Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/5 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an enjoyable showdown from the Groupama Stadium on Sunday night, Lyon will host Champions League contenders Brest.

Starting with the hosts, while Lyon might have opened the New Year at the heart of an infamous Ligue 1 relegation scrap, Les Gones have come roaring back in some style. Last seen putting in another dominant display as they cruised their way to a 3-1 romp away at Nantes, Pierre Sage’s men find the mood in their camp at a season-high. Heading into March’s international break with an action-packed 3-2 victory against Toulouse, the French giants have lost just one of their previous 12 appearances across all competitions. Skyrocketing up the Ligue 1 standings and now leading the chase to book a top-half finish, Lyon have collected 10 points from their previous four top-flight showdowns. Likewise, extending on their Coupe de France adventure earlier in the month as they breezed their way to a 3-0 romp against Valenciennes, Lyon have notched a trio of goals in three of their previous four domestic appearances.

As for the visitors, continuing on what has been an iconic Ligue 1 romp this season, Brest are sat firmly in the driving seat to punch a famous Champions League ticket. Last seen picking up what was an action-packed 4-3 victory at home against Metz, Eric Roy’s men have received a string of plaudits from across the continent. In fact, the Pirates have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous 17 Ligue 1 appearances – a purple patch that stems all the way back to November 5th. Although Sunday’s guests might have recorded just one clean sheet from any of their last four top-flight showdowns, Brest will be excited by their rugged performances on the road. Including a routine 3-0 romp away at Strasbourg on February 24th, Roy’s side have suffered just a single Ligue 1 clean sheet away from the Stade Francis-Le Ble over the past five months. In what could be an enjoyable affair this weekend, we are backing both teams to find the net.
