Brest - Lens betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 14:00 on 18/04/2021 played @ Stade Francis-Le Blé refereed by Karim Abed

Brest have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Lens. They are widely considered to be the weaker team – though the difference is not huge, to be fair. Overall, it’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown.

Things are looking problematic for the visiting side. They are going up against a stronger team which also has a home pitch advantage. Victory is still within reach – they’ll just have to work harder than usual to get it.

Brest haven’t exactly been showing their best form lately. For instance, last round’s home draw 1:1 against Nîmes ended in a lukewarm draw. It’s far from a disaster but most of us – including the world’s best online bookmakers – expected a lot more considering they played at home.

In the previous round of the Ligue 1, Lens turned a slight edge in form and home-field advantage into a decisive 4:1 victory against Lorient.

The home team’s tendency to see their defence crumble under the pressure of away games is worrying – they conceded more than 5 times over the previous 3 away games. The fact that they’re at Stade Francis-Le Blé this Sunday makes things easier for them, but not by a lot.

Looking over the visitors and their recent history, we noticed they’ve scored more than 5 goals in their previous 3 appearances. This signals a consistent ability to score in most matchups, which is good news for their supporters.

The two squads already met this season in the Ligue 1. As expected, Lens took the win, though the match was a bit close. Either way, Brest have no history of beating the odds in this particular matchup.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 1.93 if you use the Betway sportsbook.
