Le Puy vs Rennes Preview 


Rennes were merciless against Sochaux (6-1) in the previous round, and that team is playing in a higher division than Le Puy. Anything but a comfortable win for the visiting side would be a major upset.

  • Rennes have won 6 of their last 7 matches (Ligue 1). 
  • Rennes have covered a –1.5 handicap in 2 of their last 3 matches (French Cup). 

Head to Head 


This is going to be the first head to head match between Le Puy and Rennes. 

Le Puy Form 


Le Puy are competing in National 2 league, which is a tier-four division in French football, where they sit in high 2nd place with 32 points gathered through 17 matches. 

Their journey in the French Cup started with three back to back victories against lower division teams like Seyssins 2-0, Chaponnay-Marennes 3-0 and Lyon La Duchere 2-1. They also eliminated two tier-two sides Dunkerque 2-1 and Laval 2-1 in 2024. 

Le Puy also extended their unbeaten streak in the National 2 last weekend to eleven games straight by defeating Olympique d’Ales. 

Le Puy Injuries & Team News 


There are no injuries or suspensions for Le Puy ahead of this match.

Rennes Form 


Rennes were so close to beating the reigning Ligue 1 champions PSG last week, having a 1-0 lead with Amine Gouiri scoring in the first half until 90th minute when Goncalo Ramos scored the equalizer. 

Les Rogues at Noirs were in red-hot form even before that clash, winning six games straight in the league against Clermont twice 3-1, Le Havre 1-0, Montpellier 2-1, Lyon 3-2 and Nice 2-0. 

As for their appearances in the French Cup, Rennes beat Guingamp 2-0 and Marseille after a penalty shootout (1-1 in regulation). They also cruised past Sochaux 6-1 in the previous round with Amine Gouiri and Arnaud Kalimuendo scoring two goals each. 

Rennes Injuries & Team News 


Fabian Rieder, Enzo Le Fee and Mahamadou Nagida are injured.

Verdict

Rennes are one of the hottest teams in France, winning six of their last seven league games and almost beat PSG last weekend. I don’t see them struggling against a tier-four side, so an away win in handicap is tipped.
