Team News

  • With Nolan Roux moving to Lille it could lead to a move up front for Eden Ben Basat. Benoit Lesoimier could then return to the left of midfield.
  • New striker Alexandre Alphonse will most likely start from the bench after making the move from FC Zurich.
  • Larsen Toure is out for the rest of the season with a groin injury.
  • Brest will be without Omar Daf, Mois Brou Apanga, Ahmed Kantari and Ousmane Coulibaly as they are playing at the African Cup of Nations.
  • Javier Pastore will be out for 3-4 weeks with a muscle tear. Kevin Gameiro is set to start up front.
  • Saka Tiene is away on international duty at the African Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • Carlo Ancelotti takes his side to Brittany to face his first Ligue 1 away trip. The Italian will be without the talismanic Javier Pastore as the Argentine will miss up to a month with a muscle tear.
  • Brest will also be without one of their key players after Nolan Roux made the move north to Lille. Only Valenciennes and Nancy have scored less goals than Alex Dupont’s men.
  • This could be a chance for Eden Ben Basat or Jonathan Ayité to step up and prove they deserve their chance as the lone frontman.
  • PSG will still be the favourites, unbeaten in five league games and unbeaten under Ancelotti it will take something special for Brest to stop their run.
  • WHOSCORED.COM Predicts: PSG win 3-1
