Le Puy, the lowest-ranked team remaining in the 2023-24 Coupe de France, is set to face Rennes in a quarter-final clash. Having previously reached the last 16 in the 2020-21 Coupe de France, Le Puy, who competes in Championnat National 2, has made history by advancing to the quarter-finals for the first time in the club’s history. Avoiding stronger opponents has contributed to Le Puy’s progress, with victories over Ligue 2 teams Dunkerque and Stade Lavallois in the current campaign.

Sitting in second place in Group A of Championnat National 2, Le Puy extended their unbeaten streak to 16 matches with a 2-0 win over Olympique d’Ales, setting the stage for their top encounter with Rennes. Despite the respect earned by Le Puy, any warmth between the two teams will likely disappear once the match begins. Rennes, led by manager Julien Stephan, seeks their second Coupe de France title, having previously won in the 2018-19 season.

Stephan’s return has seen Rennes achieve knockout wins over Guingamp, Marseille, and Sochaux since the start of the year. History is on Rennes’ side, as they have progressed from each of their last six quarter-final ties. Although they faced a setback in the Europa League against AC Milan, Rennes extended their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to eight matches with a commendable 1-1 draw against Paris Saint-Germain. Currently in seventh place in Ligue 1, Rennes aims to secure a spot in Europe through the Coupe de France but must beat Le Puy to avoid a humiliating exit.
