Wednesday (kick-off at 9 p.m.), the Auguste-Delaune stadium will vibrate for a Reims-PSG which will award a ticket for the last final of the League Cup, at the Stade de France. Suffice to say that the Red & White of David Guion dream of it. “I find that the players are concentrated, serene. After, we feel that through the outside environment, there is this craze, we saw it Sunday at noon with the Ultrem who came to visit us and encourage us at the end of the training. But we are in our bubble and we work with great serenity, Reims coach explained to the press. Surprise won’t work anymore, they know us well now. And then PSG is the team that gives me the least worries in terms of work because I know that there is no video editing to do: my players know them perfectly. The idea is to be ourselves.“
For this knockout meeting, the coach of the Stade de Reims will have to do without Mathieu Cafaro (thigh) nor Arber Zeneli (reprise). The infirmary being poorly stocked, the choice is wide to face a PSG which remains on 15 matches without defeat (since a trip to Dijon). The eleven of the Stade de Reims could look like this, in a 4-2-3-1: Rajkovic – Foket, Disasi, Abdelhamid, Konan – Chavalerin, Romao – Kutesa, Dingomé, Doumbia – Dia.
