Match preview

The Coupe de France last 32 kicks off with this Friday night clash that most would agree is the tie of the round.

Olympique de Marseille are ten-times winners of this competition, although they haven’t lifted any major silverware since beating Lyon in the Coupe de la Ligue Final of 2012.

Right now, les Phocéens are in terrific form, winning six consecutive Ligue 1 matches, most-recently beating Lorient 3-1 on Saturday.

Sead Kolašinac, Alexis Sánchez and Jordan Veretout on target.

This means Igor Tudor’s team have moved up to third, just five points below Paris Saint-Germain.

Even so, this trophy is, by some distance, Marseille’s best shot at ending their silverware draught in 2023.

This though will be an infinitely tougher challenge.

Stade Rennais are currently fifth in Ligue 1, a mere five points worse off than their hosts, and will be buoyant, following a famous victory on Sunday night.

Hamari Traoré was the only scorer as Bruno Génésio’s side, again, beat champions PSG at Roazhon Park.

Les Rouge et Noir lifted this trophy just four years ago, defeating PSG in the final, and began this campaign with a tough road victory over Bordeaux.

Benjamin Bourigeaud and Jérémy Doku on target at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux 13 days ago.

Back in September, these two clubs drew 1-1 at Stade Vélodrome, with Mattéo Guendouzi, bizarrely, scoring for both teams.

This time, there must be a winner, so who will book their place in the last 16?
