Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
When Brest and Reims face each other in the Ligue 1 a low-scoring affair is guaranteed. Brest head into the match following a 1-0 loss to Bordeaux, and, no doubt, they want to start a new winning one in the French top flight. It has to be noted that les Pirates are eyeing their fifth home win of the season. Reims, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous three league fixtures.
Les Rouges et Blancs should be happy with one point from Sunday’s clash, and they are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach against Brest. Anyhow, a low-scoring game is on the cards as under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous five encounters in all competitions. When the two teams met at Stade Francis-Le Ble last season Brest defeated Reims thanks to Charbonier’s late goal. Moreto Cassama is back from suspension for the visitors.
