Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Buoyed by a historical 3-1 win over league leaders PSG, Lorient will look to retain their spot in top ten when they take on Brest on Sunday. Les Merlus are high on confidence ahead of Matchday 34, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Midfielder Bamo Meite is banned for the match, while all Igor Silva, Vito Mannone, Jean-Victor Makengo, Theo Le Bris, and Julien Laporte remain in the recovery room.
The visitors, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure the Ligue 1 survival. Brest are eager to escape the relegation zone, but beating Lorient away from home is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Forward Karamoko Dembele remains on the sidelines with an ankle problem. In the first half of the season Lorient defeated Brest 2-1.
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.
