Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
In-form Brest will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Toulouse in the Ligue 1 round 8. Brest are eyeing fifth consecutive clean sheet in the French top flight and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence. Midfielder Achraf Dari continues to miss out through illness, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. Les Pitchouns, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 Metz, but beating Brest at Stade Francis-Le Ble is easier said than done.
A close encounter is on the horizon and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. All Zakaria Aboukhlal, Oliver Zanden, and Ibrahim Cissoko are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the visiting team. It has to be noted that both sides managed to find the net in each of their last four league matches in the French elite division.
Highlighted Team (Brest):
Founded in 1950, Brest (Stade Brestois) are a French football club that compete in the Ligue 1. La Team Pirate welcome their opponents at Stade Francis-Le Ble, the venue which was opened back in 1922. The capacity of the stadium is 15,931, but on August 8, 1986 21,619 watched the game between Brest and Olympique Marseille.
The club’s home colours are red and white, with the team wearing black kit when playing on the travels. Brest’s third kit is white. La Team Pirate, who made it to the French Cup on two occasions (1982/83 and 2014/15), have rivalries with fellow clubs from Bretagne: Rennes, Lorient, Nantes, Guingamp and Vannes.
The likes of Bernard Lama Stephane Guivarch, Paul le Guen, David Ginola and Frank Ribbery are the most notable footballers who played for the club. Bayern Munchen legend Frank Ribery scored 3 goals in 35 appearances for Brest in the national championship.
