Saint-Etienne vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 16 April 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Etienne are growing impatient and desperate each passing match-day. They are placed 18th in a table of 20, and are in the clutches of the relegation zone. They have been on a long winless run, and they are letting in goals in huge numbers.

They need to climb over the 17th placed Clermont, if they need to avoid getting the boot. But they do not have much time remaining to do that. The team will have to climb higher in the remaining seven match-days.

Meanwhile, Brest are placed rather comfortably in the mid-table. They have had issues with form and defense, but definitely not up to the extent as that of their counterparts.

Moreover, they have fared quite well in their most recent road fixtures, and importantly, they have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years.

By the looks of things, expect a win for Brest this weekend at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
