Football: La Tamponnaise will face RC Pays de Grasse in the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France.

The next opponent of the Tamponnaise was drawn this Monday, November 21. Jean-Pierre Bade’s men will face in the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France, a National 2 team, Racing Club Pays de Grasse. This Sunday, they narrowly passed the 8th round by beating FCM Aubervilliers by one but to zero.

Jean-Pierre Bade had dreamed for the next round of the Coupe de France, of a beautiful poster, of an exceptional team and place. The Tamponnaise coach has already seen his men run on the mythical Vélodrome stadium in Marseille and face a certain attacker, a local child named Dimitri Payet. A crazy dream.

It is a completely different opponent that the southerners will face next January, the reds and blues of Racing Club Pays de Grasse, a club founded in 1959, which for its part ousted Onet-Le-Château during the 8th lap.

The Tamponnaise coach, who himself played for OM in 1986 and 1987, believes, however, that it is “of a good draw”.

About the players of RC Pays de Grasse, Jean-Pierre Bade considers that ” the team is in all modesty within our reach. We will prepare well for this game.”

Despite the holidays and vacations, the next six weeks will be a time of intense preparation for the Tamponnaise which hopes” why not come back with a qualification”.

Sunday, November 20, the Tampon qualified for the round of 16, in the last minutes of play, by scoring a small but zero against FCM Aubervilliers.
