PSG vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes.
Mauricio Pochettino’s debut game in charge of PSG saw a draw at Saint Etienne and it wasn’t the best start to his new career. However because Lille lost it means that PSG went to 2nd with 36 points on goal difference.
PSG come into this game just 3 points behind league leaders Lyon. This will be Pochettino’s first game in charge at home and will mean a lot and he will be expecting his team to produce the goods.
PSG will be huge odds on to win and in Paris the champions have the 3rd best home record in the league and have won 6 from the 9 games played. They have lost twice at home but have won their last 2 games, their last game ended in a 4-0 win over Strasbourg.
Brest are in 10th and will be happy with their season so far. They ended a 3 game streak without a win by beating Nice 2-0 in midweek. A surprise win at the weekend could see them climb into the top 10 depending on other results.
On the road Brest has the 3rd to worst record though, they have lost six game from nine and are almost shipping 2 goals per game. They have earned just seven away from home.

PSG vs Brest Prediction
Pochettino’s first game at home and the fact that PSG could make roads into Lyon’s lead you don’t need more motivation than that to see a PSG victory at the weekend.
PSG will be huge odds on so we will need to look into different markets. It may be worth backing both teams to score as PSG have looked a little leaky recently but this should be an easy victory and comfortable victory for the home side.
These two teams are simply on different levels and whilst Brest are a good side at home they have really been poor on the road this season.
