Reason For Brest vs Bordeaux Predictions

  • The hosts are making a European push ahead of this week’s clash.
  • The hosts have a terrible record in this competition – dating back to 2004.
  • Brest have won none of their last 7 home games in the League Cup.
  • Bordeaux have 16 goals against the bottom 6 in Ligue 1 this term.

Bordeaux Pushing for Europe

There’s quite a gap between these two sides ahead of Wednesday’s Coupe de la Ligue clash. While hosts Brest are battling against the drop, the visitors are on the European trail. There’s a lengthy gap between them in Ligue 1, but will we see that again when the pair meet in this League Cup meeting?

It’s been a while since the visitors were dominating domestically, with their last League Cup success coming over 10 years ago, back when they were the true force in Ligue 1. Can Bordeaux roll back the years to the pre-PSG era by winning the final edition of this competition?

Brest’s 15-year Struggle

Brest have been handed a home draw in this round, but that doesn’t suggest they can make a dent in an awful record in this competition. Brest last claimed a victory in the Coupe de la Ligue back in 2004, when they won at third-tier side Wasquehal. Since then, there have been 19 games which Brest have failed to win within 90 minutes.

In that time, their best effort has been four victories on penalties. It’s hardly a glorious record in this competition for the home side, who have gone through in just one of the last seven ties in this competition played at their ground. Does that open things up for the visitors?

Brest’s Woes to Continue

The home side look primed for another bad result, especially with a relegation fight to focus on. The hosts are on an awful run in this competition, while this is the kind of game which Bordeaux tend to do well in. They’ve won all of their clashes away to the bottom quarter of the division, scoring 16 goals across their clashes with the bottom six this term.

Following that form, we are siding with a Bordeaux side who have won six of their last nine in this competition. That’s a fine record compared to the state of the hosts, so we are going with a Bordeaux victory as our prediction in this one. We are also backing them to continue a fine scoring record against poor sides, as we’re backing a 3-1 away victory for a Bordeaux outfit who have seen both teams score in six of their last seven.
