Five Ile-de-France clubs play this Saturday and Sunday the 8th round of the Coupe de France with the aim of qualifying for the 32nd end


How many Ile-de-France clubs will join PSG this Monday night during the draw for the 32nd final of the Coupe de France? The last five survivors of the Ligue de Paris-Ile-de-France are on deck this Saturday and Sunday during the 8th round to win the precious sesame and perhaps inherit early January a Ligue 1 formation of which it will then be the entry into the competition.

Paris FC will rotate, but not too much...

After their miraculous qualification at the end of the suspense in Villejuif (R1) in the previous round (5-4 on penalties), Paris FC (L2), in full recovery in the league (5 wins out of the last 7 games), receives at the Charléty stadium, four days after having delighted their fans against Rodez (2-0), Saint-Denis FC, who have just finished 4th in their Reunion championship.

"It's our 3rd match in a week, in terms of the body and the mental load, I felt that there was fatigue," explained Stéphane Gilli, the coach of the Parisians. But we will have to be serious and not take this match lightly. We prepared for this match with the same rigour and quality as a Ligue 2 match. »

The staff will rotate their team but not entirely. "There will be 3-4 players who have had less playing time lately, like Lohann Doucet who is coming back from shoulder surgery, who will come back to bring freshness," Gilli said. But we're going to keep a backbone, because putting 11 players who don't play often wouldn't be doing them any favours. »

🎙 "Preparing for this match like a league match"

Beware of the Guadeloupean trap for Fleury

Nearly 7 years after his most beautiful adventure in the Coupe de France (defeat 1-0 in Avranches in the 16th final), Fleury travels to Guadeloupe to face CS Moule. An opponent that the Essonniens, 6th in their group (D) in N2, had faced and beaten (0-3) at the same stage of the competition in 2016.

"We're expecting a very difficult match, it's going to come down to lucidity and efficiency," said president Pascal Bovis. We went from 0 to 30 degrees in a few hours, we have to adapt even if we won't complain. I see this meeting as a human adventure. »

The delegation of the 91 arrived in Guadeloupe with 40 and not 22 (the air and ground travel expenses and accommodation of the teams are covered by the FFF for 22 people). "I invited several volunteer leaders and the players contributed so that the whole squad could come here," says Pascal Bovis. The match will take place on a synthetic pitch and will kick off at 15 p.m. local time (10 a.m. local time).

Le Plessis-Robinson challenges L2 leaders

After having eliminated Houilles AC (0-2) in the previous round, SCO d'Angers, leader of Ligue 2, travels once again to the Paris region to face another R1 team from the Paris region, Le Plessis-Robinson (R1). This is the first participation of the Hauts-de-Seine team at this stage of the competition. "Even if we're up against a club that's rooted in French football and at the top of Ligue 2, we're competitors, we're going to believe in it," insists coach Julien Zenguinian. We studied their game. We're going to prepare ourselves as best we can by trying to annoy them. »

Racing for a 32nd, 20 after...

On Sunday, Racing CFF, 7th in their N2 group, travel to Normandy to AS Villers Houlgate (6th in their group in N3). If the Racingmen have made a good run in the competition, they are on the other hand losing momentum in the league with a series of 5 games without a win (2 draws and 3 defeats). The last time Racing played in the round of 32 was 20 years ago.

"Racing has a great history with this cup (five-time winner) and we want to go further and write a story together with the boys," said coach Guillaume Norbert. The Coupe de France can be a good way to get back on track with a win and regain confidence. It's an important match for our cup run but also to get back into our league. We will have to put a lot of intensity and desire. It will be a tough game against a good team who will be playing in front of their fans. »

The SSG Agreement to Regain the Light

After playing in the round of 32 in 2018 and a round of 16 in 2019, Entente SSG hopes to have another great adventure even if the Val-d'Oisiens, last in their group in N3, do not start as favourites against the Corsicans of AS Furiani-Agliani (3rd in group C of N2).

"It's very good to have made it this far, it has allowed us to play an official game every weekend since the start of the season," explained coach Jimmy Modeste. These cup matches have allowed us to get back on track in the league (Editor's note: the Entente have won their last 2 games in N3). We're going to give it our all against a good team. It's a bonus match that rewards the good run of the boys since the beginning of the competition. We also want to give a good image of the club through this event. »

The Ile-de-France club program:

Saturday, 15 p.m.: Le Plessis-Robinson (R1) - Angers (L2) (Parc des sports du Hameau); CS Le Moule (R1 Guadeloupe) - Fleury (N2); 17 p.m.: Paris FC (L2) - Saint-Denis FC (R1 Réunion) (stade Charléty, Paris XIIIe). Sunday, 13:30 p.m.: AS Villers Houlgate (N3) - Racing CFF (N2); 15 p.m.: Entente SSG (N3) - Furiani (R2) (Michel-Hidalgo stadium in Saint-Gratien).
