Brest are still relatively new to Ligue 1 – last season’s campaign marked their return after 6 long years in Ligue 2. With that in mind, the fact that they finished 14th seems like a reasonable success. That being said, it can be hard to measure how they compare to the other clubs with relatively little information available.
Looking at Ligue 1 outright betting odds, it’s clear that online bookmakers aren’t ready to put a lot of faith in them. Priced at 101.00 for a Top 3 Finish, they’re seen as one of the league’s underdogs. However, relegation seems just as unlikely based on their previous performances. The Brittany-based club are equally tricky to predict because of their notable versatility. Due to their ever-changing formation and utilization of key players, trying to anticipate markets such as Over/Under or BTTS is quite unreliable.
Brest Key Players
Brest often rely on a compact formation to try and deny goalscoring opportunities. To that end, centre-backs Denys Bain and Jean-Kevin Duverne play a pivotal part in both hindering passes into their side of the pitch and creating opportunities for the forwards. Christophe Hérelle has also been brought in from Nice for the 2020/21 season, implying that coach Dall’Oglio intends to employ similar tactics. Backed by the impressive Senegalese young star Ibrahima Diallo, this approach might yet turn out to be effective.
Interestingly, goalkeeper Gautier Larsonneur is widely considered one of Les Pirates most valued assets, further bolstering the emphasis on a solid defence.
Brest is the city located in the furthest west of all 13 French regions. Brittany is a historic region where Derby Breton matches are contested among a couple of different clubs located in the area.
Stade Rennes and FC Nantes are the two most notable rivals from the region. However, the Derby Breton usually includes Guingamp, Lorient as well as Stade Brest. Moreover, the minnows such as Quimper, Vannes OC or US Siant-Malo are also involved in this local rivalry.
The club was founded in 1950. The full name reads Stade Brestois 29 but Brest are also knows as The Pirate Team or Our Winds. Brest is a city located in a sheltered bay off the tip of France which makes the club’s nicknames much easier to understand.
Brest are not among the most established football clubs in France. Brest have got only 14 top-flight seasons under their belt while they spent most of their existence fighting through the lower echelons of French football.
The Pirate Club’s favourite colour is red and they play their home matches at the Stade Francis-Le Ble. This multi-use venue can fit 15,000 spectators and is named after a famous mayor of Brest who died in 1982.
