Nice vs Brest: Match preview
This round brings us an interesting match between Nice and Brest at the Allianz Riviera Stadium. It is difficult to predict at first and without further analysis who will celebrate in this duel. For us it is clear that both teams will try to get the desired points. Brest will have to withstand a lot of pressure from the home crowd.
Nice team news:
The team from the Cote d’Azur is in solid form, so even their placement in Europe is unattainable. They are currently in ninth place, but their fifth-ranked Monaco only escapes two points.
In the last round, they easily triumphed in a visit to Toulouse, with the team of the same name holding firmly last place in League 1. However, a much more significant triumph was the one against Lyon on their “Allianz Riviera”.
Interestingly, just three days before that win, they lost to the same Cup rival, also at home. Watching the last 10 appearances, this club has won 4 times, 3 of which have been at home.
Probable lineup: Benitez; Herelle, Danilo, Dante, Sarr; Claude Maurice, Thuram-Ulien, Lees Melou; Ounas, Dolberg, Maolida.
Brest team news:
Brest has struggled to survive, but is now in a much safer zone as they are ranked 13th, having lost only once in the previous six rounds. To them, staying in the elite is a major goal, and if they continue to play like this, they should have no problem making that venture.
In the last three games they have not lost, after two consecutive draws, with Bordeaux and Rennes, they have managed to beat St. Etienne.
In their last 10 games this team has won 4 times, scoring 16 times in total, which is an average of 1.6 goals per game.
Probable lineup: Larsonneur; Belaud, Duverne, Chardonnet, Perraud; Lasne, Battocchio, Belkebla, Grandsir; Cardona; Charbonnier.
Although Brest is only three points less than Nice, we believe that the host team is more serious and will record a win. In the first part of the season there were no goals in the match in Brest, so there will not be many of them now.
