Their latest fixture, which was in the Coupe de France, saw them run riot over lower-level side Bourg en Bresse with seven unanswered goals to their name.
Then again, Brest will make the excursion to Parc Olympique Lyonnais on the back of a sour 2-1 defeat on account of Lorient. In all honesty, the guests have been attempting to keep up triumphant momentum this season.
Miserably, they have only one win to flaunt from their previous five conflicts crosswise over different competitions.
It is additionally worth referencing that the visitors have barely been a risk on the road. They have not gotten success in any of their last five trips.
To exacerbate the situation, Lyon have stumbled in only two of their previous eight games before the homegroup. Given a long way from the convincing form that Brest are on, particularly in their excursions, Lyon are evaluating to be the outright top choice to leave away with the success in this one.
Besides, the hosts have been difficult to tame in the final third. Amazingly, they have scored two goals or more in five of their past seven games here. To top it off, both Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay have gotten nineteen goals between them back in the first division.
With Brest yielding nine times from their previous five outings on the road alone, anticipate that Lyon should rack up the goals tally with ease this week.
We have a match with the preference of the home team in the game Lyon vs Brest. This doesn’t mean a simple success as the team has just battled against weaker teams.
The two teams ought to get an opportunity to score, even though Lyon ought to make all the more attacking moves. In this way, we expect a game with various goals somewhat better than average.
Lyon are clear top choices here; they have never lost to Brest, and carry a superior run of form to the game. They will play at home, however, they have not been altogether agreeable at home, based on their results. They have not dealt with a clean sheet in their last six matches at home and have kept only one clean sheet in the last 24 French League cup matches.
On the flipside, Brest have additionally not been progressing admirably, and particularly away from home. They have not scored more than one goal in 10 of their last 11 away matches and we feel that may likewise come to play given this is typically not a high scoring match.
