Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Brest and Saint-Etienne, the two bottom-table sides, face each other at Stade Francis-Le Ble in what is expected to be a close encounter. Brest did well to hold Champions League chasing Rennes to a goalless draw at the weekend, but the club’s Ligue 1 status remains in danger. The hosts are eager to put an end to their three-match winless run in the national championship, and we predict that they are going to take advantage of the current situation in the Saint-Etienne dressing room.
Jean-Charles Castelleto remains on the sidelines through suspension for the hosts. Les Verts, on the other hand, are having a season to forget. Saint-Etienne sit in the danger zone in the Ligue 1 standings, and we do not believe that they are capable of putting an end to their three-match losing run in the French elite division as Brest have been showing signs of improvement of late.
