Will AS Monaco safely book their place in the last 32?
Les Monégasques are five-times winners of the Coupe de France, although the most-recent of these came in 1991, when Arsène Wenger was in charge.
Monaco did reach the 2021 final, but were beaten 2-0 by Paris Saint-Germain at an eerily silent Stade de France.
Right now, Philippe Clement’s team are fifth in Ligue 1, beating Brest 1-0 on New Year’s Day, courtesy of Aleksandr Golovin’s casual screamer.
So, will les Rouge et Blanc prevail in this tie?
Rodez meantime are currently just above Ligue 2′s relegation zone, seeking to extend their four-year stay in the second-tier.
In the Coupe, Rodez beat Saint-Étienne on penalties in round seven, before ousting Rochet Saint Gernest back in November.
Thus, they’re aiming to get beyond this stage for the first time in 14 years.
A home win though appears likely at Stade Louis II.
