Sports | Coupe de France: Angers and Metz, residents of Ligue 1, eliminated by clubs from N3 and N2
Angers, ninth in Ligue 1, was eliminated in the 32nd final of the Coupe de France, beaten 2-0 by Linas-Montlhéry (National 3) this Sunday. The Essonne club won thanks to a double from Pascal Neto (9th, 24th).
Bergerac (N2) achieved the feat of qualifying for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France at the expense of Metz, eliminated at the end of the penalty shootout (0-0, 5 tab to 4) in Dordogne. In a rather balanced match with no real scoring opportunities, played on the municipal rugby field with many false rebounds, the Périgord fans, leaders of their N2 group, managed the fateful session perfectly, in particular their goalkeeper Pierre Laborde who released the attempt of Pope Sarr.
Never in its history has the Bergerac club succeeded in eliminating a Ligue 1 club.
