Team News: Brest
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Brest manager Olivier Dall’Oglio to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Denys Bain (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Strasbourg
Strasbourg boss Thierry Laurey has a number of players out of action. Matz Sels (Achilles tendon rupture) and Lebo Mothiba (Knee Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that Strasbourg might need a bit of good fortune to score goals against this Brest outfit who will likely manage to score & go ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for Brest when the full-time whistle blows.
Looking forward to this.
