Match preview

Will fallen giants Girondins de Bordeaux be back in the headlines for all the right reasons?

Last season, Bordeaux finished rock bottom of Ligue 1, winning just six games, seeing their 28-year stay in the top-flight come to an end.

Right now, les Girondins are second in Ligue 2, needing to remain in the top two to return to the first division at the first attempt.

Meantime, in this competition, David Guion’s team have already had to overcome Stade Bordelais and Trélissac just to get this far.

So, will four-times Coupe de France winners Bordeaux enjoy a memorable victory here?

Stade Rennais meantime won this competition in 2019, beating PSG on penalties, thereby ending their 48-year wait for major silverware.

Right now, Bruno Génésio’s team are fourth again, beating Nice 2-1 on Monday; Benjamin Bourigeaud with an 89th minute winner.

So, Rennes travel to Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux as big favourites, but wary of a possible upset.
