Brest vs Marseille Game Preview, Odds, Picks, & Predictions

Three Points Is All it Takes

With the Ligue 1 season just starting, getting as many three points as possible is all that matters. And with the rules changed, the quest to stay up has to start early. Four teams are going to relegate this season.

So, complacency won’t cut and can be dangerous to the team’s objective of staying in the league for another season. Therefore, three points matter regardless of the scores and odds. Teams have to take winning seriously from now.

Brest’s Quest for First Win

With Stade Brestois 29 losing their first match against RC Lens in a closely contested battle, they need to avoid making it two losses in two matches. The team must be careful approaching the next game.

In their opening game, they failed to be aggressive early. The team was already three goals down before they started to push. They could have been four down, but Marco Bizot saved Florian Sotoca’s penalty. However, Sotoca still got a hat trick in the game.

With the team already three goals down in the 65th minute, Haris Belkebla and Romain Del Castillo’s scoring wasn’t enough for Brest to salvage a point from the game.

They had to go home with nothing and try again in the next match. We expect Michel Der Zakarian to evaluate the game and find where the problem was to help the team do better in the next game.

Will This be Back-to-Back Wins for Marseille?

Fortunately for Olympique de Marseille, the team started their season with an emphatic win. There is a good chance for the team to keep going on that trajectory. It would allow them to rival Paris Saint Germain this season. We would love to see them fight for the title again and at least retain their UCL spot for next season.

In that case, a win at Brest is essential. They would have to do the same thing in the game. Although the own goal from Wout Faes helped set things in motion, Marseille was always going to be in cruise control for the game.

We didn’t expect them to do any less than they did. However, going three up in the 75th minute exceeded our expectations.

Luis Javier Suarez entered in the 62nd minute and ended the game with two goals. This might be a message to Igor Tudor that he deserves a starting spot on the team.

But we think Alexander Milik will retain the forward line in the next game, except if Tudor plans a change of tactics, which might affect the team’s balance.

Brest vs Marseille Head-to-Head

Olympique de Marseille has been the better side in this matchup. In the last five games, Brest has only managed to win one.

In the five-game run, Brest has also conceded goals. They’ve also scored at least one goal in the last five games.

Going into this game, if you bet online, you can tell that Marseille would be the favorite to win. The last game ended in a massive victory for Marseille as they thumped Brest in their home stadium. They have the chance to redeem themselves in this game as they host Marseille again.

Brest vs Marseille Prediction

Based on the current soccer odds, Marseille is the obvious favorite to win this game. With -110 odds, we think it is fair to bet on Marseille. It would be an exciting game, but Brest doesn’t have the firepower to handle a full-fledged Olympique de Marseille team.

With the season just starting, both teams have access to a fully ready team, and Marseille is coming on the back of a win in the first. So, our soccer pick for this tie is Marseille, to win at -110.
