After holding Monaco to a 2-2 draw at Stade Louis II, Lorient will be aiming to escape the danger zone with a win over Brest at their Stade de Moustoir. Les Merlus are eyeing their only fourth home win of the process, but Sunday’s matinee will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Midfielder Aiyegun Tosin is banned for the match, while all Gedeon Kalulu, Montassar Talbi, Bonke Innocent, Igor Silva, Benjamin Mendy, and Quentin Boisgard miss out with injuries.

Les Pirates, on the other hand, aim to retain second place in the standings. As Brest will go for a win in Sunday’s encounter as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Midfielder Pierre Lees-Melou is out of contention through suspension, while defender Jordan Amavi has yet to recover from a calf injury.

Prediction: 1-1 (Draw)
