Team News

  • Adbdoulwhaid Sissoko and Johan Martial return from suspension for Brest, who still have a long list of absentees.
  • Alexandre Alphonse isl 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 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.
  • Romain Hamouma is a doubt for Saint-Etienne after he missed the midweek cup clash with a thigh injury.
  • Banel Nicolita is out with a similar problem, while Ismael Diomande, Alejandro Alonso and Danjiel Aleksic are all unavailable.
  • Faouzi Ghoulam and Max-Alain Gradel are both absent due to their participation in the African Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • Brest welcome Saint-Etienne to the Brittany on the back of an impressive 2-0 win at Evian.
  • A penalty from Eden Ben Basat and a strike from Bruno Grougi was enough to give Landry Chauvin's men all three points, but they may have a tough time achieving a similar result against a Saint-Etienne team that overcame Lille on penalties to reach the Coupe de la Ligue Final in midweek.
  • Indeed, Les Verts should certainly be buoyed by their progress in that competition, and they will now hope to resurrect their league form after failing to win for the sixth time in succession with a 2-2 draw against Toulouse last weekend.
  • Brest's home record is an enviable one, Chauvin's side have lost just twice at the Stade Francis Le-Ble, and although Saint-Etienne have impressed in cup competitions this term, they may not have enough to edge a victory here.
