Note: The odds are correct on Betfred at the time of writing our preview. Please check the bookmaker for updated prices before confirming your bet slip.

Lyon to win both halves

There is no denying the fact that Lyon is the better side coming to this fixture. An outstanding record of 4W and 6D against Brest in 10 past encounters should motivate the hosts to do even better and get their fifth victory over Brest. Last season, Lyon failed to register a home win against Brest, even though they bagged four points against the visitors, courtesy of a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture. Notably, Lyon conceded a total of 7 goals in four of their last ten meetings.

Total goals: Over 2.5

These teams could not keep a clean sheet against each other in eight of the last ten encounters. The last five meetings had more than three goals. Four of those games had four goals while (the last meeting) had five goals. Moreover, both teams played six pre-season matches during which Lyon had more than two goals in five of them while Brest had more than two goals in all pre-season fixtures. Both teams seem defensively troubled is as much they have also shown scoring prowess after finding the net in all pre-season games. Lyon kept only one clean sheet in six-pre-season games while Brest failed to do so in as many matches.

Lyon to score first

Our third pick is Lyon to score first in this match. The hosts have a home advantage and have historically proven to be an attacking force in the French Ligue 1. Moreover, Lyon is a team that likes to outscore weaker opponents and we think this game is for them to win or lose.

Match Preview: Lyon Looking to Start the Season with A win

Lyon has never lost a match to Brest in the last ten meetings. Can Lyon’s new head coach, Peter Bosz keep that run going? Our match preview has more details about Lyon vs Brest.

Olympique Lyon

With Rudi Garcia no longer in charge after leaving at the end of last season, Lyon’s new head coach,  Peter Bosz, hopes to get things started on a high note straightaway. The Dutch tactician joined Lyon in May 2021 after leaving German’s Bayern Leverkusen where he managed 108 games and averaged 1.79 points.  Peter Bosz previously managed Borussia Dortmund, a team he joined after leaving Ajax back in the summer of 2017. This is a huge assignment for the new head coach who averaged 2.12 points in 56 games at Ajax but failed to impress when he joined Dortmund. Lyon finished fourth last season, a position they will want to improve this season.

Brest

Brest struggled to stay in Ligue 1 last season and finished just a point above the relegation playoffs.  The visitors have acquired the services of former Montpellier head coach, Michel Der Zacharia, and hope to do better this season. Michel Der Zacharia averaged 1.49 points in 161 games with Montpellier. He previously managed Nantes between 2012 and 2016 before moving to Reims in the summer of 2016.
