Brest vs Lille: prediction for the Ligue 1 match
Brest picked up first points only at the end of October. Hosts recorded a victory over Monaco (2:0) and after that everything went great for them. After 21 rounds The Red-Whites have six victories and seven draws, which brought 25 points and a 13th spot in the standings.
After the victory of 29ers over Marseille (2:1) hosts are in a slump - three defeats and one draw against Troyes (1:1). Michel Der Zakarian's team got off to a confident start in the French Cup, they beat Dinan (1:0, penalties) and Bordeaux (3:0).
Bain, Belkebla, Del Castillo, Said, Satriano and Cibois won't feature in the match.
Lille are having a mediocre season in Ligue 1, in 21 rounds The Dogs recorded only eight victories and eight draws, which brought 32 points and an 8th spot in the standings. We should note that team has terrible defensive record, they conceded way too many goals.
In three most recent matches The Red-Whites recorded a victory over Bordeaux (3:2), drew to Marseille (1:1) and beat Lorient (3:1) at home. Champion of France also put up a wonderful performance in the Champions League and secured a top spot in the group stage.
Ben Arfa, Jardim andPied won't play in the upcoming match.
Lille are unbeaten on seven consecutive away matches
This bet played in 2 out of 4 most recent matches of the hosts
This bet played in 3 out of 5 most recent matches of Brest
In our opinion, in their current condition hosts won't be able to compete against the current Ligue 1 champion. 29ers managed to step up after a poor start, but team is not in the best physical form now, so even a draw will be a very good result for them. We think that Dogs will pick up the three points today.
Our prediction - Lille to win
We think that Brest will choose a defensive formation for the match. Lille are getting closer to the European competitions zone, which might be the best motivation for the team.
Our second bet is on total under 2,5 goals
