Bordeaux vs Brest Prediction

The two sides have been inconsistent this season. However, Brest have rediscovered their best form in recent weeks which does not bode well for Bordeaux, who tend to struggle on home turf.

Games involving the hosts tend to be high-scoring affairs and they currently find themselves outside the relegation zone on just goal difference.

Both sides will fancy their chances of winning the game and are likely to go all out in search of goals but we are predicting the spoils to be shared in a high-scoring stalemate.
