-----------------------------------

Rumilly Vallieres and Le Puy F43 Auvergne square off in the Coupe de France on Wednesday looking to earn a surprise place in the quarter-finals.

 

With both clubs currently plying their trade in the fourth tier of French football, four ties have already been negotiated to reach this stage of the competition.

 

Match preview

At the start of the season, Rumilly Vallieres and Le Puy were solely focused on trying to earn promotion from their respective divisions in the French pyramid.

 

However, both of the minnows now find themselves in a position where they can move into the last eight of the Coupe de France for the first time in their history.

 

Rumilly currently sit in 11th position in National 2, Group C, having put together a four-match winless streak in that division.

 

Fatsah Amghar's side have also failed to emerge victorious during 90 minutes in three of their four ties in this competition, instead relying on penalty shootouts.

 

While they thrashed league rivals Saint-Priest 5-1 in one of the earlier rounds, Rumilly have scored just once in three matches played since February 21.

 

The home side have reached the last 16 courtesy of fixtures against teams outside of Ligue 1, a route shared for the most part by Le Puy.

 

However, Le Puy recorded a 1-0 win over top-flight outfit Lorient in the previous round, the decisive goal being scored by youngster Lenny Joseph in the 61st minute.

 

The visitors have responded to relegation from the third tier last season by claiming 16 points from eight games, putting them in third spot in National 2, Group D.
