TEAM NEWS

Brest’s former France international Bernard Mendy is set to earn a recall at right-back as Ousmane Coulibaly is suspended. The hosts have major worries in attack as Jonathan Ayite and Nicolas Verdier – their best two strikers – are doubtful.

Metz welcome back seven-goal top scorer Diafra Sakho after he missed their last game through suspension. But centre-half Sylvain Marchal and right-back Romain Metanire are both out, as is midfielder Ahmed Kashi.

 

Brest
Suspended: Ousmane Coulibaly, Johan Ramare
Doubtful: Jonathan Ayite (calf), Benoit Lesoimier (thigh), Johan Martial (abdomen), Nicolas Verdier (thigh)
Injured/unavailable: Abel Khaled (ankle)

Metz
Suspended: Ahmed Kashi, Romain Metanire
Doubtful: None
Injured/unavailable: Moussa Gueye (knee), Guido Milan (leg), Sylvain Marchal (ankle)

 

MATCH PREVIEW

Newly-promoted Metz have started the season so impressively critics are already drawing comparisons with Bastia. A couple of years ago Bastia went from National (France’s third division) to Ligue 1 in consecutive seasons, and the press rightly see Metz as the best-equipped of this season’s three promoted sides to do the same thing. Coach Albert Cartier, however, has been keen to play down expectations, fearing it may put his players under too much pressure.

Expectations are pretty low at Brest because they’re languishing in mid-table but their last game was a reason for Alex Dupont’s side to be more optimistic: they went 1-0 down away to an excellent Tours side but fought back impressively, drew 1-1 and had enough chances to have won. The confidence they’ll have gained from that result and performance, plus the fact some important players are missing for Metz, means Brest should manage to avoid defeat. A win may be beyond them considering how solid Metz have been but a draw should be well within Brest’s means.

 

HEAD TO HEAD

Brest’s home record against Metz is W6-D3-L4.
