Note: The odds for Montpellier vs Brest are correct at the time of writing. Please confirm with Betfred before placing your bet on any of our three predictions.

Victory or Draw for Brest

Both teams have lost twice, drawn twice and won once in their last five fixtures. However, Brest looks better defensively coming into this game save for the last two games which they lost 3-2 to Nice and 4-1 to Nantes. In the reverse fixture, Brest managed a point after a 2-2 draw. They had seven shots on target against four for Montpellier. In this game, Montpellier is assured of safety even if they lose all the two remaining fixtures. For Brest, victory on the road against a team they have never defeated is a major challenge as they battle for survival points.

Both teams will score

Montpellier vs Brest fixture is not a battle of the best. It will be about a team that can secure their backline and concede fewer goals against the other. Both teams have scored and conceded goals in their last six fixtures. Montpellier’s defence looks more porous than that of Brest and we see them conceding at least a goal on Sunday. The hosts have scored in all their last six meetings with Brest, winning four of them.

Goal fest expected at Stade de la Mosson

Two teams that struggle defensively are meeting at Stade de la Mosson. In such a fixture, we do not only expect both teams to score but also a high scoreline. Despite Montpellier being the bookies favourite, pur analysis says otherwise. We see the hosts conceding at some goals in this game.

Game Preview: Brest looking for survival points

Brest hope to secure another points or a win altogether when they meet Montpellier for the second time this season. But can they do against a team they never defeated the hosts in the last ten meetings?

Montpellier

Fifty points in 36 games give Montpellier a safety assurance regardless of outcomes in the remaining fixtures. In such cases, complacency is likely to get the better of a team, especially after a torrid season. Montpellier has the 10th best home record after 18 home fixtures. However, losing eight games at home, drawing three times and winning is worrisome. The hosts have conceded 35 goals at home so far, averaging one goal per home fixture.

Brest

Brest lacks victory on the road against Montpellier. However, the visitors’ manager boats of a better h2h comparison against his Sunday host. Three victories and two draws against the hosts’ manager (Michel Der Zakarian), should give Brest some hopes going into this fixture.
