Despite slipping up last weekend, Brest managed to stay inside the top three due to Lille's defeat on the same weekend and three points could see them book a spot in Europe's elite competition next season. They couldn't have asked for a better opponent either with Reims in mid-table and now without a manager following Will Still's departure.

Key stats

  • Brest have failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last five games
  • Reims have won one of their last seven Ligue 1 matches
  • Les Pirates have only lost two home league games all season

Pre-game odds and win probability: Brest expected to move closer to their ultimate goal

Home: 7/10 (1.7) – 58.8%

Draw: 29/10 (3.9) – 25.6%

Away: 7/2 (4.5) – 22.2%

Both of these teams come into this fixture in shocking patches of form having won just once between them in their last 14 games. The bookmakers likely only have Brest as overwhelming favourites because of their league position and home advantage, but we would strongly advise avoiding the outright winner market.

Instead, we believe our free betting tips page can offer excellent value and added incentives to make your picks a little more exciting. We provide tips on the likes of BTTS, HT/FT and the number of goals to be scored in a match.

Last five H2Hs: Don't expect too many goals

There have only been nine goals across the previous five clashes between Brest and Reims, with both sides struggling to assert their dominance in this picture and the Ligue 1 table. However, with a lot on the line this week for the home side, they could come flying out of the traps.

Brest preview: No more slip-ups

Brest have only been able to win one of their last four matches and even that victory was a dramatic last-minute winner. However, they know one more win may be all they require to secure a top-three spot and doing so in front of their own fans would be the perfect way to do so.

Predicted lineup: Bizot (GK) – Locko, Brassier, Chardonnet, Lala – Martin, Magnetti – Satriano, Camara, Del Castillo – Mounie

Reims preview: Season is fizzling out

A strong start to the seasons saw Reims pushing for the European spots under Will Still, however, he's now departed the club after a shocking run of form and potential job offers from England. Reims have now lost three straight games and their last win was back on March 17th, showing how out of form they are and need the season to end.

Predicted lineup: Diouf (GK) – Akieme, Adbelhamid, Agbadou, Foket – Khadra, Teuma, Richardson – Nakamura, Diakite, Ito

Brest's Kenny Lala

Player to watch: Kenny Lala

In what has been a magnificent season for Brest, they are starting to become unstuck at the most important part as legs tyre and other teams begin to work out how they play their football, so this is where an unlikely source may come into play. That man could well be Kenny Lala who's only got three goal involvements to his name in Ligue 1.

The underlying numbers are promising

Despite only having one goal and two assists in Ligue 1, Lala has been putting in impressive display offensively. He's created the second-most short-creating actions in the Brest squad with 88, so he could be tasked with creating more openings on Friday.
