Brest vs Lyon Prediction: Sportpesa Mega Jackpot Predictions
FRANCE: LIGUE 1 – ROUND 6
Date: 23 September 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 22:00 EAT
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Blé (Brest)
Brest pulled off a remarkable comeback, overturning a deficit to secure a 2-1 victory against Reims in an away match.
This result propelled them to the second position on the Ligue 1 table after the completion of matchday five.
They are just one point behind the league leaders, Monaco. This season’s strong start is in stark contrast to the previous campaign when it took them until matchday 15 to accumulate the same number of points. Notably, they managed to avoid relegation by a comfortable nine-point margin in that season.
With their promising start, Brest may now set their sights on their first-ever venture into European football, especially after manager Eric Roy suggested that their current momentum could potentially place them in the upper echelons of the league.
Their home form will play a crucial role in their bid for upward progression.
They return to Stade Francis-Le Blé, where they have only suffered one defeat in their last eight home league matches, winning six and drawing one.
On the other hand, Lyon is facing a disastrous campaign, despite it being only matchday six in Ligue 1.
Their season began with a 4-1 home defeat to PSG, which led to the sacking of manager Laurent Blanc.
Their fans voiced their frustration, stating that the team “doesn’t have the right to tarnish the shirt.” Lyon’s struggles continued as they could only manage a 0-0 draw against newly-promoted Le Havre at Groupama Stadium.
This winless streak has placed them in the relegation zone, with two draws and three losses.
Former Italian international defender Fabio Grosso has been appointed as the new manager after leading Frosinone to the Serie B title last season.
He will be hoping for an immediate turnaround from his team after observing their recent struggles from the stands. Lyon may draw hope from their strong historical performance in this fixture, having lost only one of the last 14 head-to-head matchups, with five wins and eight draws.
