Brest Preview – Can Ligue 1 minnows upset their visitors for first win of the league season?

Michel Der Zakarian was something of a coup appointment for Brest this summer. The Armenian was in charge of Montpellier for four years, leading them to as high as sixth place in Ligue 1. With over a decade’s experience of working in French football there’s no doubt he has the knowledge of what it takes to succeed and he’ll be looking to use that know how to advance Brest’s objectives.

As club, Brest were just point above the relegation playoff spot last season in what was their second straight campaign in the top-flight. They’ll be hoping to improve on that this time around and avoid any drama.



Our betting prediction
PSG to score in both halves
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 17 August)

It’s been a solid enough start to the season for Brest and their new head coach. Although they haven’t won either of their matches they remain unbeaten with draws against Rennes and Lyon. Considering they are teams who had top four objectives before the start of the season it’s not bad going. Things get harder for them however as they now chase that first victory against PSG.

It’s a repeat of the final game of last season when PSG won 2-0 albeit not enough to give them the title but just enough to ensure that Brest definitely remained a Ligue 1 club.

PSG Preview – Will PSG continue their 100% to the new season and lay down another mark after last season’s disappointment?

Despite anticipation around seeing Messi play his first minutes as a PSG player, it’s almost certain the club’s supporters and the rest of the footballing world will have to wait a little longer. Their latest signing will likely make his debut in their next game when taking on Reims a week on Sunday. It means PSG will attempt to continue their 100% to the season without him.

Maurico Pochettino’s men have beaten Troyes 2-1 away from home before a more routine 4-2 win at home to Strasbourg last time out. Both results were required after losing last season’s title to Lille as well as the French Super Cup to the same opponent.

There may be no Messi as yet but his countryman Mauro Icardi has started the campaign with a couple of goals. Neymar and Angel Di Maria are also yet to make their debuts for the season after their Copa America exploits but the duo could well take their place in the line-up for this game significantly adding to the attacking quality.

One new signing has starred already, though, Achraf Hakimi is living up to his reputation as one of the best attacking full backs in Europe. He has already scored and assisted goals.

  • PSG – who finished second last season – have started the season with wins over Troyes and Strasbourg
  • The Parisians are looking to record their 10th straight win over this opponent


Brest have proven they can be competitive against the better teams in Ligue 1 but this is different. PSG’s attacking options are far greater than Rennes or Lyon. Even without Messi.
