Before the start of the 21st round of Ligue 1, Lyon was only ninth in the league standings, nine points behind Rennes, located in the Liga Conference zone, and 15 points from Marseille and the Champions League competition. In such a scenario, the French Cup may be a priority tournament for Lyon, but it is unlikely they will end Ligue 1. After all, almost half of the season is still ahead. After resuming matches in France, the team lost to Clermont and Strasbourg and played in a draw with Nantes. But in the last two games, Blanc's team has two wins: over Chambery in the French Cup and Ajaccio in the national championship. Lyon's home statistics are the sixth in the division, with 50% of wins and three losses. At the same time, in the last three games at home in Ligue 1, Lyon has not won, which, of course, does not decorate one of the most titled teams in France.
On January 22nd, Brest crashed out of the French Cup, losing on the home field to Lens 1:3. But in the French championship, Brest has a three-match unbeaten streak. They beat Angers 4:0, drew 0:0 with Lille, and 1:1 with Toulouse. Brest is in 16th place in the standings, three points ahead of teams from the relegation zone. Brest's away statistics are 16th in the division, +2=2-6, 12:17 goal difference.
