Le Puy-Rennes, composition: a historic 11 and strong choices for Stéphane Dief

Stade Rennais travels to Geoffroy-Guichard to face Le Puy in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France, this Thursday (8:45 p.m.). Here is the expected lineup for the amateur club.

National 2 formation, can Le Puy 43 continue its epic in the Coupe de France? A real sensation of this edition, the amateur club is at the foot of a mountain since it will challenge an ogre of Ligue 1, Stade Rennais, to try to reach the last four of the oldest competitions.

“What characterizes us the most is the energy that we manage to put on the field and transmit to the stand, added Stéphane Dief, the Puy coach. People appreciate the way we do things and evolve. We don’t have a lot of flaws. We remain a young team. There are times in the match that we could control better”.

A classic 4-4-2 to counter?

With which team will the Puy coach try to create the feat? The technician’s plan is classic and clear: Le Puy will seek to close the spaces to delay the deadline as much as possible, and exploit every opportunity with a quick attack or set piece.

Le Puy could present itself in a very Cartesian 4-4-2 system, with the Adinany-Meyer tandem in attack. Iva and Karamoko are expected to start on the sides, while the Xhemo-Akkal pair would be aligned in midfield in front of an Ayessa-Civet defense.

The expected composition for Le Puy : Carvalho – Diakhabi, Ayessa, Civet, Beneddine – Iva, Xhemo, Akkal, Karamoko – Adinany, Meyer.
