Brestois vs PSG predictions, Trying to maintain their 100% start to the 1 season, Paris Saint-Germain travel to Stade Francis-Le Ble to face Brest on Saturday 21 August 2021 at 12:30 AM IST.
Michel Der Zakarian's men held Rennes to a 1-1 draw during their last encounter, while PSG made it two for two with a 4-2 win over Strasbourg.
The departure of Olivier Dall'Oglio was expected to endanger Brest up front, but the formidable nature of Der Zakarian's side has seen them claim two very respectable draws with European hopefuls Lyon and Rennes in the first two gameweeks.
After holding Les Gones to a 1-1 draw in the opening game, Brest looked to be heading for defeat against Rennes when Serhou Guirassy headed in the opener in the 84th minute, but a Der Zakarian-inspired substitution saw Jeremy Le Douaron capitalize on it. his head to save a point in extra time.
After having one of the most fearsome starts in Ligue 1, Les Pirates deserve huge credit for navigating their first two games of the season unbeaten – a result which puts them 11th in the embryonic standings.
Maintaining their unbeaten start to the campaign will be an uphill task against PSG, especially with last week's draw with Rennes extending their winless run at home to six games since a 3-1 success over Dijon on March 3.
However, one cannot bring down Der Zakarian's men for giving it such a good chance, as Brest's 13 shots on target tally from two games is the second highest in the league behind newly promoted shock pack Clermont Foot 63, and PSG are unable to make the trip to the Stade. Francis-Le Ble hopes to win again.
With Neymar and Lionel Messi still watching from the stands, PSG proved in 180 seconds against Strasbourg that their abundant attacking options can get the job done without the South American duo, when Mauro Icardi headed Les Parisiens on goal early on.
Kylian Mbappe – booed by some in the crowd amid ongoing Real Madrid speculation – then saw his effort make a significant deflection from Ludovic Ajorque into the back of the net, while Julian Draxler and Pablo Sarabia completed the win despite responses from Ajorque and Kevin Gameiro.
With their main rivals at Lille, Lyon and Monaco already faltering, PSG's new-look Pochettino – with an interesting quintet of arrivals – are strong favorites to reclaim the rightful Ligue 1 crown, although goal difference means they are bottom. Angers and Clermont are at this very early stage.
The fall and winter wobbles proved costly in PSG's title bid last term, but Pochettino's side have now picked up 25 points from the last 27 on offer in Ligue 1 - winning each of their last four - while eight of their last nine away games. has ended in victory.
Brest welcomed PSG at Stade Francis-Le Ble during the final matchweek of the 2020-21 season, which ended in a 2-0 win for Pochettino's men, and Les Pirates' latest win over the capital's side came back. 1984-85 season.
Brest left-back Jere Uronen was hit in the ankle against Rennes but has returned quickly to the training pitch, while the hosts also had to be encouraged by the inclusion of Haris Belkebla, who also came close to solving the problem in the same area.
Hugo Magnetti's place in the middle could be jeopardized if Belkebla are deemed fit enough to start, but Paul Lasne, Christophe Herele and Sebastien Cibois remain sidelined.
Le Douaron has given Der Zakarian food for thought with his late heroics against Rennes, but Steve Mounie and Irvin Cardona will aim to reprise their roles for now.
Recent reports claim that Messi's PSG debut will come against Reims on August 29, meaning that compatriot Icardi will take the lead this weekend in search of goals in three consecutive games.
Juan Bernat is finally close to recovering from a devastating ACL injury but is not ready yet, while Sergio Ramos and Colin Dagba remain sidelined and Idrissa Gueye has recovered from the coronavirus bout.
Uncertainty remains over the entry of international finalists such as Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Gianluigi Donnarumma, although Pochettino has put the group through their paces in training.
