THE PREDICTION

Both Pau and Brive enjoyed close 23-22 victories in their previous Top 14 matches, with Brive getting the better of Montepellier at home two weeks ago and Pau overcoming Bayonne away last Saturday. Despite a penchant for the occasional upset, Pau find themselves behind their visitors in the Top 14 table as things stand by one point and with both sides safe from the drop for now this should be an enjoyable fixture indeed. Pau are an explosive, high-scoring side with a pretty porous defence but the table reveals that both these teams have conceded exactly 375 points each after 14 games. Therefore, Pau’s superior points-for record, 330 to Brive’s 280, suggests the home side can outscore their opponents at home. Back Pau to cover -7 here, or to win a match that goes over 40 points.
