Saint-Etienne vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 18th August 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Saint Etienne will be the favourites to win this game there is no doubt about that as they take on newly promoted Brest at the weekend.
Saint Etienne who are aiming for a top 6 finish as that is their objective this season got their Ligue 1 campaign off to a great start by beating Dijon 2-1. They could in theory go top of the league if they can score a few goals in this game, which will be their first home game of the season. If they show the same type of home consistency that they did last season then they will be hard to beat in front of their home fans.
Brest did well last weekend in their return to Ligue 1. They were at home and they drew 1-1 with Toulouse. Brest are in that situation where if they get a point they will be happy, but they will understand that this match will be a very tough one to get any positive result from.

The teams have only met once before in recent history. It was back in 2013 and Saint Etienne who were away from home won 1-0.
Saint-Etienne vs Brest Prediction
Saint Etienne are odds on but at the same time they are around 1.62 which is still decent value to back them in at. We expect them to have most of the ball and being at home the crowd will be behind them.
Brest will spend the majority of the time in defense and we simply can’t see them keeping up. For us this is one of the best bankers of the weekend in Ligue 1, and we will back the home side to win and back the correct score.
