Brest vs Lens Predictions for Ligue 1

Lens to Win

It shouldn’t seem too surprising that we favor Lens. The visitors had a tremendous last season. The improvement is definitely there, so Brest will have their work cut out for them on the 13th of August. We believe that Lens have the three points up for grabs, as in two of the last three head-to-heads, it was Lens who emerged victoriously. Furthermore, Brest’s last pre-season friendly ended in a disappointing 1-1 against Cagliari. That’s surely not the performance the French side was going for.


As we mentioned in the previous Brest vs Lens prediction, coach Eric Roy’s boys couldn’t make chances pay and rightfully the match against Cagliari ended 1-1. With goals galore in their last pre-season friendly, Brest’s game against Lens will surely be a can’t-miss Ligue 1 event as well. Especially, when you consider the head-to-head statistics. A staggering 70.0% of the last 10 matches between the two sides ended with both clubs scoring at least once.

Over 2.5 Goals

There have been over 2.5 goals in five of the last nine Brest vs Lens head-to-heads. Not the most convincing statistics, we know. However, we have a good feeling about the match at Stade Francis-Le Ble. The visitors are obvious favorites to win, which will force them to attack. Brest, on the other hand, has the home-field advantage. And it is the first game of the season. A loss wouldn’t mean that much. Both sides will enjoy a pressure-free game, which definitely benefits our free Brest vs Lens prediction.

Brest vs Lens: Can Lens Get Any Better?


Stade Brestois 29 was not among the best Ligue 1 teams last season. Coach Eric Roy did what he could to save the team from relegation, which was more than what the fans could’ve wanted, considering the horrible start to the 2022/23 campaign.


Lens are on the other extreme. The team put up a title fight with Paris giants PSG. At the end of the campaign, it was Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe who congratulated themselves on the Ligue 1 title, but it was definitely a tight race, as Lens were only a point away from poaching the trophy.
