Our Nice v Brest predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below including the latest game odds.
Nice will be hoping for a better result after a 2-0 Ligue 1 loss in their previous game against Lille.
In that match, Nice managed 45% possession and 0 shots on goal with 0 of them on target. On the other side, LOSC Lille Métropole got 12 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Burak Yılmaz (13') and Zeki Çelik (56') scored for Lille.
Adrian Ursea's Nice have hit the target a sum total of 8 times in their last 6 outings. The comparative tally of goals that they have conceded in that time is 6.
Their past results show that Nice:
- have left without a victory over Brest in their last 3 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 4 home league matches.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Nantes in Ligue 1 competition, Brest and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Brest managed 59% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. The scorer for Brest was Romain Faivre (83'). For their opponents, FC Nantes had 12 shots on goal with 6 on target. Moses Simon (15'), Ludovic Blas (27'), Imran Louza (56') and Kalifa Coulibaly (62') scored for Nantes.
The numbers tell their own story, and Brest have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 8 goals overall. In defence, Les Ty' Zefs have been far from perfect. We will just have to see if that trend can be sustained in this game.
Head to head

Team News: Nice
Dante (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Myziane Maolida (Surgery) and Jeff Reine-Adélaïde (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for Nice boss Adrian Ursea.
Team News: Brest
Brest manager Olivier Dall’Oglio has some current player fitness concerns. Paul Lasne (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Christophe Hérelle (Knee Injury) will miss out on this game.
We believe that Brest are capable enough to find the back of the net against this Nice side, but that might not quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re expecting a narrow 2-1 win for Nice after the 90. Should be a good one.
