Resident of National 3, the FC Morteau-Montlebon knew how to ask for its two supposed advantages during its 7th round of the Coupe de France this Sunday afternoon, facing Nogent-sur-Seine (Dawn). Play at home, on your favorite lawn – but very wet, oily and cool (5 ° on the thermometer) – from the small Henri Schaller stadium in Montlébon perched on the heights of Morteau in Haut-Doubs, where more than 800 loyal and ardent supporters. And face an opponent evolving a lower division, in Regional 1 where he is however undefeated since the start of the season …
In the end, superb victory (4-0) and qualification : thanks to the goals signed Rachid Benchagra (doubled), Tim Journot and Lucas Gaume which thus allow the Franche-Comté club to pass the 7th lap for the second time in its history only after 2017 (eliminated by Pontarlier at the time)!
And now, the Dijon Ligue 2 pros, still at home
The adventure in the Coupe de France therefore continues for amateur footballers from Morteau-Montlebon who, before kick-off, already knew their next opponent in the 8th round (drawing of lots carried out at the same time as that of the 7th round): he these are the pros of Dijon FCO ! THE’current 16th in Ligue 2, relegated from Ligue 1 this season, had qualified this Saturday evening (3-0 at St-Apollinaire / N3). This poster against the Dijonnais will be played in the Haut Doubs.
