Brest vs Marseille Tips and Prediction
After Florian Sotoca’s hat-trick gave Les Sang et Or a three-goal lead over Lens last weekend, Brest came so near yet so far to salvaging a memorable draw against Lens in an effort to channel the spirits of Liverpool’s 2005 Champions League legends.
Only a minute had passed since Sotoca’s third goal when Haris Belkebla’s shot was deflected into the net by Kevin Danso. Romain Del Castillo then made it closer from the penalty spot, but it was not to be for Michel Der Zakarian’s team.
Such a “never-say-die” mentality will undoubtedly benefit Les Pirates in the approaching months as Der Zakarian seeks to strengthen the consistency of one of the league’s resident erratic clubs, who have now lost four straight games in the top division. Brest, though, have at least managed to score twice in each of their last three losses, showing that the cause of their issues is not in the final third, but Marseille are experts at revealing defensive frailties.
From William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi to Sead Kolasinac, there has been a constant link with Arsenal over the past several months at the Orange Velodrome, and last Sunday’s rout of Reims was no exception.
Nuno Tavares, on loan from the Gunners, scored the best goal, cutting inside and firing home with his right foot from outside the box after a Wout Faes own goal had put Les Olympiens in the lead. The Colombian Luis Suarez then added a brace for himself after coming on as a substitute.
Reims scored a consolation goal through Folarin Balogun, another Arsenal player to cross the English Channel this summer, but it was Marseille’s day to celebrate following a trying week for Igor Tudor, with reports claiming that many members of the Marseille squad were unhappy with his training methods.
Beginning the game with such a convincing victory in front of the home fans was the ideal remedy, as was signing Alexis Sanchez, another ex-Arsenal attacker, after his contract with Inter Milan expired.
By coincidence, Les Olympiens defeated Brest and Marseille in their most recent meeting at the Stade Francis Le-Ble in March. However, Der Zakarian’s team did surprise many by winning on the Orange Velodrome’s surface the previous year.
This weekend’s matchup between two teams that absolutely like attacking has all the makings of being exciting that is, unless the football gods decide to send us a dull goalless draw.
At the Stade Francis Le-Ble, a fully-charged Marseille team ought to easily cruise to their second victory of the year. Such an occurrence should not happen.
