Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 2
Kick-off:
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Blé (Brest)
As a newly-promoted side, Brest were expected to struggle immensely to retain their top-flight status last season. However, against popular opinion, Les Pirates rose the bar a little higher to secure a respectable league position.

After huffing and puffing throughout the course of the 2019/2020 season, Brest finished 14th on the log, having amassed 34 points from 28 games. Perhaps, they were one of the beneficiaries of the early curtailment of the campaign, and will be delighted with last term’s exploits.

With a new campaign already up and running, Brest will be seeking a strong start to the campaign to keep them within touching distance of the drop-zone. They will need a miracle-of-sorts to manage a favorable result over Marseille this weekend.

Brest vs Marseille Team News

Marseille were outstanding last season, playing out a really impressive campaign. Leaving the media at a loss for words with their show on-the-pitch, Les Olympiens were tipped to challenge serial Ligue 1 champions PSG for the title.

However, Marseille struggled to keep up with the Parisiens as the latter raced to the top of the standings in no time, sending themselves twelve points clear of the chasing pack. Nonetheless, there were lots of positives to take for the Phocaeans.

Having given PSG a run for their money last term, Les Olympiens will be looking to put forth a stronger title challenge this time around. Expected to be right up there alongside PSG and Lyon at the end of the season, it remains to be seen which side eventually clinches the title.

They will be looking to strike a balance between Champions League commitments and domestic football as they target a fruitful campaign. Dall’Oglio’s men have not taken to the pitch for a competitive game since their 2-2 away draw to Amiens in March.

Marseille are in frightening form at the moment, losing just one of their preceding 17 league games – the singular defeat coming against Nantes in February. Also, Les Olympiens are on an eight-game unbeaten run in their outings, the current best record in the French Ligue 1.

To challenge for the title this season, it is imperative for Marseille to begin on a winning note, and a game against struggling Brest presents a golden opportunity. Brest were on the wrong end of a humiliating 4-0 hammering at the hands of fellow strugglers Nimes on the last matchday.

Failing to get a foothold on the game, Nimes dominated proceedings all through and looked good value for the emphatic win. Denkey, Meling, Philippoteaux and Kone got in amongst the goals as Les Pirates were comfortably outclassed.
