PSG vs Brest: Predictions, Odds and Analysis

One thing stands out in this match-PSG has never lost to Brest in 12 meetings. PSG head coach, Mauricio Pochettino has also defeated his matchday opponent, Zakarian, in all three previous encounters. And so, the big question is, do the visitors stand a chance against the Parisians in the Capital on Saturday? Our picks and analysis for this game are as follows:

 Half-time/full-time: PSG @ (1.51)

PSG should not struggle in this fixture despite lacking so many fixtures for this game. The Parisians haven’t lost at home this season. Moreover, they defeated Brest in the last ten meetings. They are also having a nine-match unbeaten run. Brest has suffered some inconsistencies despite showing glimpses of improved performance in the last ten games.

Total goals first half: Over 1.5 @ (1.95)

Our second PSG vs Brest prediction settles on more than a goal in the first half. These teams are having a good scoring form and there is a good chance both will score in this game. At least two goals in the first is our expectation in this game.
