Wednesday Ligue 1 action from the Stade de la Beaujoire, as Nantes take on Brest.

This clash sees tenth placed Nantes, welcome eighteenth placed Brest to the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Nantes arrive at this match, having secured seven points so far this season

Nantes will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten Angers SCO 1-4 in their last match.

League success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so three losses in four matches would not make this a successful season for Nantes. With seven points, they currently sit tenth in the League having won two games, drawn one game, and lost three fixtures.

Playing at home, Nantes have won one game and lost two games.

A win in this fixture would take Nantes’s points to 10 in the League.

Nantes’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Antoine Kombouare, ahead of this Wednesday’s fixture against their opponents.

Brest have so far accrued four points in this season of the Ligue 1

Brest dropped points against Clermont Foot, only managing a 1-1 draw, having previously drawn 1-1 to Angers SCO, so the team will want to win this game to move their season forward.

Brest have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. They currently stand eighteenth in the League, with four points drawn four meetings and lost two games.

Brest have drawn two fixtures and lost one game of their three League matches away from home this season.

Brest will have 7 points if they manage to secure a victory.

It is likely that six key players will miss Wednesday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Michel Der Zakarian and his Brest team.
