Wednesday Ligue 1 action from the Stade Francis-Le Blé, as Brest take on ASSE.

ASSE will travel to Brest, as twentieth plays twelfth in the table.

Brest arrive at this game, having secured 18 points so far this season

Following two straight wins for Brest in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Also, success in football comes from winning more games than your opponents, simply put, if Brest can continue to extend their winning streak from four games then Michel Der Zakarian’s squad will have an incredible season. With 18 points, they currently sit twelfth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 4 wins, 5 losses and 6 draws having won four meetings, drawn six matches, and lost five fixtures.

When Brest host ASSE, they will do so on the back of two victories, three draws, and two defeats on their own ground.

Brest will have secured 21 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Brest’s squad has depth, but even so, Michel Der Zakarian is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Wednesday’s game.

Struggling Saint-Étienne go to the Stade Francis-Le Blé on Wednesday and hope for a positive result

ASSE will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to Paris Saint-Germain at the Stade Geoffroy Guichard. Claude Puel’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Also, when you suffer seven defeats in the last 12 games, it should come as no surprise that your team is very much struggling at the bottom of the League. But that is the situation that ASSE find themselves in. They currently stand twentieth in the League, with 12 points for a total of 2 wins, 7 losses and 6 draws having won two meetings, drawn six games, and lost seven fixtures.

ASSE’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Brest. In the 7 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won one game, drawn two games, and lost four meetings.

Victory for Saint-Étienne would take their points tally to 15 so far this season.

ASSE may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Brest v Saint-Étienne – Head-to-Heads.

Regarding their historical duels it’s unlikely that this game will result in a draw, or at least that is what the form book would tell us, Brest have played ASSE 10 times in the past seasons, with both sides enjoying victory four wins times each. Additionally, ASSE have left Brest with a win on four out of six matches. April 2021 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and Brest took all three points winning 1-2 away. As we can see both teams have scored in the last match between these teams and it’s rated at 65.36% that they both get on the scoresheet once more at the Stade Francis-Le Blé.

The probability of a Brest win is 43.86 percent.

Other standout players for Brest are Romain Faivre and Jeremy Le Douaron with five goals both and for ASSE are Denis Bouanga and Saidou Sow with three goals and two goals respectively.
