Brest vs. Marseille Match Analysis and Prediction

oAfter having their first match of the season postponed due to coronavirus fears, Marseille is back in action this weekend. The side takes on the bottom side Brest on Sunday at the Stade Francis-Le Ble with kickoff at 10 pm.

Marseille’s last outing dated back six months ago ended in a 2-2 draw to side Amiens. A lot has changed over the six months with their rivals PSG reaching to Champions League final to only 1-0 to side Bayern Munich.

The loss might have excited the Marseille fans who took to the streets in a show of disrespect and banter to their rivals. Andrea Villa managed to finish second to their rivals before the season curtailment. The side was 12 points away from the Ligue 1 champions.

With Champions League football in the bag for the side, Villa will be keen on shortening the gap against the title defenders. The side ended their 2019-20 campaign with only one loss in their past 17 matches in the league.

The Pirates had a rough start to their new campaign after falling to a 4-0 thrashing to side Nimes. The loss marked a new record for the side who failed to keep a clean sheet in 10 of their last 11 matches in the league. The only exception dates back to February following the goalless draw to side Rennes.
