Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade Oceane will host Sunday’s football game between Le Havre and Brest, the two teams who are determined to secure the Ligue 1 survival. The newcomers played out a 2-2 draw with Montpellier in their opener, with substitute Samuel Grandsir scoring a late equalizer. The 27-year-old midfielder is pushing for a recall to the starting XI, while forward Christopher Operi misses out through suspension.
Les Pirates, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Lens, but beating Le Havre on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils in Sunday’s encounter. Defender Adrien Lebeau should be the only absentee in the away team. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two teams shared the spoils, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on draw.
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.
