to pick up another victory.
The previous H2H encounter between these rivals ended in Monaco’s 4-2 victory at Stade Louis Ii. We will back a similar scenario to happen this time around, meaning the pick is Monaco to win & Both Teams To Score at the odds of 2.87.
