Match Preview

Brest come into this game hoping to regain some momentum after being winless in their last four Ligue 1 (L1) fixtures (D1, L3). However, the hosts can take confidence from the fact that they have failed to score in just two of their last 26 home league fixtures across France’s top two divisions.
‘Les Brestois’ are hoping to gain an edge in what is a balanced top-flight H2H record (W4, D4, L4). If they win here it could be with a cleansheet, as Brest have kept one in each of their four victories to date in this L1 campaign.
Strasbourg’s 4-0 win at Amiens (Nov 23) saw them put an end to a six-game winless run on the road, which had blighted their league campaign (D1, L5). In fact, that result bore some significance, as each of their seven L1 road trips to date have seen at least one side fail to score.
Scoring first could be a game decider in any case, as ‘Le Racing’ have seen the winning side take a 1-0 lead at half-time in each of their last five L1 away fixtures (W1, L4). However, the visitors are yet to score inside the first 30 minutes of an away game this L1 season.
Players to watch: Brest’s top league scorer Irvin Cardona has scored each of his three L1 goals this season beyond the hour mark.
Strasbourg’s joint-top marksman, Adrien Thomasson, has scored half of his four league strikes between the 20th-30th minute of play.
Stat attack: Brest are yet to concede a home league goal inside the opening 15 minutes of either half.
Each of Strasbourg’s seven L1 away fixtures to date have featured under 1.5 goals at half-time.
Five of the previous six H2Hs across France’s top two divisions held here have seen both teams score.
