Win probability

Home: 11/20 (1.55) – 64.5%

Draw: 14/5 (3.8) – 26.3%

Away: 17/4 (5.25) – 19%

Brest will be confident of picking up all three points in this game given the run of form both sides have been on, but a more interesting market to look at would be for both teams to combine for over 2.5 goals in 90 minutes, which can be found with respectable odds of 22/25 (1.88) and a 53.2% chance of coming in.

Elsewhere, the half-time market is very interesting, with Brest leading at the break having a likelihood of 47.6% chance of happening, with odds of 11/10 (2.1).

Brest vs Lorient team news

Brest

Except for a blip of bad form in October and the start of November, Brest have been storming up the Ligue 1 table, having lost just four times, and two of those defeats came at the hands of Monaco and PSG, who are first and third, respectively.

Predicted Lineup: Bizot – Locko, Brassier, Chardonnet, Lala – Lees-Melou, Magnetti, Camara – Le Douraron, Mounie, Del Castillo

Lorient

Lorient look destined for relegation come the end of the season, having won just once in the league as of right now, with their last victory being in October, and they can't put their form down to injuries either, with Quentin Boisgard, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ayman Kari the only absentees.

Predicted Lineup: Mvogo – B. Mendy, Toure, Talbi, F. Mendy – Innocent, Abergel – Ponceau, Faivre – Tosin, Dieng

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Romain Del Castillo

Despite being fifth in the league, Brest have had few standout players, especially going forward, but it's Romain Del Castillo who is leading the way with five strikes and two assists to his name.

The Frenchman has not missed a game in Ligue 1 for Brest this campaign, consistently playing in his favoured right-wing role, being able to get defenders in one-on-one situations and creating a spark in the final third. Brest will need that against a stubborn Lorient defence who will likely be turning up and ready to settle for a point from the outset.
