Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
Dinan play host to Brest at their Stade Fred-Aubert in the Coupe de France last 64. Dinan set up a meetin with Brest by beating the likes of Caen and Saint-Malo on penalties, but the Ligue 1 outfit will pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Les Pirates are desperate to make amends for a heavy 4-0 loss to Montpellier, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course.
Defender Brendan Chardonnet is back from the Ligue 1 ban, while all Magnetti, Cardona, Said, and Lasne are pushing for a start. Anyhow, David faces Goliath at Stade Fred-Aubert, and we predict that the favourites are going to prove their worth on the field. Keep in mind, though, that both Romain Del Castillo and Sebastien Cibois continue to miss out with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Steve Mounié):
Steve Mounie is a Beninese footballer who plays for Huddersfield Town as a striker. Mounie is a product of Montpellier youth academy and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the blue and orange shirt in Ligue 1 at senior level.
After scoring 14 goals in 37 appearances for la Paillade in the French elite division, the 190-cm-tall attacker moved to Huddersfield Town in 2017, but it has to be noted that he spent the 2015/2016 season at Nimes as a loan player. Steve Mounie signed a four-year deal with the Terriers and he made his competitive debut for the club on August 12, 2017, scoring a brace in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The attacker who was born in Parakou (Benin) on September 29, 1994 will represent the Benin national team at the 2019 Africa Cup of nations. Mounie scored his first ever goal for the national team in a 2-1 win over South Sudan in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
