Brest vs. Lyon Match Analysis and Prediction

Lyon will seek to extend their unbeaten streak to five games when they travel to Stade Francis-Le Ble to face Brest on Wednesday with kickoff at 10 pm.

After finishing just a point clear of the relegation playoff place last season, Brest will be looking to extend their stay in the top flight of French football.

With six games left in Ligue 1, Wednesday’s hosts look set to survive in their division, with 10 points separating them from the bottom three and two places above the drop zone.

Although they are all but assured of finishing in the top half of the table, Michel Der Zakarian will be challenging his side to go unbeaten at home for the remainder of the campaign and thus end the season on a high note.

Brest’s recent form has been mixed, with their last six matches resulting in three defeats, two wins, and a draw, but their most recent outing saw St Etienne surrender a lead and leave Brittany empty-handed.

The visitors lifted their spirits by thrashing Bordeaux 6-1 on Sunday. Peter Bosz’s charges ran riot at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, with Moussa Dembele and Karl Toko Ekambi netting braces. At the same time, Lucas Paqueta and former Brest player Romain Faivre also put their names on the scoresheet in the comprehensive victory.
