Sports Mole previews Lorient's trip to face Brest in Ligue 1 on Friday.
Lorient, searching for their first win in six games, travel to the Stade Francis-Le Ble to face Brest on Friday.
Christian Gourcuff is expected to pack the midfield, with Kevin Monnet-Pacquet in line for a place on the bench. Top scorer Jeremie Aliadiere will almost certainly retain his place in the team.
Meanwhile, Landry Chauvin may choose to shuffle his pack following Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Toulouse.
Eden Ben Basat could partner Jonathan Ayite in a 4-4-2 formation, with Mario Licka dropping out of the starting lineup.
Brest: Thebaux; Mendy, Baysse, Kantari, Lorenzi; Grougi, Lesoimier, Coulibaly, Sissoko; Ben Basat, Ayite
Lorient: Audard; Kone, Mareque, Baca, Lautoa; Romao, Corgnet, Jouffre, Traore, Giuly; Aliadiere
Sports Mole says: 1-3
