The round of 16 of the Coupe de France will begin this Friday with a tantalizing clash between Olympique de Marseille and Stade Rennais, two candidates for the succession of FC Nantes.
What time for OM – Rennes?
No Ligue 1 this weekend, but the Coupe de France! And what better than a clash between two of the best clubs in the championship to start these four days of madness? The draw having done things well, this match between Marseilles and Rennes was scheduled this Friday, January 20 at 9:10 p.m. at the Stade Velodrome. This part will be arbitrated by Stéphanie Frappart.

On which channels to follow OM – Rennes?
In this new year 2023, the Coupe de France has changed its main broadcaster to beIN Sports. Suffice to say that this clash between OM and SRFC will of course be broadcast on beIN SPORTS 1. But not only since it will also be accessible to the general public since it will also be televised on the antenna of France 3 clear. Good news for all football fans, who will be able to watch this Cup match for free. On beIN, comments will be provided by Christophe Josse and Daniel Bravo, while Fabien Leveque and Djibril Cissé will be at the microphone on FR3.

The probable line-ups of OM – Rennes:
In lack of a trophy since 2012, Marseille dreams of winning the Coupe de France this season, which would be a first since 1989. But for that, it will be necessary to dominate Rennes after having done the job against Hyères in the previous round. Except that for this round of 16, Igor Tudor will be deprived of a few major players, like Clauss and Bailly, while Nuno Tavares will return from suspension.
The probable composition of OM: Blanco – Balerdi, Gigot, Mbemba – Kaboré, Rongier, Veretout, Kolasinac – Malinovsky, Alexis Sanchez, Payet.
Following its fine victory against PSG last weekend, Rennes hopes to achieve another great performance on the lawn of Marseille this weekend in the Coupe de France. Even if for this, Bruno Genesio will be faced with many absences, such as those of Mandanda, Terrier, Xeka or Kalimuendo.
The probable composition of Rennes: Alemdar – Wooh, Rodon, Theate – Traoré, Majer, Ugochukwu, Truffert – Bourigeaud, Gouiri, Doku.
