Brest – Bordeaux : Preview & Prediction
Stade Brestois, 15th overall, will try to validate its ticket for the quarter-finals of this League Cup by leaving Bordeaux, 7th. The Breton club is very solid in Francis le Blé, bowing only once at home in 10 receptions against PSG (1-2), last November 9. Victorious from Strasbourg (5-0) on December 3, Brest went on with 1 short loss to Lille (1-0) before sharing the points with Nice (0-0) at home. The shape of the Bretons is therefore good. The Girondins de Bordeaux, on the other hand, have been in check for two days. The “Marine et Blanc” have just bowed back to back in Marseille (3-1) and more surprisingly against Strasbourg (0-1) at Matmut Atlantique. The band in Sousa has been trying to win away since October 5 and the Bordeaux have taken only 2 points in their last 4 trips to Lille (3-0), Nice (1-1), Reims (1-1) and Marseille (3-1).
Bordeaux is tough with 2 defeats in a row in Marseille and against Strasbourg.
Brest has suffered only 2 defeats in its last 28 receptions in official competitions.
Brest is undefeated against Bordeaux for 3 duels.
On September 21, the Breton club had managed to draw a draw in Gironde (2-2) in the league.
The Girondins remain on 4 trips without a win (2 draws and 2 losses).
Hooked at home in the league (2-2), Bordeaux should not do better in Brittany against a very solid opponent to Francis le Blé.
