Visitors Reims, will be keen to maintain or improve their League position, (fourteenth), when they face seventeenth placed Brest.

Having lost to Clermont Foot in their last game, Bruno Grougi’s men must reset and try to gain a positive result in this match.

Playing at home, Brest have drawn two matches and lost three fixtures.

Injury and illness have depleted Bruno Grougi’s Brest and they will likely be missing one key personnel for Sunday’s match.

Reims’ campaign so far has seen them accrue 12 points this season

Reims will take a huge positive from their recent 2-1 win against Auxerre at Stade Auguste Delaune.

Also, a draw statistic of six in 10 games is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Will Still’s men wishes for ultimately. With 12 points, they currently sit fourteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 4 losses and 6 draws having won two meetings, drawn six matches, and lost four games.

Reims’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Brest. In the 6 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won one game, drawn three fixtures, and lost two games.

A win in this fixture, would take Reims’s points from 12 to 15, so far this season.

Reims’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Will Still, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
