As the Ligue 1 season advances, the clash between Lyon and Brest on the 14th of April 2024 at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais is poised to be a critical fixture.

Both teams have shown varying forms this season, with Lyon trying to climb up from their mid-table position and Brest maintaining a spot near the top.

Current Form

Lyon's Current Form

Lyon, guided by coach Pierre Sage, has shown a revival in form after a turbulent start to the season.

They've secured three wins in their last four league games, including a commendable 3-1 victory away at Nantes.

However, their home performance has been less stellar, with recent results including a 3-0 loss to Lens and a 1-1 draw with Reims.

This mixed home record might concern Lyon as they prepare to host Brest.

Brest's Current Form

Brest, on the other hand, arrives in Lyon with an impressive away record, having secured victories in seven of their road games this season.

The Pirates have won their last two matches and are looking to continue this streak against Lyon.

Their only setback in recent matches was a narrow 1-0 defeat to Lens, which remains an outlier in their otherwise strong form.

Team News

Lyon's Team News

Despite these suspensions, Brest has no significant injury concerns, which gives them a nearly full squad to choose from for this encounter.
