On April 6, Parc des Sports (Annecy) will host the 1/2 final match of the Coupe de France, in which Annecy will compete with Toulouse. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team once (to be honest, it exists a little less than a century) reached the French Ligue 2. Then, there was such a deaf and protracted relegation that the club was forgotten for a long time. Speaking about the middle of the previous project, it had to rise from the “swamp” and, fortunately, the breakthrough from the very amateur level to the Ligue 2 took less than a decade – it resulted in the access to the second division of the country almost a year ago. It is reasonable to emphasize that even here the newcomer looks quite combat-ready, and it is already more or less confident to state that relegation from Ligue 2 will not happen (at the same time, there is no chance for a total relaxation). The higher mentioned fact helps focus on the Coupe de France properly. It is clear that the club record has already been set by reaching the semi-finals of the tournament – it was necessary to cope with 6 opponents to achieve it. It goes without saying that the penalty shoot-outs have already become decisive three times in a row. On the other hand, even Marseille was beaten in such a way. The grandee made a comeback in the 6th added minute of the home game, but the underdog traditionally became stronger in the shoot-outs.
The club is far from the strongest ones in France. The 3rd place, taken back in 2007, is its limit. Moreover, there have been multiple relegations to the Ligue 2, which then were followed by the further promotions. The year of 2022, when Philippe Montagnier, who had become the coach, took the 1st place in a weaker division in his starting season, proves the higher mentioned fact. And even being at the old-new level, his wards are quite high in the standings – not far from the so-called “equator”. At the same time, the project also seems to be worthy in the framework of the current Coupe de France draw – it has already overcome Ajaccio and even Reims, moreover, Rodez has been defeated with a 6-1 score.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Since Toulouse left the Ligue 2, the team will play against Annecy for the first time.
Bookmakers believe that “Le Téfécé” will not repeat Marseille’s mistake of underestimating the underdog. Thus, we bet on the victory of the guests (odd: 2.15).
