Brest vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 20 August 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Blé (Brest).
PSG aim for their third win in Ligue 1 when they travel to Stade Brest on Friday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s boys started the season with back-to-back wins, but they are yet to hit top gear. Injuries and extended rest period for players returning from Euro 2020 has affected the team fluidity, yet the 2-1 win against Troyes and 4-2 win against Strasbourg are welcome results.
Kylian Mbappe, amidst the transfer rumors linking to Real Madrid, started both games, but he failed to find the net on both occasions. At the same time, Mauro Icardi looked in good touch and scored in both games.
Lionel Messi and fellow summer signing Sergio Ramos are still on the sidelines, though the Argentine could make a surprise appearance on Friday.
On the other hand, Brest started their campaign on back-to-back draws. Both were tricky fixtures with the opponents being Lyon and Rennes.
This is a decent platform to build on, though another positive result look unlikely for the team that escaped relegation by a solitary point last season.
Brest finished the 2020/21 season with a 0-2 defeat to none other than PSG, at the tail end of a poor run that saw them picking just 1 win from 10 games. This is further extended to 12 with the latest stalemates.
Brest vs PSG Head-to-head
- PSG are unbeaten in the last 15 head-to-head matches against Brest across all competitions.
- It is worth noting that the latest 9 are wins for the Parisians.
- Also, 5 of the last 6 saw PSG netting over 2.5 team goals.
Brest vs PSG Prediction
As I mentioned at the introduction, this is decent start for Brest by their standards, but they do not have the firepower to get over a team like PSG.
Without a doubt, the Parisians are odds on to win here and bookies have priced them at the lowest possible odds at 1.20.
Punters are forced to look elsewhere with decent options in HT/FT and handicap bets.
However, we recommend going with over 1.5 goals in the first half as well as PSG to win with a 3 or more-goal margin
