Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade Auguste-Delaune will host Sunday’s football game between Reims and Brest, the two top-table sides. Reims have been making progress week by week and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to win this match. With no fresh injury worries to report, head coach William Still is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Metz before the international break.
Les Pirates, on the other hand, head into Sunday’s clash following a goalless draw with Rennes. Brest are eyeing their third win of the process, but seeing that Reims have turned their Stade Auguste-Delaune into a real fortress, home win should be considered. As for the away team, Mathias Pereira Lage continues to miss out with a hamstring injury. You should bear in mind that the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in their last encounter at the venue.
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.
