>> The essential
One last test before Europe.
In Brittany, the stakes will be twofold for PSG: to qualify for the knockout stages of the Coupe de France and to gain confidence before the eagerly awaited reunion with Barcelona on Wednesday in the Champions League.
Without Navas, left to rest, Florenzi, Kean and Neymar, still unavailable, but with Mbappé, Di Maria and Verratti, back, the capital club must win in Brest and protect themselves from possible injuries.
Holding the trophy, PSG wants to continue after a success against Caen in the 32nd final.
On July 24, the Parisians dominated Saint-Etienne in the final (1-0).
>> Live this meeting between Stade Brestois and PSG minute by minute:
Head to Brest, and not to Barcelona?
Beware of the trap for Mauricio Pochettino's men.
This Saturday, they will have to keep in mind the qualification for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France and ignore the shock against Barça that awaits them on Wednesday, in the Champions League.
If the SB29 knows itself to be less strong on paper, its ambitions are clear.
“Paris wants to win everything.
But we are here to do the feat, warned coach Olivier Dall'Oglio.
Football and the Coupe de France are irrational.
If there is a flaw, we have to jump into it.
Winners of the competition for the 13th time in their history last July (1-0 success against Saint-Etienne in the final), the Parisians want to continue their momentum after their qualification in Caen on February 10.
