Team News

  • Evian are set to be without a number of first team regulars.
  • Guillaume Lacour has a thigh injury, Ali M'Madi has yet to regain full fitness and Stephan Andersen is a doubt through illness.
  • Cedric Mongongu, Jonathan Mensah, Mohammed Rabiu, Djakaridja Kone and Saber Khlifa are all on African Cup of Nations duty and will be absent for the foreseeable future.
  • Brest have also seen their squad decimated by a long list of absentees.
  • Alexandre Alphonse is still out with an achilles injury, Larsen Toure has a thigh problem, and Benoit Lesoimier has a calf complaint.
  • Paul Baysse is also sidelined with a knee injury, Abdoulwhaid Sissoko is still suspended, Jhon Jairo Culma is a doubt due to illness and Adama Ba is struggling for fitness.
  • The African Cup of Nations has also had a big impact on Brest's squad depth with Ismael Traore, Ahmed Kantari, Kamel Chafni, Ousmane Coulibaly and Jonathan Ayite all preparing for the tournament.

Prediction

  • Evian take on Brest in Annecy hoping to pull away from the relegation zone with a much needed win.
  • Les Roses have won just two of their last six outings in the league, and currently sit just one place above the bottom three. They can have hope of obtaining a victory on Saturday however, as they face a side set to be much changed due to a large number of absentees.
  • Indeed, Brest are set to be without many first-team regulars, but they will have top scorer Eden Ben Basat at their disposal. The Israeli striker has enjoyed a strong season so far, and will look to find the net again against a leaky Evian defence.
  • Both teams have been hit hard by the upcoming African Cup of Nations, and with neither side in any sort of form, a nervous and uninspiring draw is perhaps the most likely outcome.
