On Sunday, Troyes and Brest will square off in Ligue 1 at the Stade Francis-Le Ble.
In order to use the World Cup break to find the ideal replacement for their recently fired managers, both teams will play with a caretaker manager in charge.

Brest vs Troyes Tips and Prediction
Prior to their most recent encounter in February, 10 of the previous 11 meetings had either ended in a draw or a goal-against decision.
However, Troyes came to this venue in February and was thoroughly beaten by Brest in a match that was crucial for the safety of Ligue 1 at the moment.
However, given that Brest is currently the team in greater danger, things appear to have changed significantly.
They are currently in 19th place with just one victory in their previous 11, including losses to Montpellier at home and Nantes away.
The Stade Francis-Le Ble’s performance has also been dismal, with no home victories, the fewest home points (three), and the fewest home goals in the league (three).
Bruno Grougi’s appointment as interim manager in place of Michel Der Zakarian hasn’t had the anticipated result either; in his four games in command, the former Martinique international has only managed to collect four points.
During the World Cup break, Brest is most likely to appoint a permanent replacement for Der Zakarian.
Troyes have been the best entertainers in Ligue 1 thus far this season, but neither their fans nor their former manager Bruno Irles, who was fired last week, will find solace in that fact.
The Troyes hierarchy decided it was time for a change after Troyes dropped to 14th place and went winless in six games. Claude Robin will take temporary control while they look for a new manager during the World Cup.
They managed to score 11 goals during that six-game losing streak, including three at Parc des Princes, but a loss to Paris Saint-Germain will have been difficult to swallow given that they had twice taken the lead.
Then, only PSG has scored more goals away from home this season than Troyes, yet ESTAC only have six points from their seven away games, so it is obvious that their defense needs to tighten up.
They lost two points against Auxerre late in a draw due to poor defense last weekend as well.
In a match that has historically been quite close, neither team is currently playing especially well, and they may just hope to avoid losing before the lengthy World Cup break.
However, in Troyes’ last seven games, both teams have scored, and Brest’s defense has also been porous, so goals should be virtually likely.
