Second Place Still Up for Grabs as Monaco Entertain Brest

We have a full round of fixtures to enjoy in the French Ligue 1 on the weekend including the meeting between AS Monaco and Stade Brestois 29 at the Stade Louis II. The hosts begin the weekend on 65 points and with a chance of going second while the visitors are in 11th place on 48 points.

Monaco come into the match on the back of a good 2-1 win at Lille last weekend. Monaco opened the scoring shortly before half-time but Lille equalised in the 69th minute. Monaco did not take long to re-establish their lead and scored the winning goal 6 minutes later.

That result means Monaco have won each of their 8 most recent games, all of which have come in Ligue 1. The fantastic winning run has propelled them into the Champions League qualifying places and Monaco now have their eye on second place.

Trends show Monaco have won each of their last 4 home Ligue 1 fixtures. The wins have come over Paris Saint-Germain, Troyes, Nice, and Angers. Monaco have managed to find the back of the net at least once in 14 of their 15 most recent home league games.

They have also been good defensively at home in recent weeks and Monaco have kept a clean sheet in 3 of their last 4 home Ligue 1 matches.

Brest make the trip to the Stade Louis II having lost 1-0 at home against Strasbourg last weekend. The only goal of the game was scored in the 72nd minute and the defeat ended a run of 3 straight victories for Brest. The wins came over Lyon and Clermont at home plus Metz away.

Brest have enjoyed a few wins in their most recent away league fixtures, picking up victories at Lens, Montpellier, and Metz in their last 5 away trips. However, their overall away form in Ligue 1 is not great and Brest have recorded only 3 wins from their last 9 games on the road.

Keeping clean sheets has proved to be a bit of a problem for Brest and they have conceded goals in 15 of their last 17 away Ligue 1 fixtures.

Trends show Brest have seen under 2.5 goals scored in 7 of their last 9 away league matches.

Looking ahead to the team news and Monaco are without the injured duo of Gelson Martins and Cesc Fàbregas.

Brest travel without the suspended forward Romain Del Castillo. Julien Faussurier and Sébastien Cibois are both expected to miss out due to injury.

Brest know how to keep things tight when playing away in Ligue 1 and therefore, we expect to see under 2.5 goals in this game.

However, their overall form on the road is not great and with second place on the line, we expect Monaco to win this match, keeping a clean sheet in the process.
