Coached by former Sunderland player Eric Roy, Stade Brest have arguably been one of the stories of the season anywhere in European football. With one of the very lowest budgets in Ligue 1, they head into the final six games of the season firmly in the hunt for a top three finish and potential UEFA Champions League qualification.

Brest come into this one, though, on the back of a thrilling 4-3 defeat to Olympique Lyonnais in their most recent outing last weekend. Brest went a goal behind early on but were leading by three goals to one as they went into the final 20 minutes of the match before a late turnaround was completed by Lyon with Ainsley Maitland-Niles scoring a penalty in the 16th minute of stoppage-time.


Under the management of former Borussia Monchengladbach boss Adi Hutter, Monaco have been one of the most impressive and entertaining teams to watch in Ligue 1 this season. The Monagasque begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting tucked inside the top three and the UEFA Champions League qualifying spots.

The principality club have had a combined total of 91 goals in their 28 matches so far this season. The visitors come into this one on the back of a slender 1-0 defeat of Stade Rennais in their most recent outing a couple of weeks ago with a 25th minute winning goal via Maghnes Akliouche. They are now unbeaten in their last six matches.



There is only one absentee for this weekend’s clash with Monaco as former Norwich City midfielder Pierre Lees-Melou is unavailable due to suspension.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Bizot; Le Cardinal, Chardonnet, Brassier, Locko; Magnetti, Camara; Del Castillo, Doumbia, Satriano; Mounie

UNAVAILABLE: Lees-Melou (Suspended)



Germany international defender Thilo Kehrer is missing through suspension for this weekend, whilst defenders Ismail Jakobs and Guillermo Maripan are out injured.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Majecki; Vanderson, Singo, Salisu, Ouattara; Fofana, Zakaria; Akliouche, Minamino, Golovin; Ben Yedder

UNAVAILABLE: Kehrer (Suspended), Jakobs (Injured), Maripan (Injured)



For much of this season, Brest’s success has been built upon a pragmatic and steady style of football that has seen them limit most of their opposition. However, since the March international break, their three matches have consisted of 15 goals. They now face arguably the most tactically gung-ho side in Ligue 1 in Monaco, as has been mentioned. As a result, an entertaining match up is to be expected for this one this weekend.
