Brest – Lyon Predictions and PREVIEW

  • Despite having a month off for the World Cup, the managerial search incredibly rolls on at Stade Brestois, with caretaker boss Bruno Grougi set to take charge of his sixth game. The five games under Grougi’s stewardship have been a mixed bag (W2, D1, L2), yet the 2-1 win over Troyes ahead of the break ensured that they spent the Christmas period outside of the relegation zone, albeit only by virtue of goal difference.
  • A change of direction is sorely needed at Brest after recording their worst 15-game start to a top-flight season across the last decade (W3, D4, L8). Perhaps the best place to start is to improve upon their paltry 16-goal haul, only four sides had scored fewer ahead of this round but they may hope for better here after scoring twice in three straight home H2Hs against Olympique Lyonnais (W1, D1, L1).
  • The break possibly came at a good time for mid-table Lyon after recording their own worst 15-game start to a Ligue 1 campaign (W6, D3, L6) since being two points worse off at the same stage of 2013/14. They actually recovered to finish in fifth that year and will hope for something similar under the leadership of former PSG and France manager Laurent Blanc.
  • After recently stating “Lyon has a problem and we have a big project”, the break gave Blanc a chance to assess the squad which must be seen as a positive after some mixed results across his opening five games in charge (W2, D1, L2). In order to break back into the top five, Lyon’s rotten away form needs to be addressed immediately, with only Nantes picking up fewer road points than Lyon’s four this term (W1, D1, L5).
  • Players to watchRomain Del Castillo has been instrumental to Brest’s limited success this term, making four goal contributions across their only two victories since August (G2, A2). Alexandre Lacazette scored and assisted in Lyon’s only away victory this term, although he’s yet to make a goal contribution against Brest in four H2Hs (W1, D3).
  • Hot stat: Lyon have been losing favourites on just one occasion in league action this season (W6, D3, L1).
