SO Cholet v Stade Brestois 29 – Preview

In the previous round little Cholet from CFA2 took on the mighty Beauvais – aka the greatest team the world has never seen – and lived to tell the tale, getting the better of the penalty shoot-out after what by all accounts was a fairly lifeless, mostly chanceless and definitely  goalless draw.
