Strasbourg vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 3rd February 2021
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Both of these sides lost their respective games last weekend and so both will be in search of 3 vital points. For Strasbourg their defeat against Reims at home was their first loss in 5 games and the club had found some form.
Strasbourg come into this game in 15th place but are only six points from the bottom three and they will feel like they could end up being safe but are not out of the woods just yet.
With just 3 wins at home from 11 games Strasbourg’s home form has not been good but prior to their latest defeat they had won 2 in a row and it looked like they could be turning a corner.
Brest are usually solid at home but they lost an explosive game 4-2 against Metz. It feels significant as the club have now lost 4 games in a row coming into this one.
Brest are two points in front of their hosts so could lose a place with defeat here and away from home the club have the 3rd worst record in Ligue 1. Brest have lost 3 games in a row on the road with their latest defeat coming against Reims.

Strasbourg vs Brest: Prediction
Brest’s confidence looks shot and Strasbourg’s home form had improved and they have had some good results over Brest in recent times and will fancy their chances to win this game.
We expect to see an open game and goals so that is a good market to follow. Strasbourg has the opportunity to move past Brest so that is good motivation for the home side.
Brest have really struggled on the road this season and we don’t see that changing for this game and we will back the home side to get all three points.
