Note: The above game odds are correct but because odds change often, we recommend visiting the bookmaker for the latest prices.

Expected Victory for Nantes

Nantes defeated Brest 3-1 in the first leg of the season and hopes to bag another victory in the second meeting. While the visitors have had some bad results in the recent weeks, away win last weekend against Strasbourg could have been the spark they need to fight for survival. Even more importantly, Brest has never recorded victory at home against Nantes in the previous six encounters. The visitors have two away victories against the hosts. Moreover, Nantes has registered three victories, one draw and one loss in their last five away games. The hosts have no victory in their last five home fixtures of three draws and two losses.

Nantes to Net First

The visitors can still survive relegation. It all depends on how they perform against Brest on Sunday. If they can win this fixture, Antoine Kombouare men will move four points off the relegation zone with four games to go. The only way for the visitors is to score goals early in the fixture. It is, however, no mean feat against Brest, a team that has improved defensively in the last five games. Nantes has scored first in the last two meetings with Brest. Thus, making it three victories on the road against the hosts can only happen if they net first in this game.

At least Three Goals Expected

While betting more than three goals in this game looks tricky because Brest has conceded at most one goal in each of their last four games, Nantes recent stats are equally worth exploring. Five out of the last seven games for the visitors have had a scoreline of 2-1, or at least three goals. Moreover, the visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 17 fixtures.

Match Preview: Nantes can build on their Victory as they fight for Safety

Brest only need a win or draw to remain in Ligue 1 next season. On the contrary, Nantes must fight on to stay up.

Brest

Brest has 40 points and sits 13th on Ligue 1 table. Three more points will secure them Ligue 1 place next season, assuming the teams below win all remaining fixtures. Despite having only one victory in the last five games, the hosts improved defensively. However, Olivier Dall`Oglio men are yet to secure a home against Nantes. The two managers have two victories against each other and four draws. Thus, this fixture is not just about Nantes getting safety points. It is also about a manager that gets more victories against the other.

Nantes

After three consecutive losses, Nantes grabbed the 76th minute away win against Strasbourg last weekend. In this fixture, the visitors hope to secure another three points against Brest after a 3-1 victory in the reverser fixture. If Antoine Kombouare can inspire his men to another victory, the visitors will have a glimmer of hope going into the final three games after Sunday.
