Team News

  • Rennes will be without midfielder Yann M'Vila, who misses out with a knee problem, while Abdoulaye Sane and Victor Montano are still yet to recover from long term injuries.
  • Frederic Anotnetti has no other injury problems to deal with however, and should be able to field a similar side to the one that beat Troyes.
  • Brest manager Landry Chauvin will be able to call on top scorer Eden Ben Basat, who returns from suspension after missing the defeat to Marseille. Jonathan Ayite is also available after regaining full fitness.
  • Alexandre Alphonse is still unavailable due to an achilles problem, while Adama Ba has a back injury. Brahim Ferradj is also set to be absent due to a knee problem.

Prediction

  • Rennes will look to surge into the upper reaches of the Ligue 1 table when they take on Brittany rivals Brest.
  • Les Rouges et noirs fought back from two goals down to earn a 3-2 win over Troyes last weekend, as Romain Alessandrini, Julien Feret and Jonathan Pitroipa all hit the target in a dramatic encounter.
  • Meanwhile Brest suffered their first home defeat of the season as they fell to a 2-1 loss at the hands of title challengers Marseille. However, Landry Chauvin's men will be confident of victory over their near neighbours after comfortably beating fellow bretons Lorient earlier in the campaign.
  • Top scorer Eden Ben Basat will be expected to play a big role in what should be a fiery contest, but with Rennes spurred on by their home crowd, they should be able to edge their way to a slender win.
