CDF 2018

National 2 club Fleury 91 will welcome National 3’s ASC Biesheim to the Stade Robert-Bobin, confident of making it through to the Round of 32. The Alsatian visitors will, however, be going all-out for a win, believing that it may finally earn them some love amongst the largely nonplussed locals.

Coupe de France 32emes : Stade Rennais v PSG

CDF 2018

A repeat of last season’s Coupe de France match up, albeit a round earlier this time round, Rennes host runaway Ligue 1 leaders PSG on Sunday evening.

CDF 2018

USL Dunkerque vs FC Metz After a horrific start to the season, Ligue 1’s Metz began showing some signs of life shortly before the winter break, ending 2017 with two wins and a draw.

CDF 2018

Saint-Etienne vs Nimes Although on paper, Ligue 1 giants at home to a Ligue 2 club should point to a relatively comfortable home win, this tie has potential upset warning alarms ringing.

Coupe de France 32emes : AS Yzeure v AS Monaco

CDF 2018

In one of the more obvious David vs Goliath clashes, the glitz, glamour and wealth of Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco side travel to central France to take on 4th tier AS Yzeure. AS Yzeure, or to give them their “commercial” name, Moulins-Yzeure Foot, a name which came about when neighbouring side AS Moulins liquidated in 2016 and a subsequent deal was […]

Coupe de France 32emes : AS Nancy Lorraine v Olympique Lyonnais

CDF 2018

On the face of it Lyon’s Round of 64 clash in the Coupe de France against Nancy should see the visitors scamper away from the Stade Marcel Picot with a comfortable victory.  The Ligue 1 side are currently sitting pretty in third having reeled off four straight league wins going into the winter break. Nancy on the other hand are […]
