Third leg of the France Ligue 1 and big favorites Olympique Lyon have yet to win any matches in the new season, a very good chance now to change this as they welcome newly promoted Brest on Saturday.
Lyon’s start was very disappointing to everyone, hopes where high for them to start in force but their debut marked a goalless draw against AS Monaco completed with a painful defeat last week away to Caen.
Pressure is very high on the team to win this match against Brest and the players should be highly motivated to put on a good morale boosting performance.
Not much to say about Brest, this is the first time this small team enters the Ligue 1, thaws the last matches statistic.
They finished second in the Ligue 2 table last season, just under Caen and their former rivals have certainly increased their confidence after defeating Lyon.
My pick: Olympique Lyon to win ( over 2.5 goals )
