The year 2023 is off to a very strong start in Ile-de-France with the round of 32 of the Coupe de France, the Coupe Gambardella and the Women's Coupe de France.
Without forgetting several late matches in National, National 2 and National 3 which could allow Red Star, FC 93 Bobigny and Aubervilliers to carry out great operations.
The poster of the weekend: Linas-Montlhéry challenges Lens, the last scorer of PSG
The schedule (6 p.m. on a Friday), new broadcaster (BeIN) obliges, made the supporters cringe.
The Charléty stadium and its damaged lawn should therefore ring hollow for the Paris FC-Valenciennes match which will launch the weekend of the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France.
The atmosphere will go up a notch on Saturday at the Robert-Bobin stadium in Bondoufle where more than 10,000 people are expected.
For its third round of 32 in four years, Linas-Montlhéry, relegated to National 3, welcomes Lens, 2nd in L1 who have just beaten PSG (3-1).
A magnificent poster and a great challenge for the Essonnien club.
“When we see this team today, we wonder above all how to avoid taking a suitcase, recognizes coach Stéphane Cabrelli.
There, we are on a team that has a higher dimension.
It is perhaps the best team collectively in France.
The ball, they are the ones who will have it.
We will have to be low.
If we play high and throw ourselves into the laundry, we will play their game. We will start from a low position, but we cannot do otherwise.
It will take sharpness, intelligence, and it will also take courage and luck.
If they ever give us a chance, we'll take it.
The sentence: "I do not forget that last year, the grass was cut on our feet in the Cup", Thierry Laurey (Paris FC)
For these 32nd finals of the Coupe de France, Paris FC will receive Valenciennes who beat them (1-0) on October 8 in L2.
“I don't forget that last year, we were cut off the rug on our feet in the Coupe de France by eliminating us after Lyon, launches Thierry Laurey.
Valenciennes will be like a league match.
It's true that it bothers us a bit to see that we haven't been able to win games at home lately.
It's been a while since we won at home.
But we give the maximum every time despite everything!
If we weren't well outside, we could really tell ourselves that it's a bad season, but fortunately, I think we're very, very well outside.

The challenge match of the weekend: FC 93 Bobigny aims for the lead against Haguenau
Irresistible before the truce (4 wins in a row) and carried by a fiery Farid Beziouen (6 goals in 4 games), FC 93 Bobigny, 2nd in group B of National 2 one point behind Fleury, is offered a great opportunity this Saturday in a late match against Haguenau.
A victory would indeed allow the team trained by Christophe Taine to seize the leader's chair alone.
Which would be a great feeling when you compare the means of Bobigny with Fleury or Créteil.
"Fleury and Créteil are much better equipped than us to get there, but we will try to finish as high as possible," said Farid Beziouen.

Player to watch: Ludovic Butelle (Red Star)
The experienced 39-year-old goalkeeper, who has played more than 450 pro games (Angers, Lille, Arles-Avignon, Metz, Nîmes, Brugge, Valence, Valladolid, etc.) is making a great start to the season in goal for Red Star.
He achieved 10 clean sheets in 12 games played, including 4 in the last games before the break.
With 10 goals conceded, the Red Star is also National's best defense.
Habib Beye's team will try to continue their good series this Friday in a late match in Cholet.
If successful, the Red Star would be two points behind Concarneau (1st) and one from Versailles (2nd).

Information: Poissy has appealed his sanction
Third in group A of National 2 with 25 points, behind Racing CFF and Rouen just before the break, Poissy, which receives Chartres this Saturday in a late match, now appears in 7th place.
The Yvelines club lost seven points (three from its victory against Rouen in September plus four penalties) on the green carpet due to a licensing issue.
Instead of looking ahead, he is only four points ahead of the relegated.
The management has decided to appeal: "The AS POISSY Football club, through its management committee, has decided to contest before the football appeal committee the merits of the sanction of 7 points pronounced against him on 16 December.
He therefore appealed to this commission and is now calmly awaiting the hearing in order to be heard, ”he wrote in a press release.
For the first match of the year, our pisciacais will receive the @ChartresFoot, this Saturday, in a late match of the 1️⃣4️⃣th day 👊
We are waiting for you to encourage our 🟡🔵 pic.twitter.com /q7Ylp09x1C

The match to go to: Ivry and Aubervilliers, first place at stake
This is one of the posters of the weekend in Île-de-France.
The late National 3 match between Ivry (4th, 18 points) and Aubervilliers (2nd, 20 points) is a small turning point.
It will allow the winner to start the year 2023 in the leader's chair.
Which would also be the case for Auber if he returns from the Clerville stadium with a draw.
Among young people: the great challenge of Linas-Montlhéry and Neuilly-sur-Marne in Gambardella
After the elimination of Montfermeil and FC 93 Bobigny during the 1st federal round in December, there are still 9 Ile-de-France clubs still qualified for the 32nd finals of the Gambardella Cup (the French Cup for U19/U18) which takes place this weekend. end.
