Reason For Brest vs St Etienne Predictions

  • Brest have had just one loss at home in almost a year, this came against PSG (1-2).
  • Saint-Étienne have lost each of their last five away games in Ligue 1.
  • Brest have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches while Sainté have netted in eight of their last nine away days in the league.

Brest love entertaining their own fans

Many teams in Ligue 1 benefit a lot off of their home form but few more than Brest. Les Ty’Zefs have picked up 21 of their 30 total points at the Stade Frances-le-Blé this season with them losing just one match at the ground in almost a year, that came against PSG (1-2). Their performances there really have been their crown jewels this season and with three wins in their last five there, they have every right to be optimistic ahead of this clash with Sainté. They have scored ten goals in their these five matches with just one non-penalty goal being conceded in this time. 

Brest’s form outside of their home performances generally hasn’t been exemplary but they been better recently. They’ve lost just one of their last five games and drew 0-0 with third place Rennes in their game last week. This was their first clean sheet in seven matches but with five of these coming on the road, it’s not hard to see why they’ve struggled. 

Sainté a sleeping giant at the moment

Saint-Étienne ended a three-match losing streak on Thursday as they beat fourth-tier Épinal 2-1. Les Verts haven’t been in great form recently so will be grateful for the win but they really should been have doing better against a team so far down the footballing pyramid. Sainté have won just one of their last eight league games with this coming against relegation battling Nîmes in mid-December. Outwith that they have been awful with defeats to Metz (1-3), Nantes (0-2) and Reims (1-3) coming in this time. 

They have been especially poor on the road in Ligue 1 with losses in each of their last five outings. They’ve conceded eleven goals in their last five away days and even though they’ve netted in four of these, they have a tough trip to Brest ahead of them.

Les Ty’Zefs to make the most of their home advantage?

Les Ty’Zefs have been superior at home recently and with Sainté struggling generally, we see the hosts getting the win here. The visitors have simply offered nothing on the road as of late and with them struggling against lower-league opposition on Thursday, we doubt they’ll get the three points. We’re going for a 2-1 win for Brest as les Verts have netted in eight of their last nine away games in Ligue 1.
