Match preview

The Pirate Team welcome Olympique Marseille to the Stade Francis-Le Blé on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Les Olympiens won’t have too many fond memories of their trips to Stade Francis-Le Blé. Their 11 visits here in Ligue 1 have seen six Stade Brestois wins, three draws and just two victories for Olympique Marseille. Although, those two victories have come in their last two visits here including a 2-3 win here at the start of last season.

Stade Brestois come into the match having picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six matches.

Les Ty Zefs won their last league match away to RC Lens. Expected goals of 1.8 to 0.4 in favour of Lens indicates Brest didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created.

Franck Honorat was the goalscoring hero for Brest. His goal against the run of play on the hour mark proved enough to secure all three points against Lens. However, Marco Bizot also deserves praise for his six saves including a big chance from point-blank range just minutes before the opening goal.

Honorat now has nine league goals this season for Brest and is 4.33/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 0-1.

Their opponent on Sunday, Olympique Marseille, come into the match on a run of three league games without a win. They have picked up seven points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Phocéens lost their last league match at home to AS Monaco FC. Expected goals of 0.9 to 0.7 in favour of Marseille indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match.

Les Olympiens attacking performance deserves some scrutiny here. They dominated the shot count 13 to five but created nothing of quality and only managed two shots on target. Lens created the game’s only big chance and it ultimately won them the game. The final score of the match was 0-1.

Dimitri Payet is Olympique Marseille’s top scorer with nine goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 2.87/1 to score against Stade Brestois on Sunday.
