Lorient vs Brest Prediction & Tips
Lorient , 3rd, is only 5 points from the Stade Brestois in the standings … In other words, this meeting is expected on the side of the Breton people. The Merlus are not at the best now because the band of Landreau has recorded 2 defeats in the last two days against Orleans (1-3) at Moustoir and Nancy (3-2) last weekend. With only 3 wins in his last 7 receptions,Lorient is not very efficient at home and could see the Stade Brestois escape in case of defeat. Brest, FC Metz’s dolphin, suffered a heavy home defeat against the modest Valenciennes team (2-5). A big setback that allows FC Metz to win 1 point thanks to its draw against Sochaux (1-1) and to count 4 points ahead in the lead of the general. This is the first defeat of the year for the foals of Jean-Marc Furlan who had not lost since December 4, 10 games (5 wins and 5 draws). A draw would make the business of the visitors who would always keep his distance from their opponent of the day.
