Bergerac hosts Versailles in the Coupe de France quarterfinals. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 9th at Stade Francis Rongieras (Perigueux)
Bergerac represents Championnat National 2, the fourth tier in the French football league system. And you understand what level this team has. Nevertheless, Lanuzell’s men have already gone through five rounds in the French Cup. They eliminated Montlucon (0-1), Stade Bordelais (4-0), Metz (0-0 and 5-4 on penalties), Creteil (0-0 and 5-4 on penalties), and St. Etienne (1-0). As you can see, even two representatives of the elite division were knocked out. Currently, Bergerac is in first place in the Championnat National 2 standings. After 17 rounds, the team has 35 points. The gap from 2nd place is six points. The last nine official matches in all competitions ended with “Both teams to score — no.”

Like Bergerac, Versailles also competes in Championnat National 2 and leads the standings. After 17 rounds, the team has 34 points. The Blue-Blacks have also gone through five rounds of the French Cup. Interestingly, they beat all the opponents in regulation time: Olympique Lumbrois (2-3), Poissy (1-0), Sarre-Union (0-1), La Roche (4-0), and Toulouse (1-0). Of course, the victory over the last opponent became the most sensational. As for the current conditions of Versailles, the team has played 23 official matches in all competitions and has not suffered a single defeat.
Bergerac and Versailles play in the same division, but in different groups. However, they have never crossed paths. In the last six home games of Bergerac in the French Cup, at least one side didn’t score. If you rely on bookmakers’ coefficients, Bergerac has a slightly higher chance of winning. I think this is primarily due to the home status of the match. Still, the hosts have no other advantages. They are exactly in the same good shape as their opponents. I think we are in for an equal confrontation. Both teams can make a historic achievement, so their motivation will be sky high. Most likely, they will act cautiously because even one conceded goal can ruin everything.
