Ligue 1 Preview: Paris Saint-Germain v Brest

SoccerNews in Ligue 1 16 May 2013


Newly crowned Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain welcome Stade Brest to Parc des Princes for their final home game of the season.

Victory over Lyon on Sunday gave PSG the third title in their history and they will be keen to celebrate with their own supporters against bottom of the table Brest.

Jeremy Menez’s goal clinched the title for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, moving them seven points clear of Marseille at the top of the table with two games remaining.

Brest will be playing their football in the second division next season having had a miserable time this year, they have only won eight games all season and just three on their travels.

In their last 20 league outings they have picked up three wins and two draws, and they are currently on a run of nine straight defeats, scoring just two goals in that time.

Brest’s impotency in front of goal is highlighted best with the fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 27 goals this
season for PSG, that is just three less than the whole Brest squad have
managed this season

The two clubs have only ever met five times before with PSG unbeaten, winning four and drawing one. The last time they met this season PSG strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Ibrahimovic, Kevin Gameiro and a Bernard Mendy own goal.

Lucas Mouro is PSG’s only injury worry ahead of the game, they will also be without suspended captain Thiago Silva but do welcome back Salvatore Sirigu and Marco Veratti from suspension.

The task ahead of Brest is made even harder by the fact that they are without seven players for their trip to the capital. Alexandre Alphonse, Brahim Ferradj, Charlison Benschop, Johan Martial, Paul Baysse, Joan Hartock and Andre Auras are all missing for Corentin Martins’ side.
