Rennes is getting better!

They too qualified following a penalty shootout in the previous round (against Marseille 1-1, 9-8 TAB), and they too are on an unbeaten streak of 7 matches. After a complicated start to the season, the departure of Génésio and the arrival of Stephan changed everything. Since then, the Bretons have been gaining places in the rankings and are moving up little by little (9th with 29 pts). This French Cup presents itself as a real opportunity to save the poorly started season, by seeking the trophy, but above all the qualification for the Europa League that it represents.


Sochaux to achieve a (new) feat

The Montbéliard club hosts a Ligue 1 team for the third time in a row. After two remarkable qualifications obtained at the end of the suspense, against Lorient (2-1) in the last minute, and against Reims on penalties (2- 2, 6-5 TAB), the Cubs will oppose a Rennes in form. They too are, their series of 7 undefeated matches allows them to be at the foot of the National podium (4th with 29 pts). The Sochaliens are on a good dynamic, to continue this evening!
