Team News

  • Troyes will still be without Stephane Drouin, who has a groin problem, while Sebastien Grax is unavailable with a knee injury.
  • Mohamed Yattara is out with a hamstring complaint, and Georges Gope-Fenepej is also set to miss out.
  • Brest have been decimated by absentees, with many of their squad injured or away on international duty.
  • Alexandre Alphonse is out with an achilles injury, and Benoit Lesoimier has a calf complaint.
  • Paul Baysse is also sidelined with a knee injury, Adama Ba is struggling with a back problem, but Jhon Culma should be back after missing the last game due to illness.
  • 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

  • Troyes will try and recover from a disappointing loss last weekend when they welcome Brest to the Stade de L'Aube.
  • Jean-Marc Furlan's men were came off second best in a fantastic encounter with high-flying Lorient, eventually losing 3-2 despite threatening a late comeback.
  • Meanwhile Brest fell to a slender defeat against Saint-Etienne, but they may well have the edge against a Troyes defence that is notorious for leaking goals.
  • However, Furlan's side seem to have found the goalscoring touch in recent times, and with Brest possessing one of the worst away records in the division, a much needed win for the relegation threatened outfit would not be that much of a shock.
