French Cup Preview
It is a quiet weekend in terms of club action around Europe, with domestic action in France taking centre stage. The round of 16 of the French Cup gets underway on Friday evening, with Nantes playing host to Brest at the Beaujoire Stadium.
The advantage certainly stands with Nantes coming into this French Cup showdown, as they have a dominant record overall against their opponents. We can’t see that positive record ending this weekend, and expect Nantes to progress through to the next round.
Brest come into this break from league action in 13th place in the Ligue 1 standings. They have won just five of the 22 games that they have played this season, but remain nine clear of the drop zone in the French top-flight.
Brest have certainly looked vulnerable in recent weeks, as they have won just once in their last five. However, that sole victory did come last weekend. They picked up a massive win in the last round of the French Cup, as Brest beat Montpellier 3-0 at home. Steve Mounie and Romain Faivre both scored penalties in the comfortable success.
Both Nantes and Brest are in solid enough positions in the league standings to make a good run at the French Cup this season. Nantes are sitting ninth overall, and are two points outside of the European places. Their recent form has also been relatively strong, as they have won three times in their last five games.
Nantes vs Brest Head to Head
