Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Lyon and Metz, Brest will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Clermont on Matchday 35. Les Pirates obviously want to finish the season in style, but Sunday’s clash is of big importance for the visiting team. The likes of Franck Honorat, Jeremy Le Douaron, and Sebastien Cibois have been struggling with injuries of late, and the trio is widely expected to miss the Clermont game as well.
The newcomers, on the other hand, are fighting tooth and nail to avoid relegation back to Ligue 2. Les Lanciers want this win more than Brest, and we predict that they are going to pick up vital three points from Sunday’s game. Both Bayo and Da Cunha are pushing for a start after the duo got their names on the scoresheet in a 2-2 draw with Angers, while defender Alidu Seidu is back from suspension.
Highlighted Player (Steve Mounié):
Steve Mounie is a Beninese footballer who plays for Huddersfield Town as a striker. Mounie is a product of Montpellier youth academy and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the blue and orange shirt in Ligue 1 at senior level.
After scoring 14 goals in 37 appearances for la Paillade in the French elite division, the 190-cm-tall attacker moved to Huddersfield Town in 2017, but it has to be noted that he spent the 2015/2016 season at Nimes as a loan player. Steve Mounie signed a four-year deal with the Terriers and he made his competitive debut for the club on August 12, 2017, scoring a brace in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The attacker who was born in Parakou (Benin) on September 29, 1994 will represent the Benin national team at the 2019 Africa Cup of nations. Mounie scored his first ever goal for the national team in a 2-1 win over South Sudan in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
