Guingamp and Amiens cleared the obstacle of the 7th round of the Coupe de France on Sunday. If the Bretons did it without trembling (2-0) against Auray (Regional 1), the Picards got their ticket against Chambly (National 2) after a hung derby, settled on penalties (1- 1, 5-3 at tabs).
The EAG was able to count on Baptiste Guillaume, author of one goal per period, to dispose of the Morbihan team and join the 8th round of the competition (November 20).
Unhappy Karamoko in Chambly
Amiens, on the other hand, was very close to getting bogged down at the Stade des Marais in Chambly. Quickly led (15th), Philippe Hinschberger’s team equalized just before the break on a header from their captain Mamadou Fofana (1-1, 43rd).
The qualification was played on the missed shot on goal by Hamadou Karamoko, the 2nd shooter from Chambly. Cruel for the defender who had found the bar while his team was leading 1-0 (18th). The 4th of L2, who played without his rookie Gaël Kakuta, injured, succeeded in all his attempts.
League 2 lost five reps in Saturday’s matches (Saint-Etienne, Le Havre, Laval, Dijon and QRM). She will know the final number of her qualifiers after the visit of FC Metz on the lawn of Raon-L’Etape (N3), Tuesday at 6 p.m.
