Match Preview

The Pirate Team welcome RC Strasbourg Alsace to the Stade Francis-Le Blé on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. Brest look set to finish the season comfortably in midtable regardless of the outcome here. However, Strasbourg will be hoping a strong end of the season can close the gap on those above them to sneak into contention for European football next season.

Stade Brestois come into the match on a run of three wins in a row and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two league matches. They have picked up 13 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Ty Zefs won their last league match at home to Clermont Foot. Expected goals of 1.3 to 1.0 in favour of Brest indicates they didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. To win despite playing almost the entire match with only ten men was particularly impressive. The final score of the match was 2-0.

Steve Mounié scored the second goal of the game for Brest which puts him on eight goals in Ligue 1 this season. He is 3/1 to score against RC Strasbourg Alsace on Saturday.

Their opponent on Saturday, RC Strasbourg Alsace, come into the match on a run of five away league games without a win. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Coureurs shared the points in their last league match at home to Paris Saint Germain, in a six-goal thriller. Expected goals of 1.9 to 1.6 in favour of Paris Saint Germain indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. They actually took an early lead through Kevin Gameiro but found themselves 1-3 down with 15 minutes to play. To come back from there against the newly crowned French champions with a dramatic injury-time equaliser shows the mentality in this squad to never give up. The final score of the match was 3-3.

Kevin Gameiro’s goal moves him into double figures with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season. He is the 5.5/1 favourite to open the scoring once again on Saturday.

Stade Brestois team news

Youcef Belaïli was replaced midway through the second half due to an injury. Irvin Cardona looks the most likely player to replace him from the start here. The red card shown to Romain Del Castillo in their last league match against Clermont Foot means Brest will also be without him for today's match.

Stade Brestois are likely to otherwise stick with a winning team after beating Clermont Foot in their last league match.

RC Strasbourg Alsace team news

Jean-Ricner Bellegarde was booked in the opening stages of the match against PSG for diving. As he has now accumulated five yellow cards this season, Bellegard will be unavailable for Strasbourg here due to suspension. Injuries will rule out Ismaël Doukouré (patella tendon irritation) for the trip to the Stade Francis-Le Blé.

RC Strasbourg Alsace may otherwise look to stick with the side who battled back against Paris Saint Germain in their last league match.
