Brest predicted XI v Lyon: Eric Roy to revert to one-man attack

Stade Brestois put on an attacking exhibition last week as they beat relegation-fighting FC Metz (4-3), however, having conceded three goals, it is expected that Eric Roy will revert to type when they travel to the Groupama Stadium to face Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday evening. 

Roy deployed two strikers, Martin Satriano and Steve Mounié, for the first time this season and whilst both players got on the scoresheet, the team lacked balance and was exposed defensively. It is expected that only one will start against Lyon and L’Équipe understands that it is Satriano who is likely to get the nod.

Brest don’t have any injury concerns, however, they must contend with two suspensions. Kenny Lala and Jonas Martin will both miss the encounter with Les Gones through suspension.
