Brest vs Lens Prediction

Lens' title charge hit a snag in midweek, as they fell to a defeat against Nice at home. Manager Franck Haise will seek an immediate response from his side, although their poor record at Brest could make Sunday's clash a tricky proposition.

Brest, meanwhile, are eerily close to the relegation zone, with just one point separating them from the bottom three. They will draw inspiration from their 4-0 win over Angers in their last home game and also showed their doggedness to secure a precious point at Lyon.

However, Lens have been one of the most consistent sides in the league this season and should claim a narrow win with goals at both ends.
