Match Preview: Strasbourg aim to end losing streak against in-form Brest

Strasbourg have lost three consecutive Ligue 1 matches after going unbeaten in six between December and January. They will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat when they host in-form Brest on Saturday.

Strasbourg have not won any of their last three home league matches (2D, 1L), including a 1-0 defeat to Brest last season. They have also lost their last two games at the Stade de la Meinau and have only kept two clean sheets in their 11 home league outings this season, one of the worst records in Ligue 1.

Brest come into this game on the back of an impressive 1-0 win over Marseille, which moved them up to second place in the table. They are now unbeaten in their last 11 Ligue 1 matches (7W, 4D) and will equal their longest unbeaten run in the top flight of French football if they avoid defeat here.

Brest are still dreaming of Champions League qualification and their chances of reaching the competition for the first time could depend on their away form. They have taken the third most points away from home in Ligue 1 this season (18) and will be looking to extend their five-match unbeaten run on the road (3W, 2D).

Players to watch: Strasbourg’s Emanuel Emegha has scored five goals this season, three of which have been the opening goal in a home game. Brest could look to Jérémy Le Douaron, who has scored four Ligue 1 goals this season, including one in the reverse fixture.**

Stat attack: Both teams have scored in each of Strasbourg’s last five Ligue 1 home matches.**
