Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that quality has been evident in the Paris Saint-Germain defence. Les Rouge-et-Bleu have been stingy, seeing the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 matches standing at 3. We will have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.

Brest manager Olivier Dall’Oglio has multiple availability issues to deal with. Denys Bain (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jérémy Le Douaron (Heel pain) can’t be considered.
