Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Brest win

Odds: 8/15 @ BetUS

Looking to take a giant step towards a famous Champions League ticket, Brest will welcome Metz to the Stade Francis-Le Ble on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Brest might have found themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap last season, the Pirates are enjoying a stunning Ligue 1 romp this time around. Marking their return from March’s international break with a 1-0 victory away at Lorient, Eric Roy’s men are now sat firmly in the driving seat to clinch a famous Champions League ticket. Continuing to receive a string of plaudits from across the continent, the one-time nice boss finds the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat only behind defending champions PSG in the title chase, Brest have lost just one of their previous 16 Ligue 1 appearances – a run that stems all the way back to November 5th. Smelling the chance to make another statement here, Sunday’s hosts have also gained a reputation for their rugged performances at the back. It is worth highlighting, Roy’s men have shipped just two goals in their previous six top-flight contests.

As for the visitors, although Metz might have secured a Ligue 1 return this season, it is no secret that the Maroons are tipped as a landslide relegation contender this time around. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat four points adrift of safety, Laszlo Boloni’s men face a real uphill battle over the final couple of months. Last seen marking their return from March’s international break with an action-packed 5-2 loss at home against Monaco, the Lorraine-based outfit will certainly be bracing themselves for another major challenge on Sunday lunchtime. Heading into the fortnight interval with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Reims, Metz have won just a pair of their previous 15 straight appearances across all competitions – a rut that stems all the way back to November 26th. Likewise, suffering a 1-0 loss when they welcomed Brest to the Stade Saint-Symphorien for their reverse showdown on December 10th, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
