The hosts have just one win in their last five league outings and suffered a 2-1 loss at struggling Saint-Etienne on Saturday. They are looking for a place in the upper half of the league standings. Brest trail tenth-placed Nantes by eight points, so they need to avoid dropping points for the rest of the season.
Lyon, meanwhile, are undefeated in their last four league outings and secured an emphatic 6-1 win at home against Bordeaux last time around. They are in eighth place in the league standings with 49 points and are in contention for a UEFA Europa Conference League playoff spot.
