Full cup for Montluçon Foot and AS Domérat … Last draws in their national league 3 at the start of the season and the only survivors of the district of Montluçon (Allier) still in contention in the fifth round of the Cup by France, have not been spoiled by the draw. Performed this evening, Tuesday 27 September, in Cournon-d’Auvergne, this was marked in particular by the entry into the competition of the National 1 …
Montluçon Foot has just inherited a team of 1, Le Puy Foot 43, currently fourteenth in the league. Only consolation, the match will take place at home, at the Dunlop stadium, probably on Saturday 8 October at 6pm.
Nicolas Laspalles (Montluçon walking coach): “What is positive is playing at home. We always hope to fall on so-called lower tier teams, but there is no truth or hierarchy in the Coupe de France. This competition generates emotions that allow us to create exploits, why not us. Either way, it’s going to be a big party. It is up to us to work to put in the madness and all the other ingredients necessary to try to qualify. “
Same day, same time and same challenge alongside AS Domérat. ASD will have to go to their neighbor Moulins-Yzeure Foot, resident of National 2. Certainly their hen’s red lantern for the moment, MYF is still a formidable opponent for the Domératois.
Cheikh Fall (coach AS Domérat): “It’s a difficult draw. There was better to hope for. I would have preferred a smaller club to have a better chance of going through another round and being able to rotate the squad. Or at least I would have liked to play at home. But it’s still a interesting game, against a team that is in the same psychological situation as us. So I would say it is 50-50, or 60-40 for them because there is a divided division. “
