Les Herbiers vs Chambly Prediction & Betting tips
The first semi-final of the Coupe de France surprisingly has two thirds of the class leaders. In-house the surprisingly well performing Les Herbiers takes on the surprisingly surprising Chambly. In the Championnat National, both teams no longer play any significant role, but which team will take the chance to play the final of the Coupe de France?
Of all four teams in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France, Les Herbiers is the only one who on the way to the semi-final (and probably the final) did not have any team from the Ligue 1 as an opponent. In the eighth finals and quarter finals, the team of Stéphane Masala with AJ Auxerre and RC Lens had two tough opponents from the Ligue 2, but Les Herbiers nevertheless managed to survive both games. AJ Auxerre had little to do against Masala’s team, but the not too high-flying game against RC Lens was exciting until the end. With a 0-0 score after the regular playing time and extra time, it came down to penalty kicks and despite the fact that Les Herbiers still trailed 1-2 after two penalties per team, Masala’s players managed to turn the tide, which guaranteed now a third division in the final of the Coupe de France.
Match winner against Lens was Sebastien Flochon, a midfielder who entered the decisive penalty untenable. Five years ago, Flochon was still a promising talent from the Olympique Lyonnais youth academy, but after wandering around Le Havre and Bastia, Flochon now plays, not entirely without merit, with third division Les Herbiers. Does the 25-year-old Frenchman realize one of his childhood dreams with a place in the finale of the Coupe de France, or does the fairytale stand here for him and his team?
With a win over RC Strasbourg in the quarter finals of this tournament, Chambly can be called the surprise of this tournament. Only 38% possession had the Bruno Luzi team, but the third-divisioner was allowed to go up with arms after ninety minutes, given the 1-0 score on the scoreboard. Like Tuesday’s opponent, Chambly had little opposition in the tournament until the quarter-finals, but the quarter-finals themselves were a memorable match. After the great victory at Strasbourg, Chambly can prepare for the fourth race against Les Herbiers in a year and the chance of a place in the Coupe de France final is more real than ever.
Lassana Doucouré will have all her eyes established in the meeting with Les Herbiers. In 2015 Doucouré returned to the team where he made his debut in professional football and now he is on the threshold of perhaps the only chance in his career at a grand prize. The 29-year-old Frenchman personally shot his team to the semi-finals of this tournament and with a goal in each of his last three matches he knows a good preparation for perhaps the most important game of his life so far.
