FC Metz v Stade Brestois 29: Coupe de France Preview

Last season FC Metz were deservedly crowned Ligue 2 champions, winning the league by eleven points and losing just six games. However, the transition from Ligue 2 to football at France’s highest level hasn’t gone as smoothly as either Les Messins’ coach Albert Cartier or their supporters would have hoped at the beginning of the current league campaign.
