Nice welcoming Rennes in 1/32 finals of the French Cup. Nice is coming here after narrow victory over Montpellier 1:0, while before that were without victory in five matches. It seems that they finally managed to get back on the track, they were eliminated by Guingamp from league Cup and for sure will now give their best to progress further in 1/16 finals here. Nice had decent start of this season but they dropped their form in December and now seems more confident after victory in previous round in league. They are at 5th position at the table in French league with only three points less than 2nd placed Monaco and they have good chances to reach European competitions for the next season. Nice showed good attacking skills and after PSG they are most effective team in France with 32 goals scored in 19 rounds. They must try to find their form before second part of the season starts and for sure will go for victory here in front of their fans. As for absent players, midfielder Hult (6/0) and defender Le Marchand (12/1) are suspended while goalkeeper Pouplin (1/0), forwards Plea (6/2), Le Bihan (3/1), midfielder Traore (7/1) and defender Pereira (11/0) are all injured and won't be able to help their squad in this match.

Rennes on the other hand coming to this match also after victory over Guingamp on the road 0:2 and they ended streak of six matches without victory. They had a good start of this campaign and in first five rounds achieved four victories but since then managed to celebrate only two more times. Rennes currently occupies decent 7th position, in 19 rounds of the league they scored 25 goals while conceded 21. They were also eliminated from league Cup by Toulouse in 1/8 finals after being defeated at home 1:3. Rennes is not in their best shape, they must try to find consistency in their game and improve their form in order to avoid further dropping down at the table. They will for sure try to achieve positive outcome here and progress further in this competition. In last five duels against Nice they achieve d two victories, got two draws and suffered two defeats, one of them was in October in their first duel in this campaign at home 1:4. They have hard task to achieve positive outcome here and must show much more than in previous rounds to achieve some positive result and overcome decent Nice. Defenders Cavare (0/0), Mexer (10/0), Mendes (12/0), Zeffane (10/1), midfielders Gourcouf (0/0), Baal (13/0), forwards Ntep (6/2) and Grosicki (17/5) will all miss this match due to injuries.

This will for sure be interesting match of two decent sides which aren't in their best shape, Nice ended series of bad results in previous round of the league with narrow victory and for sure will give their best to achieve positive outcome in first match in 2016 while Rennes also coming here after victory which ended series of six matches without victory, it will be very hard for them to progress in 1/16 finals but for sure won't be sitting and waiting, I expect interesting and open match and over 2 goals to be scored seems like a good option.
