Lyon, Brest, aims to win for better standings

Olympique Lyonnais, and Stade Brestois meet in a match that is crucial for them, especially for Brest who is hoping to escape the relegation zone. Currently, Lyon is at the eighth of the league table with 21 points. However, they are in need of wins because if they lose, they could drop to the 10th of the league table. As for Brest, they are at the 16th of the league table, with 13 points, and are just above the relegation zone. The meeting between these two teams will be on December 29, 2022, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), when Brest hosts this match.

Meetings between these two teams are no longer new for each other as they have met several times already, across all competitions. During their last 12 meetings, Lyon recorded four wins, adding to their superior record against Brest. Moreover, in their last 12 meetings, Lyon only have one win, while the remaining seven all ended in draw. However, Brest actually have a good record right now, unbeaten in three of their last four match in the league. They won twice while the other one is a draw. This record is also enjoyed by Lyon, also unbeaten in their last four league matches.

Olympique Lyonnais

Ligue 1: Olympique Lyonnais

During their World Cup break, this squad does not step from playing, as they joined friendly matches during that break. During their friendly matches, they enjoyed two wins and one draw from their five friendly matches. As they returned to the Ligue 1, they are hoping to pick more wins, as they are just at the eighth spot of the standings. They only gained 21 points from their 15 matches. However, they might struggle in this match, as they are not doing well on the road, only having one win. They are hoping to finally improve their away from home record. If this team does not have some late heroics, this squad could have been in a worse position.

Jerome Boateng is not expected to return for Lyon due to his knee injury, until the early weeks of January.

Stade Brestois

This squad failed to be impressive during the World Cup break when they opt to play in the friendlies, and had two matches there. Unlike their opponents, they had a disappointing run in the Friendlies, and as they resume Ligue 1, they are hoping to turn the tables around here. Luckily for them, they are currently unbeaten in three of their last four matches, so they have a good momentum coming into this game. Those three matches include a 2-1 home victory during their finals match before the break. They are hoping to finally rise from the relegation zone when they battle with an excellent team like Lyon.

Jere Uronen is a game-time decision for this match due to his muscle injury.
