🗞️ Team News: Brest
The Brest manager Éric Roy will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a completely injury-free group available for selection.
In all likelihood, Les Ty' Zefs could employ a 4-1-4-1 system for this game, beginning the first half with Marco Bizot, Kenny Lala, Brendan Chardonnet, Lilian Brassier, Jean-Kevin Duverne, Pierre Lees-Melou, Franck Honorat, Haris Belkebla, Romain Del Castillo, Jeremy Le Douaron and Steve Mounie.
🗞️ Team News: Clermont Foot
With a fully healthy group ready to go, the Clermont Foot boss Pascal Gastien does not have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game.
We reckon that Clermont Foot might play in a 3-4-3 lineup, starting the game with Mory Diaw, Alidu Seidu, Mateusz Wieteska, Maximiliano Caufriez, Jim Allevinah, Johan Gastien, Yohann Magnin, Neto Borges, Saif-Eddine Khaoui, Grejohn Kyei and Elbasan Rashani.
We’re inclined to think that Clermont Foot will have to perform well to be putting a goal past this Brest lineup who we reckon should score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore anticipating a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 advantage for Brest when the full-time whistle blows.
Hoping for a good game.
