“The Coupe de France or the Champions League are high-level competitions, very attractive and which require us to present the best face of the team.” Signed Luis Enrique on Tuesday, at a press conference. And the “best face of the team” is with Kylian Mbappé, starter and even captain in the absence of Marquinhos, out until the international break, for this quarter-final of the Coupe de France against Nice, this Wednesday (9:10 p.m., live commentary), in Paris. “KM” will be associated with Ousmane Dembélé and Gonçalo Ramos up front. Achraf Hakimi and Bradley Barcola are on the bench. Recruited this winter, the young (20 years old) and promising Lucas Beraldo continues in the 11. Note that Warren Zaire-Emery will play in the right lane.

On the Nice side, a big surprise: brilliant during the Gym’s 3-2 victory at the Parc des Princes in September, Terem Moffi will start on the substitutes’ bench. Evann Guessand and Gaëtan Laborde are the attackers chosen by Francesco Farioli, the latter having relied on a reinforced midfielder in Paris. Remember that the winner of this last quarter-final will face Stade Rennes in the semi-finals. Lyon and Valenciennes (L2) will compete for the other ticket for the final on May 25 at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium in Villeneuve d’Ascq.
