Stade Brestois eyes escape

Stade Brestois goes against Lille OSC with hopes of escaping the relegation table, as they are now in a dangerous zone. They are coming from two-consecutive defeats when they went against Montpellier and Monaco. Lille on the other hand is also eager to win this contest, as they are coming from a narrow defeat. It was PSG who gave them the defeat, which is not surprising considering their dominance. This match will be on February 25, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with Lille playing as hosts for Brest.

These two teams meet for the first time in 1979, and since then, they already squared off 35 times. From these matches, it was the host who have been dominant, winning 16 games. On the other hand, the visitors only have eight wins, while the remaining 11 matches ended in draw. Additionally, the hosts are excellent at home, as they are unbeaten at home since August. Brest on the other hand is not doing well recently, as they are winless in their last five away games in the league. In fact, in four of those five away games, they have failed to score. As they meet a tougher opponent in this game, they are still hopeful to overturn things.

Brest is a team who is not doing well recently, failing to win in their last four league games. In addition, they are also coming from two consecutive defeats. This squad recent suffered a 2-1 defeat against Monaco. They are afraid that if they continue playing this way, they might continue dropping in the league table. It seems like this squad is really struggling away from home, as they only have one win since August. This is also the case when the year started, they only picked up one win in 2023. They are in a dangerous spot right now, at the 16th. Brest is just a point away from the drop zone, but if they win, they might climb to the 15th spot.

No fresh injury concerns for Brest, but Franck Honorat, and Brendan Chardonnet are still a doubt due to their injuries.

It is unfortunate that this squad failed to win three games in a row, after falling short against the top teams, PSG. It was a high goal scoring game, as it ended in a 4-3 shootout. Lille were able to comeback, after having a two-goal deficit. It was the goals from Bafode Diakita, Jonathan David, and Jonathan Bamba, that helped Lille climb back. However, Mbappe and Messi are just too much for them, which made them fail to secure a win. This squad is playing well at home, and are actually unbeaten in that format since August. However, when going against Brest, they failed to score in three of their last four league meetings.

Jose Fonte is a major doubt for this team, after he was seen limping in their previous match. Bafode Diakite on the other hand will not be available as he will serve suspension, after getting five yellow cards.
