    High-flying Brest faces Lyon with chance to move closer to first-ever Champions League spot

    With the traditional powerhouses taking a rest, it's a mouthwatering contest between surprise package Brest and a resurgent Lyon side in the French league spotlight this weekend. Following its dramatic 4-3 win against Metz last week, second-place Brest can edge even closer to qualifying for next season's Champions League for the first time in the history of the small club from Brittany, which has one of the league's smallest budgets. “Brest second in the league with six rounds left to play, I don't think you'd have put much money on it,” coach Eric Roy said. With Paris Saint-Germain, Marseille and Lille all engaged in European competitions this week, the league has modified their schedules to give them more time to recover before the second legs.
