    The final fixture of the weekend in Ligue 1 has the makings of a closely fought encounter as we conclude our football predictions of the French topflight.

    The game between Brest and Marseille will be played on the 18th of February at the Stade Francis-Le Ble. The hosts begin this round of matches in 4th place on 37 points while the visitors are in 8th place on 30 points.

    Brest come into the game having picked up a point last weekend thanks to a 1-1 draw at Clermont in Ligue 1.

    It was a match Brest were hoping to win against the team currently bottom of the league and they took the lead in the 50th minute. However, the lead lasted 19 minutes and Clermont equalised before both teams had players sent off.

    The draw at Clermont means Brest are undefeated in 12 of their 13 most recent fixtures in all competitions.

    They have been struggling to win games recently and Brest have had draws against Nice at home and Paris Saint-Germain away in Ligue 1. There was also a 3-1 defeat at PSG in the Coupe de France.

    Statistic show Brest are on a run of 10 consecutive undefeated matches in the Ligue 1. In their last 10 home games in Ligue 1, Brest have recorded 9 undefeated encounters and have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their 4 most recent league fixtures on home soil.

    Marseille travel to the Stade Francis-Le Ble on the back of a 2-2 draw away to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League playoffs.

    With the score 0-0 at halftime, Marseille scored the first goal in the 64th minute but Shakhtar Donetsk equalised 4 minutes later. Marseille scored their second goal in the 90th minute but Shakhtar Donetsk still had time to equalise.

    The draw against Shakhtar Donetsk means Marseille have failed to win any of their last 6 fixtures in all competitions.

    There have been draws with Strasbourg, Monaco, and Metz at home in Ligue 1. There have been defeats against Lyon away in Ligue 1 and at Rennes in the Coupe de France via a penalty shootout.

    Trends show Marseille are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 league games. However, they have won only 1 of their last 13 away Ligue 1 matches and have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 league games on the road.

    Team news and Brest are without the suspended duo of Mahdi Camara and Marco Bizot. Martin Satriano and Jordan Amavi are both injured.

    Marseille make the trip without suspended defender Samuel Gigot. Jordan Veretout, Amir Murillo, Bilal Nadir, and Valentin Rongier are all in the treatment room.

    Given the recent record of both teams, our prediction is for this match to end level. We could see some goals but few, meaning this game could end in a 1-1 draw.
