Brest vs Lille Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in the Ligue 1 on Wednesday, 11 January 2023.
Lille might have started their campaign quite shaky. But they have made up for it a lot. As of now they are one of the most consistent teams in the league, and are going after a European spot.
Meanwhile, Brest are stuck in the relegation zone at the moment. With the season entering its second half, it is high time that they make efforts to put a safety cushion of points over the cut-off.
Brest vs Lille Head-to-head stats
Lille might be former champions, but they have had their fair share of battles with this opponent. Brest registered a 2-0 win in the latest encounter, and it is quite impressive that not once have they failed to score at this ground in h2h meetings since 1989.
Who will win the match between Brest and Lille?
Lille have been on a mission since the end of October. In fact, in the past the three months, barring three draws, they have a perfect winning record. They are determined to not let their slow start affect their objective of qualifying for Europe.
Meanwhile, Brest have just two wins to their name in league fixtures since August, and they currently are on a two-game losing streak in the Ligue 1. As things stand, former champions Lille are favorites to post the three points.
How many goals will be scored in the match?
Lille have failed to find the back of the net just once this whole season. They need a surplus of just three points to climb into top-five of the table. They are sure to produce a good game this Wednesday.
But at the same time they do not have a great h2h record against this opponent. Brest are desperate, and if only the recent years are considered they have a better record in h2h clashes.
It appears that we are about to witness a high-scoring affair.
Will Both Teams Score in the match?
Going back 35 years, not once have Lille kept a clean sheet at this venue against this foe. And even though Brest lost their latest appearance at home, they managed to score two goals.
Chances are high this Wednesday for goals to come from either end of the pitch.
Brest vs Lille Prediction
Lille have a perfect winning record after the World Cup break, barring a single draw. In fact, they have been unbeaten since October, and they are about to make an entry into the top-five of the table.
Reason being – they are placed seventh in the table, and need three points to climb level with the fifth-placed Monaco. And as fate would have it, Monaco are pitted against the sixth-placed Lorient, and one of the two will be dropping points.
Count on Lille to make full use of this opportunity. They are former champions of Ligue 1, and are not new to pressure. They also have the confidence of taking on a struggling Brest, who are on a losing streak in the league. Likely, Lille to Win placed at 2.00 odd is a great choice.
However, they have not fared well in h2h meetings over the years. Moreover, their defense on the road has not been top notch as well. A clean sheet looks unlikely for them. It seems that the Both Teams to Score wager at 1.75 odd would be a decent second tip.
Brest vs Lille Tips
Lille to Win @ 2.00
Both Teams to Score @ 1.75.
