Team News

  • Reims will be without two of their main strikers for the visit of Brest.
  • Defender Mohamed Fofana is out with a hamstring problem.
  • Gaetan Courtet is still unavailable because of a ligament injury,and with Nicolas Fauvergue a doubt with a calf complaint, manager Hubert Fournier will be expected to stick with Julien Toudic at the head of the attack.
  • Brest manager Landry Chauvin has very few concerns ahead of this weekend's clash.
  • Alexandre Alphonse is still unavailable due to an achilles problem, Adama Ba has a back injury and Ousmane Coulibaly is a doubt with a groin concern.
  • Aside from those injuries Brest are at full strength, and Chauvin will be expected to stick with the side that eased past Bastia last weekend.

Prediction

  • Reims take on Brest this weekend looking to bounce back from a thrashing at the hands of Lyon in the last encounter.
  • Hubert Fournier's side slipped to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the new league leaders, but they will be hopeful of returning to winning ways against a Brest side that has yet to take any points away from home.
  • Indeed, while Landry Chauvin's men have been impressive at the Stade Francis Le-Ble - their 3-0 win over Bastia made it five wins from six in front of their home fans this term - they have yet to make any kind of impression on the road.
  • The men from Brittany will be eager to change that statistic against a Reims side that has struggled for form in recent times.
  • The onus will be placed on Eden Ben Basat and Larsen Toure to deliver the goals and seal their first away win of the term, but although Reims have found life difficult without top scorer Gaetan Courtet, Fournier's troops have more than enough quality to earn at least a point in front of a passionate crowd at the Stade Auguste Delaune.
