Lille host Brest on Sunday, as Christophe Galtier's side look to extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1.

Lille have been immense this season, and are currently on a seven-game winning streak. Le Dogues have played some irresistible football this season and are now two points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

Brest, on the other hand, are looking to make it three wins from three. Olivier Dall'Oglio's side are currently 12th in Ligue 1, but a win on Sunday would see them climb into 10th on the table.

Brest have one of the leakiest defenses in Ligue 1 and will be coming up against one of the league's best attacks in Lille.

Sunday's fixture looks pretty straightforward for Lille, as they march towards the Ligue 1 title, but an in-form Brest could cause problems for Christophe Galtier's side.

Lille vs Brest Head-to-Head

Lille just edge the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, winning three of the last five meetings, with Brest winning two.

However, Brest did win the reverse fixture 3-2 earlier this season, and have a chance to do the double over Lille on Sunday.
