Reims – Strasbourg : Preview & Prediction
Stade Rémois, 6th, faces Strasbourg, 11th, in this 1/16 final and has the opportunity to drop the holder of the trophy as soon as he enters the contest.

Undefeated since last September 28 in its Auguste Delaune II stadium, Reims notably dropped Montpellier (1-0) twice and St Etienne (3-1) then hung Bordeaux (1-1) and Lyon (1-1) .
