Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
Olympique Marseille will be aiming to make it to the Coupe de France last 32 when they host Cannet Rocheville to their Stade Velodrome on Sunday. OM did well to beat Strasbourg 2-0 in their last league match, but despite the triumph, they have slim chances of regaining the domestic trophy. As a result, Marseille will surely give their best to go all the way in the French Cup. Poland international Arkadiusz Milik is pushing for a start, as well as Under, Guendouzi, Gerson, and Balerdi.
Cannet Rocheville, on the other hand, eliminated Bastia-Borgo in the previous round to set up a meeting with OM in the last 64. Considering that Jorge Sampaoli’s troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of making a miracle in the oldest city of France. The two teams meet for the first time ever in the French Cup.
