Brest hosts St. Etienne in round 16 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Wednesday, December 1st at Stade Francis-Le Blé (Brest)
Brest defeated Bordeaux in the last away round (1-2). It was the 4th consecutive victory for the team in the French championship. The unbeaten streak already totals six matches (four victories and two draws). Thanks to these results, the Pirates managed to rise to the 12th line in the standings (18 points scored), although they were in the relegation zone until recently. Now the gap from the relegation zone is five points. In 15 rounds, Der Zakarian's men scored 22 goals and conceded the same number. On average, almost three goals are scored per match with their participation. Brest shows quite good results at home: one victory, two draws, and four defeats with a goal difference of 12-9.

Saint-Etienne lost to PSG in the last match at home (1-3). Thus, the Greens ended a streak of four matches in a row without defeats (two victories and two draws). The team dropped to the last place in the standings (12 points in the asset). All indicators of the Greens in the current Ligue 1 draw look like this: two wins, six draws, and seven losses with a goal difference of 17-31. Nobody in Ligue 1 concedes more. Nine out of 15 games in the French Championship ended with Over 2.5 goals scored. I will note that Greens managed not to concede in only one game of this season. In seven away matches, Claude Puel's men managed to put only five points in their piggy bank (one victory, two draws, and four defeats).
Brest is in great shape. I have no doubt that the Pirates will try to extend their winning streak. But I think that this match will be very difficult for them. If we leave aside the last game against PSG, Saint-Etienne was also good in the last matches. If the Greens recover from a defeat to the Parisians, it is quite possible that they will continue to gain points. I think that a rather sharp game awaits us. Both teams are unlikely to sit back on heels. Most likely, it makes sense to bet on Over 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
