Toulouse hosts Versailles in the Coupe de France 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Saturday, January 29th at Stadium Municipal (Toulouse)
Toulouse played its last official match on January 22. The team shared points with Bastia away (0-0). But that draw was enough to be in a clean 1st place. At the moment, Montanier’s men are in very good form. They have not suffered a single defeat in the last seven matches in all tournaments (four victories and three draws). In the current French Cup, Toulouse has already gone through four rounds, beating the following opponents: Libourne (0-0 and a victory on penalties), Trelissac (1-3), Nimes (4-1), and Cannes (0-1). I would like to note that Toulouse reached the quarterfinals of the last cup draw. This year the team has a chance to perform at least as well.

Versailles competes in the Championnat National 2. This is the fourth division of French football. And the team is on the 1st line in the standings there (33 points earned in 16 matches). For the Blue-Blacks, reaching the 1/8 finals of the French Cup is already a huge achievement. Along the way, the team knocked out the following opponents: Neuilly-sur-Marne (-1), Olympique Lumbrois (3-2), Poissy (1-0), Sarre-Union (0:1), and La Roche-sur-Yon (4-0). As you can see, Versailles had no really strong opponents. The match against Toulouse promises to turn into a real test. By the way, reaching the 1/8 finals of the French Cup is now the biggest achievement for Versailles in this tournament. Even if the Blue-Blacks can’t go further, no one will blame them for anything!
Toulouse and Versailles have never crossed paths in any of the existing tournaments. As for the Violets, they have not suffered a single defeat in the last five cup home matches (four victories and one draw). And they have scored at least one goal in eight out of nine last games in this tournament. Few people expected to see Versailles at this stage of the French Cup. But in fairness, I should note that all the previous opponents of the team were of a very low level. Now the Blue-Blacks have to play against a team that plays in Ligue 2 but has every chance of being promoted to the elite next season. The visitors can again show their best football, but it is far from certain that they will have enough performance skills. The hosts are simply stronger. They can win if they just play their football. They don’t have to do anything else!
