Lyon take on visitors Brest at Groupama Stadium in a Ligue 1 tie on Wednesday.

The two teams enter the match at Groupama Stadium with ten points separating them in the Ligue 1 standings.

Three points for Brest could go a long way in their quest to reach the top half of the Ligue 1 table. A difficult task awaits, though, as Lyon won't go down without a fight.

Their latest encounter in the Ligue 1 was a belter of a game, which finished with a 2-4 scoreline. An uncommon result, but we would not mind a similar goal fest on Wednesday.

Brest and Lyon seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues on Wednesday, as we aim for both teams to score.
