France Ligue 2 – Brest v Metz Preview (28/7/18)

Match Preview

I think come the end of the season both teams will be right up there in the promotion mixer and not too much will separate them. In some ways it's a shame that they face off here tonight in the opening round. If either had been playing weak opposition I think I’d have baked them. Having said that, Brest do miss key man Julien Faussurier and new signing Yoann Court will have to wait for his debut because of injury as well. I forsee both of these guys having big years for Brest, so to miss both tonight could be important. The odds look about right on the Asian Handicaps and I see no real value either way. If anything, there could be a decent price on the under here. We have an Over 2.25 line set around 1.80 which feels too high. Metz are now managed by Frederic Antonetti and he will not be taking any risks away from home in a game like this. With Brest missing some creativity then I could see a lower scoring affair. A tight 1-0 either way or a low scoring draw is my best guess.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
