In the 1/8 finals of French Cup, Red Star host St Etienne.
Red Star play in the National football league (3rd league) and they are one of the main candidates to promote in Ligue 2.
They are playing very good at home where they lost only once this season. They are semi-pro football team, but they definitely have a quality to play in Ligue 2.
They miss only one important player for this game – their second top scorerBellion (17/6 f).
St Etienne is in a very poor form with only one win in their last 6 matches.
For them is more important to qualify in some of the European competitions next season. It doesn’t mean that they are not interested in this competition.

Bayal Sall (17/1 d), Pogba (13/1 d), Clerc (5/0 d), Cohade (17/1 m), Corgnet (14/0 m), Diomandé (10/0 m), Lemoine (24/2 m), Monnet-Paquet (19/1 f) and their second top scorer Gradel (18/4 f) are all out.
