It’s the shock of the 16th finals of the French Cup ! Olympique de Marseille – in sparkling form since the return of L1 with 4 wins in as many games – welcomes Stade Rennais, which is coming off a prestigious victory against PSG (a meeting to follow live commented on Foot Mercato from 9:10 p.m.). A meeting which opposes two contenders for the final victory in this competition.
As expected, the two carriages took out the heavy artillery. On the one hand Igor Tudor drew his 3-4-2-1 with the return of Kolasinac in defense, Nuno Tavares recovering the role of left piston. Guendouzi and Malinovskyi will support Sanchez, alone in the lead. As for Bruno Genesio, he also puts on a system with 3 defenders. The former Rhone coach was forced to field Alemdar in goal following Steve Mandanda’s package. Truffert and Traoré will be used as a piston. Rennes youth will also be honored with the presence of Ugochukwu in the midfield and Désiré Doué on the left wing.
The official compositions:
Marseilles: Lopez – Leg, Balerdi, Kolasinac – Under, Veretout, Rongier, Tavares – Guendouzi, Malinovskyi – Sanchez
Reindeer: Alemdar – Wooh, Rodon, Theate – Traoré, Ugochukwu, Majer, Truffert – Bourigeaud, Gouiri, Doué
