Four first matches on the program to start this year 2022 and these round of 16 of the Coupe de France, with no surprises in the results on arrival.
On the Brittany side, Brest logically came to the end of a Bordeaux team that was much too weakened by the multiple cases of Covid and which therefore lined up many young players at kick-off.
Dominators, the locals must wait more than half an hour before seeing Romain Faivre cleverly get a penalty, allowing Steve Mounié to open the scoring from 11 meters (1-0, 36th).
Not to miss
In the second half, Honorat notably finds the bar and it is on a second penalty conceded by Pembélé that Romain Faivre comes to fold the case of a panenka (2-0, 81st). A meeting completed by a last but the incoming Le Douaron (3-0, 90th + 3).
A little further south, Nantes hardly trembled to get rid of Vitré. Antoine Kombouaré’s men who take advantage of a good finish from Blas to take the advantage (0-1, 25th), before being clumsy when it comes time to conclude to double the bet.
Mission succeeded in the heart of the second half with this excellent Fabio ball for the stirring Geubbels, who only has to push the leather to the bottom (0-2, 68th). Sure of its subject, Nantes still obtains several hot situations, and validates its ticket for the knockout stages of the competition.
Same success for Toulouse, long jostled on the Croisette by valiant Cannes, but who ended up making the difference thanks to the duo Onaiwu, passer, Ratao, scorer, from the first moments of the second period (0-1, 51st).
Before that, the two teams had had several interesting situations, but came to an end to AS Cannes’ good run in this Coupe de France, while Toulouse started the new year well.
Finally in the last meeting of this early afternoon, Versailles left no suspense by crushing Roche-sur-Yon with four but registered in the first period. A brace from Ibayi, followed by an absolutely superb volley from Traoré and a last goal from Diouf allowed the Ile-de-France residents to continue the adventure.
