Troyes vs Brest – After losing to FC Lorient last time out in Ligue 1 by a score of 2-0, ESTAC won’t want a repetition of that performance here.
In that game, ESTAC had 48% of the control and 2 of their 9 shots on goal were successful. Six of Lorient’s 16 goal efforts were successful. FC Lorient scored goals from Bamba Dieng (8′) and Stéphane Diarra (92′).
In recent contests, ESTAC has not been able to score often. They will be concerned that ESTAC’s defense has been penetrated in 6 of their previous 6 games, allowing 14 goals in the process. We’ll have to wait and see if that pattern continues in this game.
Looking at their previous outcomes, ESTAC’s last 5 league games against Brest ended in defeat. In the previous 11 league games, they haven’t won at home. Fans at home are not happy.

Franck Honorat was the lone scorer for Brest (44′). Eight of Paris Saint-Germain’s 17 attempts on goal were on target. Kylian Mbappé and Carlos Soler both tallied goals for Paris Saint-Germain.
The numbers tell the story: in 5 of their last 6 games, Brest have allowed goals, scoring a total of 10 goals against them. In Brest’s defense, it appears that there is some softness underneath.

Gauthier Gallon, Erik Palmer-Brown, Adil Rami, Yoann Salmier, Andreas Bruus, Rominigue Kouamé, Xavier Chavalerin, Abdu Conte, Rony Lopes, Wilson Odobert, and Renaud Ripart are expected to start the first half for ESTAC in a 3-4-2-1 formation.
The Brest manager Éric Roy has no fitness concerns to report going into this game with a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
With Marco Bizot, Noah Fadiga, Achraf Dari, Lilian Brassier, Jean-Kevin Duverne, Pierre Lees-Melou, Hugo Magnetti, Haris Belkebla, Franck Honorat, Steve Mounie, and Romain Del Castillo, Les Ty’ Zefs are expected to use a 4-3-3 formation.
