Team News: Monaco
Krépin Diatta (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Cesc Fàbregas (Injury to the ankle) won’t be playing for Monaco gaffer Philippe Clement.
It seems likely that Les Rouge et Blanc will possibly employ a 4-4-1-1 formation for this game and select Alexander Nuebel, Ruben Aguilar, Axel Disasi, Benoit Badiashile, Caio Henrique, Vanderson, Youssouf Fofana, Aurelien Tchouameni, Aleksandr Golovin, Kevin Volland and Wissam Ben Yedder.
Team News: Brest
Owing to a completely healthy group ready to go, the Brest manager Michel Der Zakarian does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
We are inclined to think that Les Ty' Zefs seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation, settling for Marco Bizot, R. Pierre-Gabriel, Christophe Herelle, Lilian Brassier, Jean-Kevin Duverne, Paul Lasne, Lucien Agoume, Hugo Magnetti, M. Youcef Belaili, Irvin Cardona and Martin Satriano.
Our thinking is that Monaco can and should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the same time, Brest are also probably going to find it difficult to get shooting opportunities but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be hitting back at some stage here.
We’re therefore anticipating a decent 3-1 winning margin for Monaco at the conclusion of the game.
