The Pirate Team won their last league match at home to Olympique Lyonnais. Expected goals of 2.6 to 1.2 in favour of Lyon indicates Brest didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. La Team Pirate’s goal was living a charmed life with Lyon missing the target completely at close range with three of their four big chances in the game. This left them ripe for a sucker punch to snatch all three points, which Irvin Cardona delivered 15 minutes from time. The final score of the match was 2-1.
Martín Satriano has impressed with four goals in eight starts since arriving from Inter Milan. He is the 3/1 favourite to score against FC Metz on Sunday.
