Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 10/11 @ Pribet

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at the top of the Ligue 1 table, Brest will welcome Nice to the Stade Francis-Le Ble on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Brest might have spent the majority of last season at the heart of a Ligue 1 relegation scrap, the Pirates have continued on a real domestic flurry this time around. Last seen mounting a dramatic late comeback away at defending champions PSG as they snatched a 2-2 stalemate, Eric Roy’s side have cemented their spot as one of Europe’s ultimate surprise packages this year. Riding what has been a famous wave of momentum, the one-time Nice boss will be desperate to get one over on his former employers and make another statement. Opening this weekend’s fixtures battling it out in the Champions League spots, Brest are unbeaten in all of their previous 10 appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to November 5th. Signing off 2023 with a 4-0 romp at home against Lorient, Sunday’s hosts have also gained a fearsome reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third. In fact, Brest have won all of their last three showdowns at the Stade Francis-Le Ble by an aggregate score of 7-0.

As for the visitors, although Nice might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign in the midst of a real struggle, Francesco Farioli’s men have come roaring back in some style. Although the Eaglets might be seeking a minor miracle in their bid to dethrone defending champions PSG, they are sat firmly on the driving seat to punch a famous Champions League ticket in 2024. Last seen putting in another rugged display as they secured a 1-0 victory against Metz, the former Alanyaspor boss has seen his squad win four of their previous five domestic appearances across all competitions. While Nice might have extended on their Coupe de France adventure on January 21st as they picked up an action-packed 3-2 victory away at Bordeaux, Sunday’s guests have shown some recent top-flight issues on the road. Including a 3-1 drumming against Le Havre last month, Farioli’s men have lost all of their previous three Ligue 1 matchups away from the Allianz Riviera. In what could prove to be an enjoyable affair, we are backing chances to fall at both ends of the pitch.
