FC Metz qualified on Saturday for the round of 16 of the Coupe du France, unlike Lorient.
It begins with a history of penalties, three exactly whistled by referee Stéphanie Frappart during this Valenciennes-FC Metz. The first in favor of VA, conceded by Messin Centonze, was stopped by goalkeeper Caillard from the 5e in this 16e of the Coupe de France final played on Saturday at the Stade du Hainaut.
The Grenats defender is again involved in the penalty area, but that of the Northerners two minutes later. He transforms the penalty for the opening of the scoring (0-1, 7e), imitated by Ambrose (0-2, 34th).
Frédéric Antonetti’s men, surprising sixth in the Ligue 1 standings, will give this qualification a little more scope thanks to Vagner (0-3, 61e) and especially Pape Mate Sarr. The shot curled by the young midfielder is to be savored (0-4, 89e).
Lorient, on the other hand, weakens the elite contingent a bit more in the next round. Les Merlus fell in Le Puy, 1-0, against this National 2 club.
It’s also over for the US Montagnarde (Regional 1). Le petit poucet cracked in Saumur (National 3) after the penalty shootout (3-3, 4 tab to 3)
