PSG Go For Third Straight Win
Paris Saint-Germain have shaken off their slow start in Ligue 1 and won back-to-back games. Now, PSG are only two points behind league leaders Monaco. On Sunday, PSG will head on the road to take on one of the surprises of the season, Brest. Brest are in fifth place and lost for the first time in six games on Sunday. As PSG go for three straight Ligue 1 wins, we’ll look at the Brest vs PSG betting odds.
PSG won both meetings vs Brest on the Ligue 1 schedule last season. They picked up a 1-0 win at the Parc des Princes, and Carlos Soler and Kylian Mbappe scored in the 2-1 victory at Brest. PSG have also won their last 12 matches vs Brest in all competitions. The Parisians have also kept clean sheets in five of the previous seven head-to-head matchups.
Brest Solid on Defense
Stade Brestois lost for just the second time this season last weekend. Brest fell 1-0 at Lille as a bad giveaway from Achraf Dari handed Les Dogues a golden opportunity. Still, Brest have been one of the best Ligue 1 teams this season. With a 4-3-2 record, they enter Matchday 10 in fifth place. They’ve had one of the best defenses in the league so far, conceding just eight times in nine soccer matches.
Romain Del Castillo has been one of the best players in the league this season. The right winger has scored three goals and two assists, both of which lead the team. He also leads Ligue 1 in key passes and crosses up to this point. Marco Bizot has also been solid in goal, with the fifth-best save percentage in the league.
Midfielder Pierre Lees-Melou is also in the top ten in the league in both interceptions and tackles made. Eric Roy would like to see more scoring from his team, as they’ve averaged just one goal per game this season. Here, the Brest vs PSG betting odds list the hosts as +460 underdogs.
Resurgent PSG Get Big Midweek Win
Paris Saint-Germain got a massive 3-0 win over AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. PSG’s counterattacks were deadly in the match, as the Rossoneri defense couldn’t handle the trio of Kylian Mbappe, Randal Kolo Muani and Ousmane Dembele. Mbappe scored PSG’s first goal, and he leads the Ligue 1 stats, with eight goals.
Kolo Muani scored the Parisians’ second goal off a rebounded shot. Warren Zaire-Emery provided an assist for Lee Kang-in’s first PSG goal to seal the win. PSG have now scored three goals in each of their last three games, in all competitions. Last weekend in Ligue 1, they knocked off Strasbourg, 3-0.
With a mostly healthy squad, PSG are starting to look formidable under Luis Enrique. Their backline of Lucas Hernandez, Milan Skriniar, Marquinhos and Achraf Hakimi is among the best in the world. The Parisians are just two points behind league leaders Monaco and could potentially leapfrog them this weekend.
Match Analysis & Odds
Bettors should note that Brest’s matches have averaged under two goals this season. Brest have conceded just three goals in their last six matches. Meanwhile, PSG have conceded just once in their last four Ligue 1 games. Here, the Brest vs PSG betting odds list under three goals at -120.
Brest are +460 home underdogs, while PSG are -185 favorites to win a fourth straight match in all competitions. Brest +1 sits at -115 odds, while Paris Saint-Germain -1 shows the same Ligue 1 odds. Notably, Brest haven’t managed to avoid defeat in this fixture since 2011, when they drew 2-2.
A draw is priced at +350 odds, but Brest’s defense will undoubtedly have their hands full here. PSG have drawn two of their four matches on the road here but have built some momentum recently.
