The door have firmly been left open for the chasing pack to take a run at PSG given the form that the leaders have shown in recent weeks. The Parisians will be looking to end all hope of a title race this season by getting back tow inning ways against Brest in Paris.
Ligue 1 Preview
The pressure is beginning to build on PSG, as fears of history repeating itself could be creeping into the minds of players. They held a healthy advantage just a month ago, and while the gap is still a considerable eleven-point advantage, the recent form that the club has shown would be considerable an issue by Mauricio Pochettino.
PSG have won just once in their last five fixtures in Ligue 1, as they have been held to four draws during their recent run of games. The Parisians have been held in each of their last two games, which has allowed the in-form Nice to cut the advantage to just eleven points after winning their last three.
More dropped points this weekend could offer more hope to the chasing pack. PSG were held for the fifth time in the season last weekend, as Thilo Kehrer scored 14 minutes from time to save a point against Lyon.
Brest will be keen to pick up a win this weekend, as they look to open up a gap between themselves and the relegation places in the league. The French side are currently 13th in the standings, but are eight clear of the bottom three.
Recent form would be a slight concern for the visitors this weekend, as they are winless in their previous three. They have lost twice during that run, which includes a 3-0 defeat last time out against Nice.
PSG vs Brest Head to Head
Brest are winless in their last 12 games in Ligue 1 against PSG. They have averaged just 0.8 goals per game in this fixture, while the Parisians have averaged 2.7. PSG have won the last eight meetings against Brest. Their most recent victory was a 4-2 success on the road earlier in the season.
PSG vs Brest Prediction
The recent form that Brest has shown doesn’t give them much chance of ending their terrible run against PSG. The hosts should have more than enough quality to keep out their visitors this weekend, and that should set them up to claim a 2-0 success in Paris.
