Brest vs. Nantes – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 23.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

It will be the first clash between Brest and Nantes in Ligue 1 since March 1991 (1-0 for Brest) and the first clash in all competitions since February 2010 (4-1 for Brest in Ligue 2).

Brest’s 2-1 home loss versus high-flying PSG in their last Ligue 1 (L1) outing ended a run of six straight home fixtures without defeat in the top-flight (W3, D3). Encouragingly though, the hosts have failed to score in just two of their last 25 home league fixtures across France’s top two divisions (W16, D7, L2). Mathias Autret has scored two L1 goals for Brest this season, both before the break. Here ‘Les Brestois’ face Nantes, hoping to gain an edge in their balanced top-flight H2H home record (W4, D2, L4 – GF 13 GA 13). To achieve that, they may want to keep it tight late on, as over half (three) of the five home league goals they’ve conceded so far arrived after the hour mark.

Five of Brest’s seven L1 home games saw them go into the interval with a clean sheet. Each of Nantes’ six L1 away fixtures to date have featured under 1.5 goals at half-time. At all venues, each of the previous five competitive H2Hs have featured over 2.5 goals.

For their part, Nantes come into this league clash seeking to end a run four consecutive losses in the league. This game could be a tight clash though, especially as all but one of their last 13 league games (win/loss) have been settled by a one-goal margin, while 64.29% of those featured a 1-0 scoreline either way. Nantes’ striker Moses Simon has netted each of his two league strikes so far from the 81st minute onwards. However, scoring first in this game could be vital to Nantes’ chances of turning their fortunes around, as ‘Les Canaries’ have lost each of the three L1 away games in which they conceded the match opener this term.
