Dijon have lost to Angers and Lyon thus far, while Brest are currently bottom of the table following defeats to Nimes and Marseille early on in the season.
While Dijon were unfortunate to walk away from their opening-weekend encounter with Angers with nothing to show for their efforts, Stephane Jobard's men were simply no match for the attacking prowess of Lyon.
Barcelona-linked Memphis Depay netted a hat-trick - including two penalties - and Dijon ultimately succumbed to a 4-1 defeat against last season's Champions League semi-finalists in their first away match of the campaign.
As well as Brest, Strasbourg are the only other side who have no points on the board after two games of the new season, and Dijon will be fighting an uphill battle to avoid the drop should they carry on in the same vein.
A meeting with bottom-of-the-table Brest represents a prime opportunity for Jobard's men to kickstart their season, and Dijon's home form is actually very encouraging - their loss to Angers on the opening weekend was their first league defeat at home for nearly a year.
Dijon had strung together a 12-game unbeaten streak at the Stade Gaston-Gerard prior to the visit of Angers - a run which included a 3-0 triumph over Brest back in February.
As far as Brest are concerned, the league's basement side have now conceded seven goals in their opening two matches as they bid to avoid the drop once again.
Brest suffered a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Nimes in their first game back, and even though Olivier Dall'Oglio's side gave Marseille a brilliant run for their money in the second round of fixtures, Brest were eventually defeated 3-2 by the Ligue 1 giants.
However, there is no need for the Brest faithful to be discouraged by the early-season rankings - Dall'Oglio's men still have plenty of time to turn their fortunes around and try to secure a respectable finish in the French top flight.
Les Pirates occupied 14th spot when the 2019-20 season was curtailed - 11 points clear of the bottom two - but Brest now only have one win to show from their last nine Ligue 1 outings.
Despite suffering a 3-0 defeat to Dijon last time out, Brest did manage to prevail 2-0 at home last October, with their other three victories against Jobard's men since 2005 coming when the two clubs played in the second tier.

Jobard's men have signed Roger Assale from BSC Young Boys to replace their former captain, but the striker will not be expected to feature so soon after joining, meaning Aurelien Scheidler is set to keep his place up top.
Anibal Chala will be holding out for a recall on left-hand side of defence after being named amongst the substitutes for the defeat to Lyon.
Dijon possible starting lineup:
Gomis; Chafik, Manga, Panzo, Chala; Cheikh, Ndong, Amalfitano; Ebimbe, Scheidler, Chouiar
Brest possible starting lineup:
Larsonneur; Pierre-Gabriel, Herelle, Duverne, Perraud; Diallo, Belkebla; Tavares, Charbonnier, Faivre; Cardona
We say: Dijon 2-2 Brest
Both clubs should feel capable of walking away from this encounter with all three points and will be equally desperate to avoid recording a third loss on the bounce early on in the campaign. However, given the competitive nature of this clash, we expect the two sides to cancel each other out and are backing a high-scoring draw this Sunday.
