Although this Brest team continues to struggle with keeping the defence tight, the new manager swing was in full force last weekend at the Stade Gabriel-Montpied when Les Pirates defeated Clermont by a score of three goals to one.
As a result, Brest moved up the table to position 17 thanks to its first Ligue 1 victory since August.
Brest will be looking to end their losing streak at the Stade Francis-Le Ble now stands at seven games, and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their 15 Ligue 1 games this season.
At 30, interim Reims manager William Still is one of Europe's youngest managers and feels he can achieve great things with the club.
Reims beat Auxerre 2-1 last weekend showing they are making improvements under their new manager.
Reims' victory over Auxerre impressively marked their fourth straight unbeaten game. As Les Rouges et Blancs had already played out six stalemates in 2022–23, their recent string of draws has contributed to them being 14th in the league.
Brest possible starting lineup:
Bizot; Fagida, Chardonnet, Brassier, Duverne; Camara, Belkebla, Honorat, Pereira Lage, Del Castillo; Le Douaron.
Reims possible starting lineup:
Diouf; Flips, Gravillon, Abdelhamid, Locko; Lopy, Matusiwa; Ito, Doumbia, Zeneli; Balogun.
Expert Betting Tips
Brest should feel encouraged considering their troubles after last weekend's victory over Clermont.
They should get some momentum from it, especially while playing a team that hasn't triumphed in Brest since 2013. Reims, on the other hand, has one of the most dangerous strikers in Ligue 1 in Folarin Balogun. There may be goals in this game, but a home win or a draw is the prediction.
