> THE ESSENTIAL
In a rather muddled and mediocre first period, Toulouse had the good idea to quickly open the scoring (1-0, 21st). By being more incisive, they managed to be slightly superior to their hosts who raised their level in the last quarter of an hour. It took a superb flight from the local goalkeeper to slam a header from Moraes Pereira for a corner. This rise in power is held as long as the TMFC is solid with large templates who know how to strip themselves.
As soon as he returns from the locker room, Bilhère stands out again! A superb collective attack allows the locals to widen the gap with the Ngamb conclusion which rewards his great activity and a lot of self-sacrifice. Barely two minutes later, a penalty converted by Auvinet brings suspense back.
The expulsion of goalkeeper Germain, who sacrificed himself after a bad pass from one of his own, will allow Ben Brahim to score on a small blocked shot which took the makeshift goaltender against the grain. Victory of Toulouse certainly but rather laborious.
In Toulouse, goalkeeper Bilhère Dieuzeide, a little before the break and just after, made two decisive parades which allowed the group to stay ahead. The Ngamb, Maurice and Ben Brahim attack displays enormous qualities if only the finish is missing.
The Auscitain Boyer weighs and sends caviar to each of its centers. Peres runs, runs, usefully, but in vain.
> THEY SAID
Bouba Hernandez (Toulouse coach): “We made the necessary start by scoring quickly. Behind, Auch has gained momentum and our goalkeeper made two saves to leave us in the match at 1-0. When we put the second, there is more space but we concede an avoidable penalty. I also saw a very good Auch team, it must be said. “
Gilles Garcia (Auch coach): “In the Cup, we don’t give a damn about the way, we have to get past the point. You have to know how to be a good player too and the victory of the TMFC is not illogical. We have a group in reconstruction and a lot of damage we deal with. young people must quickly, very quickly even! “
