The great adventure continues for the Mahorais des Jumeaux de M’zouazia, who will play the Girondins de Bordeaux. What about the Franciscan club which can face Nice in case of victory against Cholet. Saint-Denis FC is in the best position to qualify, to a lesser extent School Solidarity.
The little ones are waiting for the big ones, it is the ritual of these 32nd finals of the Coupe de France, the draw of which took place this Monday evening at the Parc des Princes. And overseas clubs have been served differently by fate
The Twins of M’zouazia in Aquitaine
But how beautiful the adventure is. After leaving the two Breton clubs of Pledran and Plancoet-Arguenon, the Twins of M’zouazia received their Christmas present before their time: to challenge the Girondins de Bordeaux. Challenge is the word, because the Girondins go from disillusionment to disillusionment in Ligue 1 after their defeat this weekend against Brest.
Executives and supporters are angry, President Lopez even denounced “the unpleasant attitude of the players, in total comfort”. Warm atmosphere on the side of Haillan, the training ground for the pros. For M’zouzia, the challenge is crazy, but in the Coupe de France anything is possible. Fans want to keep writing history.
Saint-Denis FC believes in it
On the other hand, the blow is playable for Saint-Denis FC, which will travel to the Jura to face Jura Sud Foot. The almost repetition of a duel from two years ago where Saint Pierroise won 1-0 in the Jura.
It is therefore playable because Jura Sud is a N2 team, even if it has just eliminated Bourg-en-Bresse, current National leader. So be careful, and it will be really cold there.
Fabrice Abriel football consultant of the 1st is convinced of a qualification of the Dyonisiens
“We have the level that’s clear, against a bottom team of National 2. the only thing to worry it will be the cold, but we have to adapt because we have to be enthusiastic and hope to make a blow there. Reunionese football can finally place a club in 1/16 finals, that would show all its progress in recent years. I believe in it anyway “
The Franciscan club dreams of Nice
The Martinican Club Franciscain in case of victory against Cholet on December 11, will also have to challenge a big one, OGC Nice, current 3rd in Ligue 1 at the Allianz Rivera. An equally difficult challenge. But they will have to beat Cholet first.
The match will take place in the Paris region on December 11, which is an advantage on the public side for Martinicans who are used to moving crowds from the West Indian community to Paris. But before dreaming it will be necessary to leave the Vendéens, who will undoubtedly want to make forget the disappointment of their trip canceled in Martinique because of the social events.
School Solidarity wants to make history
The situation is the same for the Guadeloupeans of Solidarity Scolaire, back at the top of the poster of the Coupe de France after 19 years of absence. They will first have to beat an Alsatian opponent Sarre-Union, frustrated at not having been able to travel to Guadeloupe for the same reasons as before. Then they can think of Versailles.
Patrice Otto’s players have been living in Lisses since Saturday, they will have a whole week to prepare for their 8th round against the members of Nationale 3, but it will be necessary to pass the Alsatian obstacle which has just come out of two clubs, Schiltigeim and Haguenau , higher than them in national 2.
For Luc Sonor, one of our football consultants, there is a mistake to be avoided
“Above all, we must not anticipate qualifying and think of a 32nd finals. There is first an opponent to beat Sunday, a strong opponent, who is used to the cold. But we must not have minimalist speech, from now on Guadeloupe football must progress further and be ambitious.
School Solidarity – US Sarre-Union, Sunday December 5 at 3 p.m. in Evry Bondoufle, the winner will face Versailles in the 32nd finals on Sunday December 18 in Versailles.
