On April 6, the Parc des Sport will host the 1/2 final match of the French Cup, in which Annecy will meet with Toulouse. The start of the fight is scheduled for 21:45 Kyiv time.
The club may well be considered the Cinderella of football. It cannot be said that this is a completely no-name, soon they will celebrate the 100th anniversary here. But back in the middle of the last decade, I had to play at a practically semi-amateur level. And the red-whites returned to League 2 only at the end of last season. There, however, the team plays, albeit not brilliantly, but not bad enough not to think so constantly about the risk of a possible relegation back to Nacional. Even after losing to Nim, there is still a distance from the danger zone. This provided the opportunity to shoot in the cup. There have passed already 6 opponents. Basically, of course, we were lucky with the draw (and already managed to win the penalty shoot-out three times), but in the quarter-finals there was already a real sensation: Marseille was removed from the draw (2:2 and also a success in 11-meters).
The team is in many ways similar, according to the last football year, to its rival. Although, of course, in general, it is quoted orders of magnitude higher than a frankly little-known noname. But, like Annecy, Tefese switched divisions in 2022. And it looks quite decent at the level of Ligue 1, keeping in the middle of the standings. Philippe Montagnier’s wards started April on the field of Brest, losing 1:3 – obviously, thoughts were no longer about that meeting. Increasing priority is given to the French Cup. There, Toulouse played only 4 opponents, starting later, only in January. But with more status rivals, among whom were Ajaccio and Reims. However, on the 1st of March they coped with Rodez, defeating him 6:1.
Due to Toulouse’s promotion to Ligue 1, the sides never crossed paths this season.
Bookmakers believe that Annecy has already exhausted their entire supply of luck. Toulouse should take into account the misfires of Marseille, so it is worth betting on the victory of the guests in the semi-finals with a coefficient of 1.88.
