Brest vs St Etienne Match Preview
St Etienne travel to Brest for their Matchday 25 clash on Sunday afternoon, just days after beating Epinal (1-2) and making their way to Coupe de France semi-finals. They’ll now hope to build on the Cup success and escape the immediate danger zone in Ligue 1, sitting just four points clear of 18th placed Nimes.
Les Verts have struggled for points and their woeful streak of seven losses was only interrupted with a 2-1 win over Nimes in front of the home fans, where an early brace from Wahbi Khazri proved enough for all three points. They will need more and Claude Puel will be well-aware of the fact, as his men look to jump the rivals.
Brest have seen a three-match winless streak since early February as Dijon (3-0) snatched all three while they held off Bordeaux (1-1) and Rennes (0-0). They’ve still been in a better place and this was especially obvious at Francis-Le Ble Stadium, where they bagged three wins and three draws in six games since November.
La Team Pirate regularly scored goals along the way and will surely be very motivated to keep hold of such a streak, looking to build towards the mid-table in a busy chase. They haven’t been as rock-solid at the back lately, though, and this could mean a more exciting contest on the day.
We still feel they’ll be able to turn it their way and we’re now going for a Home win at an eye-catching 15/8 with bet365, which comes off as more than just a lively longshot and has caught the eye of many value seekers already.
Brest should have to outgun the rivals to secure the points, though, and with that in mind – we’re also hoping for a high-scoring occasion at Francis-Le Ble Stadium, where Over 2.5 Goals FT comes at 21/20 with BetVictor.
