Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Clermont, Strasbourg will look to return to winning ways in the Ligue 1 when they face Brest on Matchday 26. Le Racing are eager to escape the danger zone, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Jean-Eudes Aholou returns from suspension, while all Diarra, Nyamsi, Bellegarde, and Kawashima continue to miss out with injuries.
Brest, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, and given their three-game losing run in the French top flight, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side. Mahdi Camara is banned for the match, while all Chardonnet, Del Castilllo, Herelle, Honorat, Mounie, and Pereira Lage miss out with injuries. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but home win should be considered this time out.
Highlighted Player (Steve Mounié):
Steve Mounie is a Beninese footballer who plays for Huddersfield Town as a striker. Mounie is a product of Montpellier youth academy and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the blue and orange shirt in Ligue 1 at senior level.
After scoring 14 goals in 37 appearances for la Paillade in the French elite division, the 190-cm-tall attacker moved to Huddersfield Town in 2017, but it has to be noted that he spent the 2015/2016 season at Nimes as a loan player. Steve Mounie signed a four-year deal with the Terriers and he made his competitive debut for the club on August 12, 2017, scoring a brace in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The attacker who was born in Parakou (Benin) on September 29, 1994 will represent the Benin national team at the 2019 Africa Cup of nations. Mounie scored his first ever goal for the national team in a 2-1 win over South Sudan in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
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.
