Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 6-1 win over Bordeaux, Olympique Lyon will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Brest at Stade Francis-Le Ble on Matchday 33. Les Gones aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Brest. Since there are no fresh injury worries in the away team, Peter Bosz is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated les Girondins.
Les Pirates, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to St Etienne in their last league match. Since Brest have little to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on Lyon, who impressed in their last league fixture. As for the home team, Martin Satriano is back from suspension, while both Jeremy Le Douaron and Sebastien Cibois remain on the sidelines with injuries.

Highlighted Team (Lyon):
Commonly referred to as Lyon, Olympique Lyonnais is the French club which play their games at the Parc Olimpique Lyonnais with a capacity just a pinch short of 60,000. Lyon is one of the most popular clubs in France with a vast fan base on par with Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille.
The club achieved moderate success during the 1960s and 1970s led by the likes of Bernard Lacombe and Jean Djorkaeff, while the golden era of the French side came at the start of the new millennium when Lyon began to achieve greater success both in France and on the international level.
It was not until 2002 that Lyon won their first ever Ligue 1 title which sparked an ongoing national record-breaking streak of seven successive titles.
