Brest take on the visitors Lorient at "Stade Francis-Le Ble" in the round 33 of the French Ligue 1. The game will be played in Brest on Monday, April 16th.
Brest are still hoping for promotion to the French elite division at the end of the season. The club celebrated 3:1 victory over Valenciennes at the home pitch in the previous matchday. At the moment the club is sitting on the eighth place in the Ligue 2 table with 51 points earned 45-38 goal difference, being only four points away from the fifth position which allows participating in the Play Offs.

Meanwhile, Lorient stay in an excellent shape now, having gained five wins in six latest encounters played. In the previous round “Les Merlus” broke Paris FC with 2:0 scoreline. That successful streak enabled Lorient to settle on the current fourth position place the Ligue 2 table with 56 points collected and 53-38 goal difference. As for battles conducted on the road, the side has taken 21 points with 23 goals for and 24 goals against in 15 away clashes.
Lorient celebrated 4:2 triumph over Brest in a spectacular first-lap fight in this season. The upcoming game is very important for both sides in terms of staying in the race for promotion to the Ligue 1, thus, I believe that it is going to be a high-scoring tackle as like the hosts, like the visitors badly need a victory, consequently, both of them will attack. Each of the rivals has strong offense while their defense is not the most reliable one.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
