Reason For Brest vs Lyon Predictions

Neymar was the difference on Sunday as Lyon lost 1-0 at home to PSG. It wasn’t a game filled with much quality as both teams slugged it out but Lyon’s inability to hit the target really harmed them as they offered hardly anyhing in the second half. Lyon only had 11% of the chances but PSG are always going to be tough opponents so they need to take the plaudits of keeping the match so tight and take it into this game against Brest.

Lyon currently sit a pretty disappointing 9th after six games with them winless in their last five despite an extremely strong start to the campaign. They looked so exciting in their opening two matches with nine goals scored past Monaco and Angers but they have only managed to score three goals since. Lyon have managed to limit the opposition’s chances this season with just an xGA of 5.31, the third best in Ligue 1, but they are without a clean sheet in their last five matches, which will need to be rectified here.

Lyon face this year’s promoted side with Brest hosting les Gones here. Brest fought out an extremely tight game on Saturday as they drew 2-2 with Bordeaux. Brest created a heap of chances but failed to have that clinical touch, which cost them in the end. This was Brest’s fourth draw of the season, which is good in some ways as it shows they have managed to match many Ligue 1 sides since their promotion but they really need to start putting wins on the board if they want to play in the league next year.

Brest will be hoping to make the most of their home advantage here as they have lost just one of their last 21 matches at the Stade Francis-Le Blé. This run does stretch into last year when Brest were in Ligue 2 but they are still to lose at home this season, despite hosting two of last year’s top ten clubs. 

Brest have kept clean sheets in their last two home matches and with Lyon so poor at the moment, we’re backing them to largely keep les Gones at bay here. Lyon have won just five of their last twelve away games, with them keeping clean sheets in just three of those matches. As a result we’re backing this match to end 1-1. Brest have a very good home record, while Lyon aren’t great on the road and find themselves in a horrible run of form. Brest have scored just five times this season but we’re backing them to get past this rather poor Lyon defence.
