Reason for Brest vs Lyon Predictions
Brest managed to keep out league leaders Lille in their last match to register their fourth straight unbeaten match. For the mid-table side, that was a massive result, and it came with their first clean sheet in eight games and only the second in 14 games. Both sides have scored in four of Brest’s last five matches, and the four games have each yielded over 2.5 goals. Brest has been impressive in attack, registering at least two goals in four of their last five matches, and are unbeaten in three league matches. However, they have just one win and four losses in their previous seven league matches. Ten of Brest’s last 12 Ligue 1 games at home have produced over 2.5 goals, with both sides scoring in nine of them, and only two of the 12 saw the team keep clean sheets. Romain Faivre is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
On their part, Lyon suffered a shock 2-1 loss to Montpellier, putting a major hiccup on their title hopes. That loss saw Lyon drop by a place, to third in the standings. It was Montpellier’s second win over Lyon in the season and kept Lyon’s tally at over 2.5 goals in four of five matches. They have two clean sheets in the last five games, and both sides have scored in the remaining three. In the previous ten league matches, Lyon has won seven, scored two or more in seven, and lost just two. The loss to Montpellier in the first meeting of the season remains the team’s only away defeat this season. They go to this game unbeaten in 10 away league matches, where they’ve won seven and drawn three. Thiago Mendes has found the right role in the team, he is doing great, and it is difficult for this guy to take the ball away. Many clubs are interested in him. Memphis Depay is the best player for the home side, he has excellent dribbles, his greatest strength is speed, which makes this guy unstoppable.
Lyon is the favorite in this match, the goal is to attack the title, so they have no right to make a mistake.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
