Team News

  • Brest manager Landry Chauvin has very few concerns ahead of this weekend's clash.
  • Alexandre Alphonse is still unavailable due to an achilles problem, while Adama Ba has a back injury.
  • Aside from those injuries Brest are at full strength, and Chauvin will have to decide whether to stick with the side that lost to Lille, or shuffle his pack as he looks to guide his troops to a much needed win.
  • Bastia are set to be without a number of key players
  • Gael Angoula is suspended after being sent-off against Ajaccio, while Jerome Rothen is a doubt with a thigh injury.
  • Ilan is expected to miss out with a similar concern, and Yassin El Azzouzi is still recovering from a long term fitness problem.

Prediction

  • Brest will aim to halt a worrying slide as they take on a Bastia side that continues to entertain and mystify in equal measure.
  • The Corsicans slipped to a thrilling 3-2 home defeat to Valenciennes last weekend, surrendering a one goal lead as their defensive failings cost them dear yet again. Frederic Hantz's men have now conceded 29 times this season, and although they possess a plethora of talent going forward, they may well struggle to get a result against a Brest team that is difficult to beat on home soil.
  • Indeed, while Landry Chauvin's men succumbed to a 2-0 loss at the hands of Lille last time out, they have yet to lose in Brittany this term and will hope that the likes of Eden Ben Basat and Benoit Lesoimier are able to help them maintain that run.
  • Brest will be expected to produce an improved display in front an often raucous home crowd, and with Bastia possessing the worst defence in the division, they should be able to keep their unbeaten home record.
