Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
After failing to spoil PSG’s party at Parc des Princes, Toulouse will look to get back on course when they face Reims at Stadium Municipal in the Coupe de France last 16. Toulouse rolled over Troyes 4-1 in their last home fixture, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Reims. All Genreau, Healey, and Keben are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the home team.
The visitors, on the other hand, continue to produce fine displays under “football manager” boss William Still. Even though les Rouges et Blancs are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that they will hold Toulouse to a draw in Wednesday’s showdown. As for the visiting side, all Holm, van Bergen, and Duparchy remain on the sidelines with injuries. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last four meetings in the French top flight.
Highlighted Team (Reims):
Reims are a French football club founded in 1931. Reims welcome their rivals at Stade Auguste Delaune, which can hold up to 21,684 people. Believe it or not, Reims won six Ligue 1 titles (1948/1949, 1952/1953, 1954/1955, 1957/1958, 1959/1960, 1961/1962). To make things even better for the fans, Reims participated in the European Cup final on two occasions.
In 1956 they faced Real Madrid in the title game and despite taking the lead after six minutes, the French side eventually suffered a 4-3 loss to los Blancos at Parc des Princes. Three years later Reims had a chance to get their revenge on Real Madrid, but the Spanish giants once again won the European Cup, with Mateos and Di Stefano finding the net in the 2-0 victory over Albert Batteux.
The club’s most notable footballer is Just Fontaine, who scored 13 goals for France at the 1958 FIFA World Cup finals. Reims’ home colours are red and white, with the team wearing white when playing on the road.
