Lyon vs Brest Predictions
- Lyon have won their last five Ligue 1 matches.
- Brest have lost four of their last five league outings on the road.
- However, Les Pirates have managed to score in four of those games.
Lyon to Ease Past Les Pirates
Lyon should back-up their fine 0-1 weekend success at PSG when they host Brest on Wednesday evening, but it may not be complete plain sailing for Les Gones.
Philana Kadawere bagged the crucial winner for Lyon at Parc Des Princes on Sunday night, which meant his side leapfrogged PSG into second in the table.
This could well be the season that the Parisian’s stranglehold over French football is broken and if that’s the case, it will surely be either leaders Lille or Lyon who take full advantage.
Les Gones are in superb form and go into this week’s clash against Brest at Groupama Stadium in search of a sixth consecutive victory. A season out of Europe appears to have done Rudi Garcia’s men the world of good and it’s easy to see why the bookmakers have chalked them up at around 1/3 to land the spoils here.
That’s also due to the fact that Brest have lost four of their last five starts on the road, however the visitors are capable of giving Lyon a game here – particularly if the hosts are a little spent after their superb showing on Sunday.
Brest will be in good spirits themselves after winning four of their last five Ligue 1 matches overall, and while their travelling record is poor, they have managed to score in four of their last five away games.
So, although we expect Lyon to come through this fixture with a bit in hand, it may well be worth backing goals at both ends too – as has been the case in six of the last seven meetings between the teams.
