The Ligue 1 returns with a set of intriguing fixtures this weekend as Brest host an in-form Lille outfit at the Stade Francis Le-Ble on Sunday. Lille have a formidable squad at the moment and are the favourites to win this game.

Brest have endured a miserable run of form in recent weeks and will need to bounce back in this game. The home side suffered a 2-1 defeat against Rennes last week and will need to turn its season around this weekend.

Lille are the only unbeaten team in the Ligue 1 at the moment and will be intent on maintaining their excellent start to the season. The away side shocked AC Milan in the Europa League during the week and hold a distinct upper hand going into this game.


Brest vs Lille Head-to-Head

Lille have a predictably excellent record against Brest and have won seven games out of nine matches played between the two teams. Brest have managed only two victories against Lille and will have to improve their record against the French giants this weekend.

The previous meeting between these two sides in August earlier this year ended in a shock 2-1 victory for Brest. The home side is perfectly capable of punching above its weight and will want to prove a point in this game.

Brest vs Lille Prediction

Brest do not have a good defensive record in the Ligue 1 and cannot afford to slip up in their own half against Lille. Brest gave a good account of themselves against Rennes and will want to put in an improved performance this weekend.

Lille have an exceptional defensive record this season and will be thoroughly disappointed with anything less than a victory in this fixture. Brest's struggles are well-documented and Lille should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Brest 0-2 Lille
