Brest coach Landry Chauvin is without midfielder Benoit Lesoimier for the visit of the league leaders, adding to the injured Alexandre Alphonse in the treatment room at Stade Francis-Le Ble on Friday night.
Former Montpellier star Geoffrey Dernis could deputise on the left, with Israeli international Eden Ben Basat shrugging off a knock to feature ahead of Charlison Benschop.
For Paris Saint-Germain, Brazilian midfielder Nene is unlikely to make the group after admitting on Wednesday that he wants to quit the league leaders at the end of the season.
Alex is unlikely to recover from his injury, sustained away to Valenciennes last week, leaving Mamadou Sakho to continue alongside captain Thiago Silva.
