Both of Brest’s matches ended as draws, and they’ll be going into this one looking for their first win in front of their home crowd. Reims won their season opener and will be pleased with their performance last week. They go into this one with their heads high looking for their second win this season.

Brest vs Reims Prediction & Match Preview

Saturday, August 24 – 14:00 EST – Francis le Ble

Brest have shown they can compete in Ligue 1, drawing their matches first 2 matches against Toulouse and Saint-Étienne. In their match against Saint-Étienne, Brest had many chances and even struck the post in the first half, they were unlucky to not get the win. Brest have a great record at home. In their season opener, a late Toulouse equalizer is what denied them a home victory. Brest will not have an easy task this Saturday against a very good Reims team. They will look to build on these past performances and hope to give their home fans a victory.

Reims have had a solid start to the season. They won their season opener and drew their match last week. They have looked great defensively with 3 clean sheets in their last 4 matches, PSG being the only team to score on them during this run. Reims have lost just 2 of their last 13 away matches. This side displayed just how well they can play away, as they beat Marseille 2-0 in their opening match. We think that it will be a tight game between the two teams. The last time that Reims won this fixture was back in 2013. We’re expecting few goals between the two teams.
