Nantes vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 18th October 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Beaujoire.
Nantes have started their campaign poorly and have just 1 victory this season so far. This has put the club down in 16th place and they would very much welcome a win at the weekend.
The club have gone their last four games without victory and have lost back to back games coming into this one. Those defeats came against Lille and Nice where they conceded 4 goals in those two games.
A win would only move Nantes up a couple of places but they are just two points from the bottom three. Their only win this season did come at home when they beat Nimes.
Brest recorded a superb victory in their last game when they beat Monaco 1-0 who had started the season well. Brest understand their objective is to have a strong home record and try for the odd points away from home. This match could be a very tricky one for the club. Brest’s last away game ended in a 3-2 defeat at Angers.
Brest have four more points than their hosts and a win here would see them climb into the top 10. They are conceding too many goals though and have already let in 12, on the other hand they have scored 10 so far. All in all they are unpredictable but also exciting in these first moments of the Ligue 1 season.
Nantes vs Brest Head to Head
- The teams have not met at this stadium since 2010 when Brest won 4-1.
- The last time the clubs met was last season when they played out a 1-1 game.
- Their last 4 meetings in a row has seen both teams to score.
Nantes vs Brest: Prediction
Nantes are not in good form and have in fact not beaten Brest since 2007. At the same time the clubs have hardly met each other. Brest are a home team and may well struggle on the road this season and Nantes are really over due a win.
The home side have been called in for extra training and many see this as a make or break game that could even jeopardise the coach’s job.
Brest haven’t convinced us that they will pick up many points on the road even if they do have a decent record over Nantes and we will be backing the home side to get past the line and pick up three much needed points at the weekend.
