Coupe de France: huge disappointment for Aubervilliers (N3) beaten in Reunion

The Kébert Picard stadium in Le Tampon falls into a gentle madness. As the penalty shootout loomed, the Aubervilliers players bent on a free kick taken over in two stages by Nedelec (1-0, 90th + 3). A huge stab. The Tamponnaise trained by Jean-Pierre Bade, passed by the L1 in the 1980s and 90s (Lens, OM, Nantes, Strasbourg, Bordeaux…) will therefore go to Metropolitan France for the 32nd finals at the beginning of January. Twelve years after the unforgettable one against PSG at the Parc des Princes, Aubervilliers, who had eliminated QRM (L2) in the previous round, will not relive a new 32nd final.

On the field, while the players from Reunion sing and dance, the disappointment is enormous for those of Auber.

“Congratulations to this Tampon team and thank you to the Reunionese for the welcome”

Boubacare Camara, the second goalkeeper of Aubervilliers, aligned in the Coupe de France had however had no save to make during the 90 minutes. Deprived of five holders (Nomenjanahary, Cherry, Etshimi who remained in Metropolitan France, Atangana and Konaté), Aubervilliers had control of the game, especially in the first period (zero shots for La Tamponnaise) but failed to materialize its obvious hold on a rather delicate lawn. After this beautiful week in Reunion, the last evening promises to be bitter. The return is scheduled for Monday and the ordinary N3 championship will resume on Saturday with a 93 derby against JA Drancy. But we will have to digest…

“We are punished on a generous set piece where we lack concentration after the stoppage of our goalkeeper, regrets Rachid Youcef. It’s disappointing in relation to our burst of energy. We had managed to extinguish the platform and calm the fervor of the platform. We always felt Auber’s superiority, we were in control, we weren’t put in danger. It’s cruel but it’s football… But congratulations to this Tampon team and thank you to the Reunionese for the welcome. »
