No overconfidence in sight on the Bourges Foot 18 side, for its entry into the French Cup. The only National 2 club in the department was not spoiled by the sorting since it will go, this Saturday evening, to Blois, a club of the same level and currently second in its group.
Fussy and Trouy can believe it
“It’s a double-edged sword, said Laurent Di Bernardo, after the draw. On the one hand, it’s a shame to face such a team so quickly, on the other, it allows us to keep the pace of the championship and, possibly, to eliminate another contender in the seventh round, synonymous with an exit from league. But we are not there yet. “In search of confidence after losing to Bergerac, the BF18 therefore hopes to take advantage of this elimination parenthesis to revive.
Conversely, the two Cher de Régional 3 clubs still in the running will seek to continue their momentum rather than start a new one. Both Fussy / Saint-Martin / Vignoux and Trouy are unbeaten in the league and these two teams obtained an “affordable” draw at home. Thus, Trouy receives Poulaines (D1, Indre) and Yann Ménard assist his players to take this match at the right end because there is no easy draw for me. I inquired, it’s a great team that we will face, they are aiming for the rise in R3 and have already released two clubs of our level. So beware. “
Five things to remember from the third round of the Coupe de France for clubs in Cher
For the Fusséen coach, Guillaume Onapoy, who will face Saint-Maur (R3), “the objective was to reach the fourth round to have the jerseys allocated. Now it’s just a bonus, but we don’t want to stop there. “
Mehun and Lignières for a feat
On paper, it is in Mehun that the public will attend the most unbalanced poster since the Portuguese club of Mehun (D1) welcomes Vierzon FC (N3). Guillaume Jallerat, the Lusitanian coach, an awareness that he “should an exploit to pass” but he does not forget that three years ago, the Mehunois had pushed the VFC in overtime.
Saint-Doulchard (R2) also favorite part on the lawn of Lignières (D1) but no need to go back three years to see that the Bees are able to eliminate a club of a higher level. Stéphane Vaisson’s players have just eliminated the Portuguese from Bourges, and they would like to do it again against the Dolchardiens who have to face a shortage of attackers.
