Brest – Monaco Predictions and Tips and Odds for February 19, 16:00 LIGUE 1.

Brest – Monaco Preview

  • Left just two points above the Ligue 1 drop zone at the end of the last round following a comprehensive 3-0 defeat to Montpellier, Brest now look up against it in their quest to pull away from danger as they welcome an in-form Monaco. Eric Roy’s men are bolstered by the free signing of 36-year-old Loïc Rémy, who could be set to make his long-awaited debut after training with the side for the last few weeks.
  • Fans at Stade Francis-Le Blé will be hopeful of a positive result after the Pirates produced their biggest win of the campaign against Angers (4-0) at the end of last month, before a creditable draw against fourth-placed Lens in their last home outing. Even with that uptick in home form, Brest remain in big trouble after accruing their lowest points tally at this stage of any top-flight campaign in this century (20).
  • They’ll face one of the strongest sides on the continent here, with Monaco one of just ten sides across the ‘big five’ European divisions without a league defeat since the World Cup ahead of this weekend (W6, D2). That incredible run of form was bookended by a commanding 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain, securing their status as the highest-scoring side across the last five rounds (G16).
  • A Thursday night jaunt to Germany which saw Monaco win yet again as they beat Leverkusen 3-2 may have limited their preparations for this clash, yet that is unlikely to stop their rampant form. Backing up that statement is Monaco’s incredible away league form across their last 16 trips (W11, D4, L1), although their current run of three straight defeats without reply in away H2Hs is a cause for concern.
  • Players to watch: Brest striker Steve Mounié loves the comforts of home as 17 of his last 21 goals for the club have come at home, including one in their home H2H win last season. Breel Embolo has been on fire for Monaco, he’s scored five goals in his last seven appearances and has hit a league-high five headed goals this term.
  • Hot streak: Monaco have netted in 33 straight league games, that’s the longest current run of any side in Europe’s top five leagues!
