Football expert betting tips for Brest – Marseille

Brest hosts Olympique Marseille at the Stade Francis-Le Bie in a match from the second round of the Ligue 1. Let us preview this fixture for you in our football expert betting tips for today.

 

Brest had a true nightmare in their game in the first round of the league. Olivier Dall’Oglio’s team paid a visit to Nimes and suffered a devastating 0-4 defeat from the hands of the Crocodiles. They conceded goals in both halves of the game and it didn’t end very well.

 

Brest even finished their first game with 10 men on the pitch. In the 77th minute Brendan Chardonnet recieved a red card, so he won’t be playing against Olympique Marseille on Sunday. The manager Olivier Dall’Oglio will have to look for a way to replace his centre-back against OM.

 

Olympique Marseille finished second in the Ligue 1 last season and qualified for the Champions League. It was a very solid debut season for the manager Andre Vilas-Boas. It’s too much to talk about fighting with PSG for the title, but what Marseille could do is be “the best from the rest”. This is precisely what they were during the 2019/20 season.

 

For Olympique Marseille that’s going to be a first official game for the new 2020/21 campaign. Being motivated by their performance in the previous campaign, Andre Vilas-Boas and his boys will aim as high as possible. Qualifying for the Champions League is a must, but could they challenge PSG for the title? In the summer Marseille moved for Villarreal’s Alvaro Gonzalez and Borussia Dortmund’s Leonardo Balerdi, so these new signings could help eventually.

 

That’s our football expert betting tips for the Ligue 1 match between Brest and Olympique Marseille from the second round of the French league. We all expect to see OM starting their season with a win, but let’s see.
