Brest – Metz : Preview & Prediction
Brest, after an encouraging start (1 win and 2 draws in the first three days), marks the pace since August 31. The Breton club has not won since that date and is on a long black series of 5 games without a win (3 draws and 2 losses). Thus, Larsonneur’s partners have just been humiliated in the Principality against AS Monaco (4-1), a heavy defeat that follows 3 draws against Rennes (0-0), Bordeaux (2-2 ) and Lyon (2-2). Undefeated to Francis the Wheat, the current 18th in Ligue 1 hopes a victory to extricate himself in the relegation zone. FC Metz, equal points with his opponent of the day, is just ahead in 17th place. The Lorrainers seem better after 4 defeats in a row in Angers (3-0) against PSG (0-2), Bordeaux (2-0) and Amiens face (1-2). Indeed, the Grenats have just capitalized 4 points on the last two days, in St Etienne (1-0) and against the Toulouse Football Club (2-2) this weekend. The relapse could be fatal for visitors in search of results far from Saint-Symphorien.
A victory over Metz would allow Brest to leave the relegation zone.
Brest is undefeated this season at Francis le Blé: 1 win and 3 draws.
The result of the Grenats away is negative: 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses.
Expected reaction of the Bretons after their rout in Monaco (4-1).
Metz was hooked by Toulouse (2-2) at Saint-Symphorien.
Stade Brestois needs to put an end to this negative spiral … The arrival of a direct competitor to the maintenance can revive the Breton machine.
